Speaking to PrintWeek India, Friedrich Faulhaber, managing director, GUK-Vijuk-Sigma group, said, “The best in class miniature folding machine will be affordable and will have attractive return-on-investment.”

While Faulhaber will not be present during the launch, GUK's India partner Impel-Welbound will release the specification and capabilities of this high-capacity miniature folding machine.

Faulhaber said, “I will miss India and PS19, this time. I was here for the PS18 and enjoyed spending time with our customers as well as meeting the massive number of printers and suppliers at this major event."

He added, "India is a one of our most important markets, and we have strong partners in form of Impel-Welbound who market and position our world-class products effectively and provide excellent after-sales support. The years 2017 and 2018 have been very good years globally, as well as in India, and we hope to continue the same in 2019.”

Pallippuram Sajith, director of Impel-Welbound group, said, “There is a demand from the market to have an efficient equipment that can replace multiple old machines."

The Multimaster 38, which will be manufactured in Germany, features fold pockets and deflectors, microprocessor-powered controller with counting function, and suction feeder PBA will come with vacuum pumps. It will come with four or six buckles in the first stage and four in the second. It will also be equipped with a GUK stacker to collect the leaflets.

The Multimaster 38 is scheduled to start shipping from March 2019.
