“We’re thrilled to enter a strategic alliance with JB Machinery, and offer our customers this unique hybrid solution for the GraphiVac technology,” said Greg Jones, Sales and Marketing Director of Sun Automation Group. “JBM’s reputation for superior products and world-class customer service aligns perfectly with Sun’s corporate values and customer-centric approach.” The single-source solution powered by Sun and JB’s proven technology provides faster drying for maximum speed and efficiency. GraphiVac maximizes production and finishing speeds on all substrates. The hybrid technology also provides improved print quality and finishing, as well as improved uptime and safety, while reducing overall waste, said the company. “The GraphiVac is a perfectly packaged solution that’s simply the most cost-effective way to increase performance on any existing rotary die cutter or flexo folder/gluer,” said Warren Bird, President of JB Machinery. “We have a long history and a great working relationship with our friends at Sun.
