Virtual Canvas Production Experience

MHP Technology, the leading manufacturer of canvas stretching and frame assembly machines from Berlin, announces its participation at the SDUK Sign & Digital UK trade show at the NEC Birmingham, March 22-24, 2022.

MHP will feature its Virtual Reality – VR Production Experience for a deep dive into MHP’s frame assembly and canvas stretching machines. The captured processes highlight workflow optimization while embracing new products and manufacturing challenges. The VR experience transports the viewer directly into the production for a real-time, authentic experience.

MHP will also feature its Canvas Drumkit! MHP’s canvas stretching technology is known for its drum-tight stretch and perfect artist quality. To test and prove this point, MHP has constructed a drumkit made of stretched canvas. This extreme test is a fun and interactive demonstration of the canvas tension producers can expect with MHP stretching machines.

SDUK visitors are welcome to try out both the VR Production Experience and play drums on the Canvas Drumkit. The MHP team looks forward to meeting with visitors and discuss new product ideas for canvas as well as automation opportunities ahead.
