A remarkable growth in 2018 05/11/2018 2018 has been an important year for Tapematic. The number of installations for the PST Line have almost doubled over 2017, bringing the total number PST Lines installed worldwide over 40. The 2019 will see the first installation of PST Line II and BT II in addition to the traditional PST Line I lines. The target as usual is to follow and support the customers in the best possible way dedicating to each customer the required time to support the production startup. The positive note is related to the repeated orders. Those customers that purchased the first PST Line I years ago, are adding additional PST Lines. When this happens, this makes the Tapematic team even more proud and motivated in doing always better.
Extraordinary interest on the Tapematic In-line Decoration Module 01/11/2018 The Tapematic In-Line Decoration Module (IDM) has received extraordinary interest in its simplicity but also in the zero consumable cost it utilizes. There are no inks, clichés or any raw materials used. Because the IDM can be placed In-Line with the PST Lines this allows some special effects that can be achieved, either pre sputtering or post sputter provide different effects. Pre sputtering provides a subtle embossing effect while post sputtering allows for the decoration to use the raw material color of the plastic below the sputtering as the color! While this can be achieved off-line, the important aspect of performing this task in-line is that there continues to be the full protection that the top coat offers thereby not infringing any tests that the end customer requires to be passed.
Extra PST Line contracts for delivery 2019 in China 06/09/2018 Tapematic announces the signature of two major contracts for the supply of several PST Lines to the Chinese market. Thanks, also, to the recent emission restrictions law, enforced by the Chinese government, several Chinese companies have been exploring seriously the Tapematic PST Line solution. The first Tapematic PST Line has been installed in China this past June 2018. End of 2018 and beginning of 2019 will see the installation of additional PST Lines.
