Industrial laser converting systems and services provider LasX Industries (St. Paul, MN) has entered into a distribution partnership with Dr. Wirth Grafische Technik (Frankfurt, Germany). Under the agreement, Dr. Wirth Grafische Technik will distribute LasX Industries' laser systems throughout Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (known as the DACH region).
Dr. Wirth Grafische Technik began as a regional printing press company and developed into an international group, with branches in Germany and abroad. The company's focus is in the graphic arts industry throughout Germany, Central Europe, and China.
"Our partnership with LasX provides a broad range of new possibilities in the field of package and print processing," explains Wolfgang Dammer, managing director of Dr. Wirth Grafische Technik. LasX's laser processing systems combine laser cutting, scoring, and perforating processes with instant conversion technology, eliminating the need for costly tools and expensive setup times, and resulting in faster delivery. Their systems can be integrated into both commercial and package printing machines to create a complete digital workflow, Dammer says.
