HP, Du Pont and others descend on Print Innovations

A number of well-known firms, including HP and Du Pont, will be demonstrating their products at next year’s Packaging Innovations show in Birmingham

The emphatic support from Hewlett Packard, BPIF Cartons, DuPont UK, IPIA, AMS, Friedheim, Esko, Fristan, the Duncan Print Group and Impression Technology Europe reflects the show’s success in just its second year, with these major names looking to benefit from the broad range of brands who visit the show.

Andrew Pearce, chief executive at IPIA, remarked: “We are delighted to be supporting the show once again. It provides a unique opportunity for the printing industry to meet with brand owners, retailers and marketers.

“Having a print event right at the heart of such a well established packaging show means that all those involved in packaging have the chance to embrace the very latest print developments. That’s why the association urges all its members to get involved.”

Print Innovations showcases the latest technologies and concepts to achieve quick turnaround, brand differentiation and time-acceleration to market, and is co-located with Packaging Innovations, Packtech, Contract Pack, Ecopack and, new for 2013, Labelling Innovations.

Paul Bates, Esko business manager for UK & Eire, said: “Esko has been involved with easyFairs’ packaging show since inception because of the high quality visitors it attracts, which has been essential in enabling us to create and foster rewarding long term partnerships.

“It also attracts all the different stakeholders within the packaging chain from concept to shelf, which is great for Esko as our products are utilised in all these areas. Those factors, combined with the central location, ease of access and facilities at the NEC, make it a rewarding show for us and our customers to attend.”

Esko’s (stand E4) emphasis at this year’s show will be on Color Engine 12 and its integration with PantoneLIVE.  Color Engine 12 provides packaging and label professionals with an integrated solution for accurate colour reproduction. It builds on spectral data to define ink profiles and effectively manages spot colours, as well as creating and managing multi-ink profiles, crucial for colour accurate extended gamut printing and digital printing.

Impression Technology Europe (stand B9) will debut in the UK the new Eclipse LF3 digital label cutter and slitter, which handles intricate cutting and slitting to a fine specification. Its current pairing it with the compact Rapid X1 ensures that this complete label production platform is also space-efficient.

Roy Burton, managing director at Impression Technology Europe, said: “We see Packaging Innovations and Print Innovations as a fantastic opportunity to meet new potential customers. We could not be happier that we have chosen to exhibit once again at the NEC show, especially having the new Eclipse LF3, and look forward to a fantastic show.”

Leading mailing and packaging equipment supplier AMS (stand B22) will be launching the M1C Labelmaxer, a short-run desktop digital colour label printer; the latest addition to its product line.
