David Greenaway, Owner at Wrap Creations adds: “The open house really helped us in making a decision on the direction of our business. I was really impressed with the technology and demonstrations on display as well as Spandex’s helpful team.”

Hardware Demonstrations

Visitors to the Open House got to experience demonstrations of a wide range of printing technologies from HP, Roland, Epson and Sawgrass. The UK debut of swissQprint’s Impala LED UV flatbed printer impressed many visitors along with swissQprint’s new fully automated robotic loading and unloading system – ROB the Robot.

The demonstrations also offered visitors the chance to speak with equipment suppliers and Spandex experts. Visitors could also take advantage of excellent hardware promotions, many of which were taken up over the two days.

Hands-on Applications

There was a wide variety of hands-on demonstrations over the two days including vehicle wrapping, interior décor, wall coverings and textile applications, which meant that visitors could try new skills first-hand.
