InPrint: The Power of Specialisation

Time starved professionals need fast access to the right information in the right rime. This is where InPrint provides real value: Firstly, it is a unique and completely new show with a very specialised profile. Secondly, it emerges at a time where its focus on industrial printing is highly relevant for the transforming manufacturing sector:

Digitisation coupled with recession means that markets and media are fragmenting and morphing more quickly and continually. Technological change, driven by product and manufacturing innovation and supported by the German government’s “Industrie 4.0” initiative, rapidly increases the demand for both screen printing and industrial digital inkjet printing technology. InPrint is designed purely for these evolving fields giving visitors access to the most cutting edge technologies available for speciality, screen, digital, inkjet and 3D printing.

The InPrint White Paper 2015 outlines the key factors for growth in industrial print, particularly in Europe. Key topics include the rise of localisation, the importance of speed to market and the smart consumer. These conditions ask for specialised technology, business, component and information source.

The success of InPrint 2014 is proof that this high level of specialisation needed its own event to connect the previously unconnected and to demonstrate the impact on efficiency in industrial manufacture when transforming default processes by introducing new printing technologies. With this year’s show being over 50% larger in terms of exhibition space and showcasing 150 exhibitors, including 60 new exhibiting companies, the event continues to grow due to the fact that manufacturing is changing and smart technology and expertise is needed to meet the needs of this most demanding of industries.

Embrace change! See you at InPrint 2015!

News from the Industry

For Heidelberg the Future of Industrial Inkjet is Taking Shape

Excerpts from a recent interview with Jason Oliver, Senior Vice President Heidelberg Digital:

The focus for Heidelberg at InPrint 2015 is on 4D Printing – what is this?

“4D printing onto objects, shapes and curved surfaces. This can certainly be used within the packaging sector for direct to cylinder decoration, but we also see exciting potential within automotive and fashion production. Our focus at InPrint is to show the possibilities that the technology is capable of producing and the potential is incredibly exciting.”

When do you see a tipping point for direct to shape printing for packaging?

“The interest is really high and the potential is huge but we have not yet reached the tipping point. The reason for this is mainly as the people who will make the decisions need to see the technology being implemented into the line and feel confident it is not going to disrupt production and cause problems. (...)"

Has the famous Coke ‘name’ label campaign helped at all in regards to educating marketers of the potential of digital print?

“(...) The results for Coke were outstanding. They had a 30% increase in sales! When you think that a campaign would be celebrated with a 1 or 2% increase in sales, the result generated by this campaign was certainly worth the risk they took to make it happen. The same kind of thing will need to happen with direct to shape inkjet printing in order for this to be adopted on a wider basis. As I keep saying I think this tipping point will be reached sooner rather than later, but we really need shows like InPrint to effectively highlight the possibilities to the wider world so that pioneers get inspired and the technology gets used and the world can see what is possible.”

Tell me more about 4D potential in automotive and fashion?

“The potential for 4D inkjet along with robotics is considerable as you can make real one-offs. Take for example a motorcycle helmet. You can personalise this within around 20-30 seconds! I can see retailers creating new personalised solutions for their customers helping them to distinguish the products they buy but also helping the manufacturer create a unique service.”

This is very novel but how is this scalable? The ability to mass customise products, surely is more commercially compelling from a manufacturer’s perspective?

“Yes mass customisation is quite different to personalisation and inkjet could play a big role in this too. Heidelberg sees great potential within the fashion sector. (...) It is this segment of the population that will be driving demand for inkjet certainly in fashion as they are the people that are true early adopters. (...) So inkjet can help these companies create products quickly and adapt them when the need arises. (...)"

Palis Honored as one of Germany’s Most Innovative SMEs

Palis (PadaLuma Ink-Jet-Solutions GmbH & Co. KG) is honoured as one of Germany’s most innovative SMEs at the German SME Summit in Essen on 26 June.

The Markt Erlbach-based company joins an exclusive group of prizewinners stretching back over more than 20 years as Top 100 mentor Ranga Yogeshwar awards it the Top 100 seal of approval. The award to Palis is the outcome of a two-stage analytical procedure by a team of research scientists.

PadaLuma Ink-Jet-Solutions GmbH & Co. KG was one of the first companies in the world to develop and produce digital ink-jet printers for industrial production processes. These print solutions enable patterns to be printed extremely rapidly on a wide range of surfaces up to 2.25m wide that are then processed to make flooring, furniture fronts or packaging.

The company, which was established in 2009 and is based in Markt Erlbach, Bavaria, took a traditional approach to innovation when developing its technology. It found a new area of application for a rarely used process (single-pass printing) that was familiar to specialists but only used for very narrow products. Palis developed new patented technologies and proved that it is possible to use environmentally friendly inks for industrial single-pass decorative printing. Its concept of modular units, scalable sizes and robust, industrial construction created a unique selling proposition for variable production runs. As a result, customers have the flexibility to produce even small batch sizes quickly and cost-effectively.

Palis combines equipment and data technology with automation, perfect systems integration and print process management, so it is well prepared for Industry 4.0 requirements.

The pioneer and innovation driver at Palis is its managing director Patrik Lutz. “We combine courage, versatility and creativity with responsiveness and great ambitions for our solutions. Innovation thrives in this climate”, declares managing director Patrik Lutz. “We foster a culture of respect and appreciation for every single employee. This culture makes it possible for staff to perform well and in this environment they are able to make optimum progress. Winning the Top 100 award reflects the achievements of my employees and all of our suppliers. I am extremely grateful to them for their hard work.”

The Top 100 accolade is awarded on the basis of a two-stage analysis developed by Nikolaus Franke, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, and his team. The research scientists use more than 100 parameters in five separate categories to investigate how SMEs manage and generate successful innovations. The decision as to which companies ultimately receive the Top 100 award lies exclusively with the academic coordinators of the project.

Eurolaser: New Robotic Solutions for Laser Cutters

At this year's InPrint, Canon and eurolaser will be presenting new ideas for print & cut workflow. The focus on their joint stand is on the whole process, from digital printing through print finishing to precise cutting.

At the trade show, eurolaser will stage the first ever demonstration of its new robot system for laser system placement. This new development represents yet another building block in eurolaser's automation strategy. The expandability of the laser systems has always been of major importance in developments. The new models are again based on a modular design, so that users can always be offered the right solution for their specific applications. Naturally, the new robot follows this principle. When combined with the automatic shuttle table system, this enables viable and flexible automation of processing. Laser cutting of printed materials will be demonstrated using a M-800 laser cutter.

The centrepiece of the joint stand is a Canon Océ Arizona flatbed printer with UV curable inks. Both functional and decorative applications will be shown, all of which are already being used successfully today.

In addition, eurolaser will present the capabilities of laser cutters when cutting printed membrane switches at the co-located productronica show.

Hymmen Digital Printing Lines: Another Order from Classen for Production Site in Baruth

Classen continues to count on Hymmen Digital Printing technology: After increasing the production in Kaisersesch to three Digital Printing Lines, Hymmen will mount another line at the Classen site in Baruth. Altogether, the Classen-group uses five Digital Printing Lines from Hymmen for the flooring production.

Classen is so successful with its innovative digital laminate and design flooring decors that the flooring manufacturer has decided go on with the enlargement of capacities. At the Classen-production site Baruth, close to Berlin, an Industrial Digital Printing Line from Hymmen – model JPT-C 2100 – produces flooring boards in Single Pass for two years by now, in 2014 nearly 7 million sqm altogether.

With the second structurally identical production line, Classen will more than double its capacities. On the production line, that is 45 meters long altogether and 18 meters wide, boards can be digitally printed on a maximal width of 2,040 mm. With a production speed of 25 m/min, you can reach a production capacity of up to 50,000 sqm in 24 hours. The striven production capacity is more than 10 million sqm per year.

The complete line consists of feeding, cleaning, justification and supplying the boards to the digital printer, the digital printer itself, UV-curing, inspection-area incl. paternoster and stacking. It will be get up and running in the second half of 2015 right beside the other Digital Printing Line at Classen in Baruth.

Marabu: Label and Direct Printing Inks for Packaging Decoration

Marabu produces high-quality, efficient and tailor-made screen and digital printing inks for packaging decoration.

Marabu offers advanced label and direct printing solutions for the cosmetic, food, and pharmaceutical industries. This includes its well-established ink series for rotary and flatbed screen printing along with screen printed 3-D metallic effects or digitally printed metallic shades with the new Mara® Jet DI-SX Plug&Print inkjet ink for the EcoSolMax 2 generation of Roland printers.

High-quality no-label-look with rotary label printing or flexo printing machines: Product packaging needs high-class labeling for decoration, inscription, or designation. Ultra RotaScreen UVRS has been developed for all common rotary label printing machines and is suited for combination printing with UV letterpress and UV offset. It can also be combined with UV flexo printing. The ink is silicone-free which ensures the compatibility with the overprinted UV flexo ink system. Both inks series are printable on common label materials such as coated or Corona-pre-treated PE/PP foils, coated PET foils, PVC, and self-adhesive foils and papers.

Stylishly matt or high–gloss inks for flatbed label printing: Ultra Pack UVC features high-gloss colour shades. It adheres well on pre-treated PE/PP, rigid PVC, PETG and PETA, PC as well as PS. The ink series is highly reactive and suited for the ennobling of roll-to-roll labels on flatbed screen printing machines. Ultra Star-M UVSM features matt colour shades for stylishly noble product designs. It is used for flatbed label printing, and is suitable for printing onto various substrates such as PVC, pre-treated self-adhesive PE and PP films, polyester films, polystyrene, polycarbonate, rigid PVC, paper, and cardboard.

Braille varnish for rotary and flatbed screen printing: An extremely high ink deposit with sharp-edged definition is the main criteria for braille varnish, because blind and partially sighted people rely on a clear and unmistakable product marking. The very high ink deposit with constant ink film thickness of Marabu’s braille varnish UVLB 1 and 2 guarantee best tactual results. UVLB 1 is suitable especially for rotary screen printing with stencils from Gallus and StorkScreens, while UVLB 2 is a universal braille varnish for flatbed screen printing machines.

LED-curable screen printing ink for tubes and containers: The new Ultra Pack LEDC is a LED-curable screen printing ink designed with special focus on adhesion, opacity, degree of gloss, and reactivity. It is suitable for container printing and flatbed label applications. The good opacity works especially for full area prints or text. In addition to Ultracolor basic shades, high opaque shades and opaque white, the LEDC series include a silicone-free opaque white 171 for perfect flexo overprintability. Its modern rheology and viscosity allow excellent printability and easy handling. Thanks to its specific UV-LED formulation Ultra Pack LEDC screen printing ink allows conventional UV curing or LED curing without additional post curing. Thereby, a more flexible management of the print process is possible.

Inkjet metallic shades with liquid coating protection: For digitally printed metallic effects, Marabu will present its new solvent-based Mara® Jet DI-SX Plug&Print inkjet ink for the EcoSolMax 2 generation of Roland printers. DI-SX is suited for fast printing speeds and roll-to-roll print jobs. The high-grade pigmented ink system provides lots of different silver, gold, bronze and other pearlescent metallic effects as well as a nickel-free yellow and Light Black. In combination with the glossy water-based Mara® Shield WA-FXG liquid coatings the digitally printed metallic effects are fully resistant to abrasion. Mara® Shield WA-FXG can either be applied automatically by roller coater or manually using a roller, spray gun, or other applicators.

Digital direct printing onto glass or PET bottles: Inkjet printing directly onto PET or glass bottles opens the door to completely new possibilities in packaging designs. Depending on the system configuration, it is possible to complete smaller custom jobs or large-volume production runs at very high speeds.

Upcoming regulations: So-called "low-migration inks” are required and used for the decoration of food packaging. They are supposed to minimise the risk of components migrating from the UV-cured ink film into the foodstuff. Being aware of the responsibility as an ink manufacturer, Marabu will meet legal requirements with its packaging inks and will present a new ink system this autumn.
