Welbound Worldwide, India's leading supplier of post press solutions have inked an agreement with Baumann Maschinenbau Solms to offer the Wohlenberg guillotines in SAARC nations. BMS is part of the Baumann group – one of the largest business firms for the graphic industry systems and consumables in Germany. Wohlenberg is a very popular brand of cutting systems known for their high reliability and life expectancy. Volkmar Assman, the Managing Director of Baumann is pleased that they could get a capable partner to promote the Wohlenberg- Baumann cutting systems in India.

"The modern day Cutting systems are much beyond the ubiquitous guillotines. They need to be employed efficiently in order to derive the maximum return on investment. This means training the operator(s) on features of the machine, workflow and best practices. We feel that Welbound is best equipped to do this job - knowing their track record on training and after sales support".

K C Sanjeev, the Chairman and Managing Director of Welbound Worldwide feel that this partnership will be an important milestone in the Indian graphic art industry. "Here is an opportunity to introduce highly sophisticated cutting systems that increase efficiency far beyond the current levels. The task at hand is not small and will involve bringing in best practices, across all the links of logistics and workflow. The savings - in terms of less energy, low wastage and manpower can be tremendous."

Wohlenberg new generation guillotines are available in popular sizes of 76, 92, 115 and 132 cm. There are also special formats of 168 and 225 cm. These machines have been 'smartly engineered' to deliver high levels of efficiency and accuracy. "Full touch operations, large TFT display, facility to store more than 10000 programs, CIP4 compatibility and so on- the list of high end features is quite long. These features have made Wohlenberg a favorite with print companies that employ guillotines for high end applications" says Dinesh Ingawale of Welbound. Ingawale will lead a team of Welbound engineers who will go beyond merely installing these cutting systems. "We will try to provide a training program that will vastly improve the efficiency of paper handling and cutting".

The Wohlenberg cutting system consisting of a paper loader, jogger, 132 cm size guillotine and un-loader will be demonstrated during Welbound's open house from 17 November 2011 at Trivandrum. This is being organized at the side lines of the 1st National Book Printer's Conference. Sven Schubert of Wohlenberg, who is an authority on paper handling and cutting, will make a presentation on "how to increase efficiency; reduce costs and have happy employees"
