Heidelberg Holds 4th International Packaging Days
WIESLOCH-WALLDORF, GERMANY—07/09/10—Large numbers of customers from across the globe met at the 4th International Packaging Days staged by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) at the end of June 2010 in Germany to get the latest information on innovations in industrial packaging printing.
During the two-day event at the Print Media Center in Hall 11 of the Wiesloch-Walldorf plant, the international visitors saw for themselves a fully-integrated packaging production workflow – from data preparation and plate production to printing, die-cutting, and folding-carton gluing. The entire portfolio and the individual process steps were explained in detail. At the end of the process, Heidelberg experts analyzed the actual production data live in front of the visitors.
Customers from 18 countries gathered extensive information on the Heidelberg solution portfolio for packaging printing.
The customers were split into several groups — with translation into the relevant languages — and guided through the presentations and product demonstrations. Heidelberg product specialists were on hand at all times to answer questions and take part in discussions on specific solutions for individual companies.
Highlights included the special applications on the Speedmaster XL 105 Duo and the Speedmaster XL 75 FoilStar, followed by product demonstrations on the Suprasetter 162, Dymatrix 106 Pro CSB, and Diana X 115. The participants were also impressed with the live production of folding cartons on the Speedmaster XL 105-6 with coating unit.
Participating customers came from Australia, Belgium, Spain, Norway, the United States, Denmark, Italy, Korea, Hungary, France, Russia, Mexico, Austria, Sweden, Uruguay, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
