"Highly topical and relevant" - First Technology Event for Package Printing
At the first technology event of the W&H Academy in November 2018, 30 customers and partners informed themselves about current market developments and possibilities for optimizing production for package printing in flexo and gravure printing. Theoretical aspects were demonstrated practically live on the presses in the printing technology center. Further events are already planned.
Optimum printing results in the shortest possible time at the lowest possible cost - that is the goal of every packaging printer. With its technology events, W&H offers a format in which the practical challenges of packaging printing, the strengths of the individual processes and the practical consequences for everyday production are discussed. In November, the event covered a wide range of topics, from today's requirements of brand manufacturers to technical topics such as residual solvent...
W&H develops digital printing machine for flexible packaging
While digital printing is already firmly established in the label and commercial printing sector, flexible packaging continues to be a challenge: An economical and stable digital printing process has yet to be developed. W&H, machine builder and specialist for flexible packaging, has reached a first milestone in its development project with a machine concept for a new digital printing machine. Now the technology leader starts onboarding partners, including leading inkjet printhead manufacturer Xaar. The digital printing machine from W&H is based on piezo inkjet technology.
"We see a need in the flexible packaging market to use digital printing in addition to the established processes. This is driven by the need for faster time-to-market and very short order lengths," explains Dr. Jürgen Vutz, CEO of W&H. "However, the application of flexible packaging has very special requirements, for example regarding the adhesion of the ink to the film. As specialists in this market, we bring expert knowledge to offer answers to these challenges. First, by continuously...
