Looking back at drupa2016 and looking toward the future !
As we leave drupa2016 behind us and start looking forward to the next major event in Chicago mid-September, we first say a big “THANK YOU” to the hundreds of visitors who checked in at the Prati booth, where they discovered the Saturn OMNIA, and saw it in action. Numerous visitors from north-eastern Europe, Russia as well as the Middle East, where IML labels are booming, appreciated the machine’s exceptional versatility and flexible modular concept. Amongst those CONGRATULATIONS go to our valued global customers, who confirmed their preference for the Saturn OMNIA, during the show and soon after it. Last but not least special THANKS to our loyal partners who were present at our booth and in particular to the ones who stayed with us from start to finish: AP Graphique (France), Jet Technologies (Indonesia), Maquinaria Esagraf (Spain), Nilpeter GmbH (Austria, Germany, Switzerland) and Printech ME (GCC countries).
Success of the OMNIA is confirmed by fast-moving market trends
An extremely vibrant edition of this trade show points toward a rapidly evolving market. In fact, judging by illustrious speakers at the Düsseldorf event, label finishing has become the highest added value component of the printing and post-printing process. Further evidence for fast-moving trends came from topics discussed even more recently at FINAT in Amsterdam where it was remarked that over 20% of today’s converters offer at least one non-adhesive label type, such as IML, flexible packaging or shrink material (source: FINAT/Panteia).
DIGIFAST ONE the star of Open Days
Huge interest was shown for our digital finishing platform during the Open Days initiative which came to an end a week ago. Customers and visitors at our Faenza factory witnessed the performance levels reached by the equipment, in terms of speed and precision. Above all, the impact DIGIFAST ONE has on savings became evident with a few mathematical calculations at hand. Job changeover is as fast as 8 minutes and waste material is kept to no more than 18 metres per job! Discover more in the next web news…
