(PresseBox) (Korntal-Münchingen, )drupa 2008 was a successful exhibition for TAMPOPRINT® AG. Much frequented, with more than 80% foreign visitors, this exhibition showed that TAMPOPRINT® AG Germany is the unchallenged world market leader in the market of tampon printing machines. The demonstration machine showed by TAMPOPRINT® AG and consisting of a patented "Hybrid" tampon printing machine with integrated laser cliché manufacturing, a UV laser marking component as well as a robot handling, was met with large interest. Here it was impressively demonstrated how the tampon printing in combination with the extremely flexible laser marking forms an optimal complementary symbiosis. Even the already successfully sold 4- to 6-colour tampon printing line "Concentra", equipped with a jig for the photorealistic printing on paper cubes, attracted new prospective customers. The industrial tampon printing will be further automatised in future, as the incoming orders for production lines at TAMPOPRINT® AG and the strong interest in the automation demonstrated at the drupa 2008 have shown. This proves also an order for 6,5 million EUR for the supply industry for medical devices which was signed recently. TAMPOPRINT® AG is in a position to realise complex tasks. A new rotary tampon printing unit - "RTI-Kompakt E II" - was also demonstrated at the show. The rotary printing units are preferentially used for the decorating of cylindrical printing parts or for bottle caps. This rotary tampon printing technology has been used in a further developed technology and a newly designed automation "TopSpin C" for the one colour printing on the circumference of tubes. This demonstration line will print 20.000 tubes per hour. The "Top Spin C" will be presented to the public at the Fakuma 2008 in Friedrichshafen (hall A1, stand 1302). TAMPOPRINT® AG is highly satisfied with the results of the drupa 2008.
