A year ago, at Labelexpo Europe 2017, Monomatic and KTI announced their partnership when exhibiting together on the same stand.
KTI was looking for a way to increase their product offerings to their current customer base, and to increase their presence in Europe. The North American company offers nonstop unwinds and rewinds with roll diameters up to 50” (1270 mm), web widths up to 72” (1829 mm) and speeds up to 1000 fpm (305 m/min).
Monomatic was trying to be stronger on the US market. However, without a base there, the company was finding it particularly difficult. Monomatic promotes KTI’s range of machines in Europe for the narrow web market. KTI is part of the Quantum Design Product line and is now selling Monomatic equipment to the North American Market.
According to the company, on the basis of this alliance, Monomatic has received a lot of requests for quotations for narrow web equipment, specifically for tag and label applications, as well in the pharmaceutical sector as for the food industry, the cosmetic industry, RFID applications and other markets.
