The London 2012 Olympics made sure that August was a month focused on speed, achievement and record breaking. The sponsors of BPIF’s Carton Conference, held at London’s Business Design Centre, will ensure that this will be a recurring theme at this October’s event.

The conference is supported by the world’s leading carton printing press manufacturers who will be demonstrating how their presses offer the fastest response. Neal Whipp, BPIF Carton’s General Manager, said, “In this instant age everything has to be completed ‘yesterday’ but digital is not the only option for converters facing ever more demanding schedules from brand owners and retailers.”

The three leading suppliers of litho carton printing presses:Heidelberg, KBA and Komori will all be exhibiting at the conference as will a number of new faces to the carton sector. Neal continues, “All the key press manufacturers have made huge strides in reducing make ready times so do you need a new process to be ultra responsive? Anyone that needs an answer to this question should come to the conference and engage with our machinery sponsors.”

At the conference, HP will focus on its new digital carton press which is expected to provide an effective solution for quick-response small-order quantities. Similarly, Presstek will be demonstrating how its new hybrid press, that combines both digital and waterless-offset print technology, will help to reduce product inventory and obsolescence. Visitors to the conference will also be able to discuss and compare the latest flexo-based fast response carton production technology from Edale. WH Leary will be showing how its new quality control systems can complement all print options at the fastest running speeds.

Matthew Peacock, Vision in Print, said, “I’ve been following the progress of digital carton production technology for some time. A digital solution may now complement existing equipment, and – crucially – offer enhanced flexibility to better serve the current and future needs of customers. If you are serious about investing in new carton production equipment it is essential you attend this event. An investment must be in the right fast-response packaging solution that will deliver tangible benefits to your customers.”

The Carton Conference enjoys a strong link with the easyFairs Packaging Innovations exhibition which immediately follows the conference. Neal went onto say, “This link basically means delegates get two worthwhile events under the same roof at the same time. Anyone wishing to attend can register their details on the website.”
