Currie Group Roadshow Kicks Off at Visual Impact Brisbane


CurrieGroup has announced it will be bringing its mobile showroom to Stand A28 at VisualImpact in Brisbane next week, giving visitors to the show a VIP preview of itslatest technology Roadshow on what will be the show’s largest stand by acountry mile.

Currie Group is well known for itsinnovative Roadshows, trucking the latest technology around the country toprovide print service providers with hands-on access to the very latesttechnologies.

Now, Visual Impact visitors will have theopportunity to see its latest iteration, which showcases inline automatedbooklet production via the innovative combination of an HP Indigo 7900 DigitalPress with a Horizon 200 series booklet maker.

The combo, which made its world debut atPacPrint 2017 in Melbourne last year, delivers true ‘end-to-end’ productivityand solutions and is a perfect illustration of automated printing – a themewhich is underscored by the company’s eye-catching Robot, which will also be onthe mobile showroom.

“The Horizon booklet maker takes the sheetsfrom the HP Indigo and, in one operation, stitches, folds and trims, to delivera finished product onto the conveyor at the far end, all without a single touchpoint,” explains Currie Group Sales & Marketing Director, Phillip Rennell.

The setup, which Rennell admits only fitsinto the specially modified truck ‘by the width of a sheet of paper’, willprovide an interesting addition to the diverse range of technology on show atthe Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

It will be complemented by a range offinishing equipment – Horizon RD-4055 rotary die-cutting system, HorizonSmartSlitter sheet cutter and creaser, Horizon CRF-362 creaser and folder,Foliant Mercury 400SF laminator, which will be set up on the apron in front ofthe mobile showroom.

The company’s involvement at Visual Impact madesense, says Rennell, particularly given that the company is about to kick offanother major Roadshow from outside the company’s showroom in Queensland’s sunnycapital on 2 and 3 May, before heading South to Albury and Adelaide.

“We have a long association with VI, so weknow the value of the show and its importance to the industry,” he said. “Giventhat our next Roadshow event will start outside our Brisbane showroom earlynext month, VI Brisbane was the perfect opportunity for us to give some of theindustry’s key decision makers a look at technology many of them may not havehad the opportunity to see at PacPrint, while also kicking off the Roadshow.”

Visual Impact will open its doors next Thursday,19 April, and run from 10am till 6pm on Thursday and Friday, and from 10amuntil 4pm on Saturday 21st. To skip the queues, register online or for moreinformation about the show, go to the Visual Connections website.
