Avanti Conveyors signs agency agreement with Automatan

This agreement means that Avanti Conveyors will be offering the Automatan product range in Europe. Automatan is an international company based in the US that supplies innovative robotics and graphics-related equipment to the corrugated and folding carton, litho and flexo printing industries.

The Automatan product range includes the AutoFeed robotic prefeeder, which can be used on rotary and flatbed die cutters and also flexo folder gluers. The AutoFeed can increase productivity and reduce manual labour costs. The AutoFeed has the ability to feed a variety of material from microflute to triplewall. It can also dispose of defective bottom sheets. The AutoFeed can save over 50% floor space when compared to a conventional prefeeder.

Other products on offer via Avanti Conveyors are Label/Laminators, and load turning and handling equipment. Load handling equipment includes joggers and load turners, which are highly efficient, low maintenance, and provide years of trouble-free load handling. The Automatan Jogger/Aerator can dramatically reduce labour costs whilst increasing product quality and the productivity of down-line equipment.

Avanti Conveyors will also be offering a full installation and support service to Automatan’s customers in Europe.

“We are delighted that the agreement with Automatan provides us the opportunity to offer European customers a wider range of products”, commented Simon Mander, Managing Director, Avanti Conveyors. “Local support will offer both new and existing customers the ability to maximise the operation and efficiency of their equipment.”

“Automatan has been looking for a qualified OEM sales agent in Europe and we are pleased to have come to an agreement with Avanti Conveyors”, commented Randall Lorenz, President of Automatan. “The combination of our equipment with the Avanti conveyor systems is a natural fit.”
