Graphic Repro On-line News Review to Friday 10 February 2017

Welcome to this week’s news roundup of another 25 of the best received over the past seven days, along with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Environmental Blog which this week is centred around Kodak’s Plate Green Leaf Awards for 2016, which also has a slot in Monday’s headlines with a list of winners – that includes South Africa. There’s also a new addition to the Wild Format Technology Guides section, with No 20 in the current series from Sophie-Matthews Paul.

It’s been a good week for news of a totally mixed bag which included both Sappi’s first quarter financial results on Wednesday; and Heidelberg’s third quarter report on Thursday, and tuckedaway in Heidelberg’s results is this elaboration of future plans from CEO Rainer Hundsdörfer, as Heidelberg realigns its organisation to accelerate the company’s digital transformation and thus ensure the correct business models are in place for the high-growth customer segments in the years ahead. In future, there will be a division that will develop, manufacture, and supply appropriate digital technologies and products for new business models. Another division will devise and market these models. Furthermore, th e global sales and service network will be more strongly focused on the digital challenges that customers face.

‘Heidelberg goes digital. We are getting the company fit for the digital future,’ adds Hundsdörfer. ‘To do that, we will develop and roll out our own innovative business ideas. However, we will also be strengthening our position in this area through acquisitions.’


Selection of Twitter screenshots to document excellent awareness: Thousands of impressions created via Value Publishing’s Social Media activities reporting in real-time on the #Heideldruck’s analyst meeting last Thursday.

Sappi also announced a range of current projects for both Europe and the United States, but in a separate article which leads the headlines on Friday, with comments from Sappi Europe CEO Berry Wiersum and Sappi Limited CEO Steve Binnie. All three articles shouldn’t be skipped if you want to keep yourself abreast of what’s going on in the industry.

If you check out this week’s headlines you will also find announcements related to the upcoming Hunkeler Innovationdays in Switzerland from Heidelberg; for Dscoop at Ipex in the UK; for Xeikon Café Packaging Innovations 2017 in Belgium; and European Sign Expo 2017 in Germany. There are some superb recent sales and installations this week, led by Xerox in Cape Town on Monday at The Print Place; Ricoh with its 2000th Ricoh Pro C7100 colour cut sheet press at Ligurgaf in Italy, and Polar at Truyol in Spain on Tuesday; Fujifilm at NWN in Wales and GSE at ACW in Germany on Wednesday; while Thursday saw Heidelberg’s first Primefire 106 B1 digital printing system at MPS in Obersulm in Germany begin its pilot phase, also marking the market launch of this new digital press powered by Fujifilm, which debuted at drupa last year. Remaining with MPS and also with Heidelberg, but in Kilbride, Scotland, which is to install the world’s first 18-unit XL 106 extra long packaging press next month for full commissioning by mid-year. Finally, an HP Indigo 5900 for firm 6 Colour Digital in St Helens, UK, completes this week’s lineup.
Please check out the rest carefully, as there are important announcements from Komori and Screen on workflow; from X-Rite and South Africa’s Digital View on service, and lots more.

The tailender this week goes to Canon South Africa for its 2017 South African Disabled Golf Open – to be held from 15 – 17 May in Cape Town – in the headlines on both Monday and Thursday.


That’s it until next time. Do have a good week ahead.
My best regards, 
Mike Hilton

ValuePublishing drupa Cube Mike Review 02052016.001

Graphic Repro On-line News Review to Friday 29 April 2016

Welcome to another roundup of news highlights for the past week, together with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog on Friday, which this week highlights green initiatives, and in particular, the very robust sustainable products program launched by Ricoh. The program evaluates the environmental performance and usability of Ricoh products against various, as yet unspecified, standards. It’s worth reading about, and is the latest addition to Ricoh’s environmental impact reduction strategy, which has been in place for many years.

What else is new this week? You’ll find Sappi in Online Features Chapter 02 with its very latest development designed to innovate high quality and upmarket flexible packaging, accompanied by some stunning pictures.

In our drupa Newsroom this week we have another 18 pre-show announcements from exhibitors, as well as the full programme announcement in English and German from Messe Dusseldorf for drupa cube 2016, which will provide both inspiration and innovation in some 60 keynotes, panel discussions and presentations from international experts. In the full programme PDF, which can be downloaded, there are introductions for the eight different categories of presentation followed by simple-to-refer-to charts for the dates and times, followed by introductions to each of the keynote speakers. You can simply download the full programme as a PDF, to study and refer to at your leisure. The links are provided in the article.

Exhibitors’ announcements this week come from KBA, WEKO, Tecnau, Manroland Web, PrintCity, SEI Laser, Toshiba TEC, Dalim Software, Fraser Anti-Static, DW Renzmann, Leonhard Kurz, ThermoFlexX, Agfa Graphics, CP Bourg, Watkiss and Challenge, Digital Information, DuPont Advanced Printing, and Pitney Bowes. You will find the earlier articles of the 156 pre-show exhibitor announcements thus far, have now been resorted alphabetically to make it easier for you to refer to or search when you scroll down. And if you need a reminder, there are now just 28 days to go before the big one opens its doors on Tuesday 31 May.

News headlines this week include UPM’s Interim Report on Tuesday; KBA Report No 48 – the company’s popular customer magazine which can be ordered or downloaded from the KBA Website – and as can be expected, it focuses entirely on drupa.

Recent sales and installations this week came from Muller Martini on Tuesday with a major installation in Bosnia. On Wednesday at Traderplus in South Africa as it expands further with new presses from IIJ; and then from Screen Europe with its latest Truepress Jet label press at SEIC in France; and EFI Vutek at Allprint Display in the UK. On Thursday, Flint Group Flexographic, and also Rotocontrol, both in Germany; IFS with Horizon in the UK; and the very first EFI Vutek FabriVU 340 soft signage printer in the UK. To round off the week on Friday, we have Fujifilm in the UK; and lastly Stahlfolder in North America for small-format.

That’s it until next time. I hope you find more of interest among the links below.
With my best regards,
Mike Hilton

Graphic Repro On-line News Review to Friday 22 April 2016

Welcome to another roundup of news highlights for the past week, together with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog on Friday, which this week asks a question about ISO14001. There are also three new additions in Online Fetures Chapters 02 and 04. In Chapter 02 the article from EFI at ISA this past week highlights four new machines, each described in detail and illustrated, which were launched at the show in Orlando. Chapter 04 includes two new articles from Esko with Flexo at Uniprint in Durban; South Africa, and also Toray with waterless for CDs, DVDs and more at Cinram in Aachen, Germany.

In our drupa Newsroom you can really have a field-day. There’s another extensive interview in the drupa ante portas section with BW Papersystems’ Patrick Walczak, by Andreas Weber; this is accompanied by 19 new additions to our Exhibitor section led by Manroland Sheetfed, together with ContiTech, DW Renzmann, Baumer, Siegwerk, Steinemann, Muller and Kern-ICM; FUTEC, EyeC, Theurer, Xitron, BST Eltromat, Muller Martini, Leonhard Kurz, Mimaki, KAMA, Creative Edge, Massivit 3D, and Hunkeler Systeme. You will find lots of exciting new kit to be launched at the show among most of them.

Bild PR_2016-03-02_BW_Papersystems_at_drupa_2016_graphic

These latest additions now bring news from exhibitors for the upcoming event to 138, plus a further 55 from Messe Düsseldorf, as well as 10 specialist features from key industry journalists; and of course a further 7 in the drupa ante portas section. 210 in total, and with more to come in the 35 days left before this year’s biggest event for the industry opens its doors in Düsseldorf, from 31 May until 10 June.

News leaders from Monday to Friday this week were Leonard Kurz with a new technology to be shown and demonstrated at drupa for precisely positioning holographic single-image designs; then from Sappi Europe, as it strengthens its Packaging and Speciality Papers business in Alfeld, Germany; Agfa Graphics with its latest award; EFI with record First Quarter revenue; and lastly Manroland Sheetfed with its trailblazer line-up for drupa. Another key announcement also came from the Ghent Workgroup on Thursday, but there are just too many other important items to list all of them, so please scroll down carefully and find them for yourself. You’ll discover a number of exciting new software releases as well.

You will, as usual, find a number of key sales and installations successes again this week, with the biggest from Kraft-Schloetels, a member of WKS Druckholding in Germany, on Tuesday, which has ordered a second 160-page high volume Lithoman web offset press from Manroland Web Systems. On Wednesday from Heidelberg, as Villanti in Vermont installs a new Heidelberg XL 106-6+L with Prinect Image Control Next Generation; amd at Sign & Digital UK, when The Handsome Prints Company signed for a Mimaki JFX200-2513UV wide-format flatbed on the first day of the show.

Thursday saw Hybrid Software celebrating the installation of the 400th seat of PACKZ at Z Due in Italy; while Friday turned out to be a fitting end to a busy week with Philtone Litho in the UK set upgrade one of its presses to a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106-5+L in July, to match an existing XL 106-4+L; then we have Glossop Cartons which has just installed the world’s first Highcon Beam digital cutting and creasing machine; and these were followed by Gallus, which announced two more sales of the new Gallus Labelfire digital label printing system in Switzerland and in Europe, although it failed to identify the customers.

The tailender this week goes to Bytes Document Systems and Xerox, which announced the launch of the iGen 5 in South Africa, on Tuesday. 

That’s it until next time. I hope you find lots more of interest among the links below.
With my best regards, 

Mike Hilton
