Graphic Repro On-line News to Friday 13 October 2017

Welcome to this week’s roundup of 28 news items. You’ll also find Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog on ‘LED Fever’, which looks at the steady increase in the switch to LED curing in digital printing. Then we have our second ValueDialog in Online Features, with an Andreas Weber exclusive interview with Heidelberg’s Chief Digital Officer, Dr Ulrich Hermann, at the International Motor Show #IAA2017 in Frankfurt not so long ago. Also in Online Features, Chapter 07, we have FLYERALARM, one of Germany’s largest online printers, with a another new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 145 large-format press, equipped with a new plate changer, enabling complete job changes in just two minutes, and full spectrum of other automation modules.

With both WAN Ifra’s WPE in Berlin, as well as The Print Show in Telford, the Frankfurt Book Fair, and Viscom Italia, you’ll find lots of interest. There are also several post-Labelexpo reports worth reading, as Labelexpo Europe 2017 culminated in its biggest-ever edition with record-breaking exhibitor and visitor figures this year, not to mention the debut of numerous machines and serious updates to label-related technology. You’ll also find a couple of pre-IPEX announcements, led by KAMA on Monday, for this much smaller and different kind of event, and a far cry from the hugely supported, well-attended international show it once became in its heyday at the NEC.

Tuesday saw Heidelberg lead the headlines with its ‘Heidelberg Industry’ premiere in Stuttgart with ‘Electric power for all’ as Heidelberg now offers its high-performance Wallbox for electric cars, debuted at the EVS30 show on Monday in southern Germany; while on Thursday, Heidelberg and the PIA took the lead, as the PIA announces two new White Papers which underscore Heidelberg’s approach with technology and automation to produce industry-leading productivity levels, thereby maximising profits for printers. Both are available to download from the PIA link in the article.

 

 

As usual, we have a good selection of recent sales and installations, kicked-off by HP at GI Solutions from Gareth Ward on Monday, as GI adds another HP T230 web press. This was followed by Muller Martini with a Pantera at Grafica Metelliana; along with Hybrid Software’s first order in Ireland on Monday. Tuesday saw Classic Graphics in North Carolina expand its operation with a new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 164 Hybrid UV press. On Wednesday, Financial Data Management added a five-colour Versafire digital press from Heidelberg UK. Thursday saw a new Koenig & Bauer Commander CL mark the 50th anniversary of Druck-und Pressehaus Naumann in Gelnhausen; while a third Muller Martini ProLiner inserting system was recently installed at Oppermann in Germany; and IFS with a Horizon and a three-side trimmer at Ashford Colour Press in Gos port.

On Friday, both Styria Media Group in Austria, and the Vorländer printing house in Germany, have opted for new Manroland Web e:line newspaper Colorman e:line and Geoman e:line systems; and last but not least, Koenig & Bauer with the latest and third Rapida 145 high-speed large-format sheetfed press at FLYERALARM in Gruessenheim, with a link to the main article in Online Features to accommodate more photographs.

The tailender on Friday gos to FFEI as it celebrates its 70th Anniversary. ‘We are very proud to be celebrating 70 years since the formation of Crosfield and 11 years since our MBO,’ said FFEI managing director Andy Cook, who also recently celebrated 30 years with FFEI. John Crosfield founded the original company in 1947.

That’s it from me until next time,
My best regards

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 05 October 2015

Welcome to another roundup of news highlights and Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 02 October, which this week highlights the fact that Ricoh, one of the biggest players in the graphic arts market, has maintained its place on the DJSI World Index for the third year running. They are considered the gold standard for sustainability and they are strict, with external audits, so they matter. Please don’t skip it. You’ll also find the official announcement from Ricoh South Africa in Thursday’s headlines. On Monday, Flint Group announced the publication of its Sustainability Report which you can download as a PDF. You will also find news from UPM and the Finnish Environment Institute on Wednesday.

News from Messe Düsseldorf in our drupa Newsroom this week, in both English and German, for drupa innovation park 2016: the heartbeat of innovation, where few areas at drupa 2016 (31 May to 10 June) will be so packed with innovations as Hall 7.0 — the home of the drupa innovation park in six themed areas. Please don’t miss it. 

There are new additions in Online Features Chapter 07 from Gallus; and from Adare with Esko; and also in the FESPA Newsroom for FESPA Eurasia which takes place from 10 – 13 December, in Istanbul.

News this week included pre-show announcements for WAN-IFRA and the World Publishing Conference in Hamburg, which opens its doors today, until Wednesday (5 – 7 October), with Kodak leading the headlines on Monday with its show focus, while Agfa Graphics provided more news on its showings on Thursday. There are pre-show announcements from Sawgrass for C!Print in Madrid this week; and Kornit Digital for ITMA in Milan in November. A couple related to InPrint in Munich in November also appear on Friday.

A large proportion of this week’s news obviously centred around Labelexpo which opened on Tuesday in Brussels. Gallus led the headlines on the opening day with the official global sales launch of its new DCS 340 digital press for the label printing market, followed by EFI with the first Jetrion 4950LX one-pass LED inkjet label press, and new Packaging Productivity Suite; Domino announced hybrid integration with AB Graphics’ Digicon 3; while MPS also launched its EF Symjet hybrid press integrated with Domino at the Brussels event; followed by HP Indigo, as it showcased a large number of portfolio advancements and continued customer adoption, which demonstrate growing digital market opportunity. Kodak led on Wednesday with its new high-performance Electra Max Thermal Plate which delivers improved performance, and at the same time helps reduce environmental impact; while Xeikon announced its new Fusion concept which it classes as a breakthrough technology, and Sun Chemical displayed new ink ran ges. But there’s so much more if you work through this week’s collection of 43 news items. I don’t have space to highlight them all.

There are numerous new developments (in addition to those announced at Labelexpo), including IFS with a new SmartSlitter from Horizon on Monday; and on Wednesday Ricoh launched an inline SquareBack booklet-making option in collaboration with Watkiss; also X-Rite on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Several key sales and installations include numerous recent successes for HP Indigo, which are included in its Labelexpo show announcement on Tuesday; then on Wednesday and beyond, Heidelberg UK with a Linoprint digital press and CTP at Pinstripe in Birmingham; SPGPrints at Adamtec in Spain; HP Indigo again at Lorge in France; more Linoprint digital from Heidelberg UK at Barclays in Leyton; Onyx software at KL Druck in Germany; and SPGPrints again at RAKO-Etiketten in Germany. We also have a number of Xeikon successes out of Labelexpo lined-up for this coming week.

As a tailender, don’t miss KBA, which led the headlines on Thursday with KBA Report No 47, available now to order or to download as a PDF in multiple languages from the link provided in the article. This latest issue showcases the relevance of print under the motto ‘Products, Practices, Perspectives’.

That’s it until next time. You’ll find so much more if you scroll down carefully.

My best regards,

Mike Hilton
