On 21st May, at the allocation of the EDP Awards, held in Monaco during FESPA Digital, Elitron’s Heleva feed system was nominated as “Best print support tool”.
Heleva is the latest result of Elitron’s RFA (Researching Full Automation) division – that was presented to the Italian market at the Viscom Italia 2013 – and is a great success for an Italian company, which with this technology officially enters into competition with the giants of digital printing.
Heleva is the “smart” sheet loader that is able to communicate and interface with the printer with maximum flexibility, also managing different materials. The machine, in fact, not only executes the load orders demanded by the printer, but can also transmit to the printer information concerning media ready for printing.
Giuseppe Gallucci, Managing Elitron, comments: «An acknowledgement, that of the EDP Awards, that comes at the right time because this year we are celebrating our thirtieth anniversary. And we are also happy to receive this nomination during FESPA, one of the most significant visual communication events, where we presented our latest finishing and print support systems. Heleva is the latest, and is the result of the Elitron philosophy: to provide integrated systems and not individual products».
