Successful drupa for W&H
Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H), a specialist in machinery for manufacturing flexible packaging, drew a very positive conclusion from drupa 2016. Several thousand attendees visited W&H and subsidiary GARANT at the show; approx. 800 visitors travelled to the in-house EXPO at company headquarters in Lengerich, and order intake reached into the high eight figure range. “At drupa, our fingers were firmly on the pulse with our slogan ‘PACKAGING 4.0’. We used our new presses, the MIRAFLEX II C and the DYNASTAR, as a platform to demonstrate how intelligent machines, integrated processes and intuitive handling are already increasing the efficiency of traditional flexographic and gravure printing,” explains Dr. Jürgen Vutz, Chairman of the Board at W&H.
With the start of the drupa W&H reveals the innovations presented: With the DYNASTAR the company launches a new-generation gravure printing machine specially developed for short print runs even under 3,000 meters. The new flexographic press MIRAFLEX˝ C impresses with an optimized machine design and multiple innovations for higher efficiency. The new integrated assistance modules VISION promise to increase the machine intelligence and to provide maximum control for the operator. Presented are these innovations under the company’s trade fair slogan “PACKAGING 4.0 ‒ intelligent, integrated and intuitive” on more than 1,000 m2 booth of W&H and its subsidiary GARANT in hall 15.
As an innovative engineering company and market leader in the flexible packaging industry, W&H is always looking for qualified employees who are enthusiastic and would like to help shape the future of the company.
