Sakurai wraps-up a successful 3-day run at SGIA in New Orleans
Despite the threats of hurricane Nate, a torrential downpour during show set-up, travel issues and confetti falling onto its screen press line during the first day - presumably from a previous Mardi Gras held in the convention center, Sakurai had a very good SGIA experience.
“We were pleased with high level of interest in our line up of Sakurai cylinder screen presses and industry partner Natgraph’s Smart UV drying technology at this year’s SGIA,” said David Rose Vice President, Sakurai USA, Inc. “We recorded an impressive number of qualified leads and wrote orders on the show floor, announcing the sale of Sakurai’s newest screen press, an MS-102AX, first introduced at PRINT 17 to Roeda Signs.

At SGIA, live demonstrations drew visitors to the Sakurai exhibit to see our featured Sakurai MS-80All screen press equipped with a Natgraph Electronic UV dryer and stacker an our new Sakurai rotary die-cutter. Sakurai’s demos included running an offset produced presentation folder and enhancing it with two impressions of screen printing a metallic glitter and a raised UV spot coat on the MS-80All screen press and then die-cutting along with an interesting form of small boxes on the Sakurai OL-66RCS die-cutter.
Sakurai has already reserved a larger, 1,000 sq. ft. space at next year’s SGIA, October 18-20, 2018 in Las Vegas.
