Meech targets international labelling market at Labelexpo Americas 2014

Meech CyClean
Labelexpo Americas ’14 (9th - 11th September, Rosemont, Illinois) will see Meech International reaffirm its position as the world’s leading provider for static control and web cleaning technologies. Visitors to stand 1515 will be able to view first-hand the company’s range of systems, including the Hyperion static bars and CyClean non-contact web cleaner, as well as a series of new enhancements to be announced closer to the show. All of these products are employed extensively in the labelling industry.

Matt Fyffe, VP/General Manager of Meech Static Eliminators USA Inc states, “We are very much looking forward to be back at Labelexpo Americas this year. Meech is aware that the labelling market is growing considerably on an annual basis and the show always draws an international visitor base. In that respect, not only is Labelexpo an excellent launch pad for new products, it is also a podium where we can network and market our services to a wide variety of businesses from around the world.”

Over the course of the past decades, Meech has successfully established a strong presence in the static and web cleaning markets on a global scale. Aside from the USA, the company also has offices in China, India, as well as Central and Eastern Europe, which service these regions directly. Additionally, Meech’s British headquarters services an even greater number of countries across the world, including Brazil, Israel, Australia, Japan and South Korea. All of this export resulted in the company being twice presented with a Queens Award for Enterprise: International Sales.

“Our strong international presence bears testament to the fact that we are able to communicate best practice and services to the high number of our customers that are spread in various locations throughout the globe,” comments Matt. “As we’re constantly looking to expand our business in all of the regions we deal with, our aim is to capitalise on the show’s popularity and demonstrate that we can provide our customers and prospects with the very best levels of service and technology that have become synonymous with the Meech brand.”

Among the systems displayed on the Meech stand will be the CyClean, a product that has proven to be highly popular in the labelling sector. A compact, non-contact, double-sided blow and vacuum-based web cleaner, the CyClean is capable of removing contamination to below 1 micron and can be used with all substrates, improving the flexibility of the press. Unlike a tacky roller system, it is not affected by high contamination levels and has no consumable costs.

Also on exhibition is the complete range of Hyperion static control bars, comprised of the 971, 971IPS and 929IPS. The two latter bars in particular were developed as a response to customer feedback and provide efficient ionisation from a 24v power supply. Both systems provide high-standard static elimination, while the bars’ default settings allow quick and easy installation and use on label production lines.

“Labelexpo Americas is set to be a great opportunity for Meech,” concludes Matt. “We will effectively be showcasing to an international audience the most comprehensive range of web cleaning and static control technologies we have to offer, and we are confident they will attract a great amount of interest at the show.”

Available immediately, Meech’s complete static control and web-cleaning ranges will be on display on the Meech stand (1515) at Labelexpo Americas, Rosemont, Illinois from September 9th to 11th, 2014.
