Durpa Germany show

From May 28 to June 7, GP2 Technologies will join thousands of exhibitors from over 45 countries at drupa 2024, one of the world’s largest B2B trade fairs, in Düsseldorf, Germany. Attendees will be able to meet the GP2 Technologies team and experience their equipment in Hall 14, at booth 14D14, throughout the tradeshow. 

This year, GP2 Technologies will offer live demonstrations of their “one-off” Cover-1 casemaker as well as their CT-1 cover trimmer:

  • The Cover-1 is the leading solution for automating ultra-short-run hardcover production. It will showcase the capability of running covers of varying heights, widths, and spines with every machine cycle.
  • This casemaking system also integrates board and spine trimming in-line and is bar code driven for accuracy and simplicity. 
  • The CT-1 will operate in conjunction with the Cover-1 by trimming standard-size press sheets down to the precise size required for casemaking.

LD Davis adhesives are commonly run on the Cover-1 at customer sites across North America and worldwide. Drupa will once again provide the stage for demonstrating the simple, cost-effective POD hardcover solutions from GP2 Technologies. Additionally, attendees will see firsthand the latest innovations driving the future of print and have the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics related to print, packaging, labeling, graphic design, AI, and emerging technologies in the printing industry. 

Whether you’re interested in attending an educational seminar, connecting with professionals in your field, or seeking a specific printing solution to enhance your capabilities, you can experience it at drupa! Register now to confirm your place for this one-of-a-kind event for printing professionals.
