Mike Hilton’s Global News Review: Mouvent AG as a shooting star at LABELEXPO 2017

Value Publishing Mike Hilton LabelExpo 2017.001

Graphic Repro On-line News to Friday 29 September 2017

Welcome to this week’s roundup of 33 news items, obviously boosted by Labelexpo Europe in Brussels. You’ll also find Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog which this week explains why UL Greenguard Certification is Important. Please don’t miss it. You’ll find it in our Verdigris environmental section, along with another 34 Bogs from this year alone.

Labelexpo News has obviously dominated this week, as the largest specialist event to date opened its doors from Monday to Thursday in Brussels. New kit abounds and sales successes have made the headlines every single day, including a number of world-firsts and country-firsts, so I shall leave you to work your way through the announcements, as Bobst and also Bobst with Mouvent, BST Eltromat, Gallus, Screen, and Screen with Prati, Xeikon, Domino, EFI, Esko, Fujifilm, Toray, UPM, X-Rite and Xeikon all made the headlines – some of them on multiple occasions.

There are also a couple of noteworthy non-Labelexpo sales from Heidelberg UK to Spectrum in Wales on Thursday for a Speedmaster CX 75; and Xerox with Bytes in South Africa to Lightning Printers in Port Shepstone on Friday with a new Versant 80.

Canon South Africa took the lead on Friday, following its successful showing at FESPA Africa, coupled with an award for its stand at the event.

This week’s tailender goes to Epson, as it announced its new flagship dye-sublimation inkjet textile printer – among the headlines on Tuesday.

That’s it from me until next time,

My best regards

Mike Hilton
