Print4All Conference – the yearly event for the printing and converting industry – is fast approaching. Starting Wednesday, January 16th it is possible to reserve your seat at the event scheduled on March 21st and 22nd at Fiera Milano by going to conference.print4all.it.
Among the many sessions in the event programme are four thematic round tables on “The Future of…” discussing the most promising development directions for the industry, as well as a session focusing on technologies 4.0, which are currently revolutionizing the industry of printing machines. Print4All Conference gathers the entire industry community, from printers to brand owners, while providing opportunities for discussion and business. The event brings together technology producers, users and the creatives designing those technologies, and for this reason it is a unique chance to listen to the entire industry, come up with new ideas, anticipate needs and collect information.
The event will also feature the participation of representatives and buyers from leading European countries as well as Israel, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Algeria, USA and India.
Print4All Conference is organized by Acimga (the Italian Manufacturers Association of Machinery for the Graphic, Converting and Paper Industry) and Argi (the National Association of Graphic Industry Suppliers) with the support of ITA Agency (formerly ICE) and Fiera Milano. It enjoys the patronage of the most important trade associations, which will contribute their competence to add value and depth to the discussion: AIMSC, Assocarta, Assografici, ENIPG, ESMA, the Graphic and Paper Federation, the Italian Packaging Institute.
Print4All Conference is the yearly event taking stock of the industry and leading up to the great three-yearly exhibition Print4All set to take place in Milan in 2021.
Main Sponsors – Uteco and OMET
The two well-known Italian manufacturers of printing and converting machines, ambassadors of Italian design and manufacturing excellence on the international scene, once again confirm their support and adherence to the Prit4All formula, renewing their sponsorship of the print supply chain event.
This year, in fact, both companies renew their confidence in the innovative formula that inspires the new B2B fair of the sector and the related corollary of events that precede and follow it in order to give continuity to the relationship with the global market. This includes their proactive commitment to the more general marketing and communication project and the way they handle relations with customers, suppliers and the entire flexible packaging and paper converting, labeling and tissue supply chain. This is witnessed by the latest initiatives implemented at various levels by the two flagship Italian “pocket multinationals”.
OMET, first actor in the narrow web, advanced front of the flexo and a “visionary” forerunner of the hybrid machine concept (currently spotlighted as a fast growing market segment), as well as the leading actor in the tissue sector (the recent partnership with OT further expands its offer and production capacity.) is these days making a name for itself for the good results of the partnership with Durst, thanks to which it integrates digital printing functions in its portfolio of services. Scheduled for the next 24 and 25 January the open house dedicated to the presentation of the OMET Xjet hybridized with Durst digital technology, with the participation of Ritrama (author of a small revolution called linerless) and Italgrafica Sistemi as user-testimonial of the new machine. The event, which will be held in the new OMET Drome at Molteno, represents the latest stage of development (in order of time) of a company featuring a great market sensitivity, which can read the initial signs of future orientations under incubation, and the excellence of R&D technicians.
Uteco, brand renowned all over the world, which oversees the global market from its headquarters in Verona and its US subsidiary, over the years has accelerated its commitment towards a complete offer of state-of-the-art printing and processing technologies. Today, its portfolio includes flexo and roto, roto-offset and digital machines, as well as laminators and spreaders for a rapidly developing hi-tech market. The significant financial transaction of last July, which linked it to the private equity fund NB Renaissance, also opens a new phase of development along external lines, a prelude to a further “qualitative leap”.The growth policy pursued by Uteco is based on R&D investment and collaboration with partners and suppliers, in line with the spirit that characterizes the Print4All platform. Many emblematic events have been organized in recent months, among which the conference last November on hepatacromy (the second edition of FlexsoGood, dedicated to the extended gamut in flexography), developed in collaboration with companies like 3M-Prades, Sun Chemical, Rossini, Asahi, Camis, I & C-Gama, Grafikontrol and Simec Group to name the most prominent. And now it is preparing a repeat in the field of digital printing, on 6 and 7 February, hosting the Kodak VIP Inkjet Summit entitled “Creative Freedom in Packaging”. In-depth analysis will be offered on digital inkjet and the evolution of Uteco’s Sapphire EVO hybrid, with live demos of water-based inkjet printing performance for flexible packaging and labels.
Main Sponsors – Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica
“Culture of Excellence”, this is the claim that sums up the company philosophy of KBA-Flexotecnica, the new Main Sponsor of Print4All Conference that joins Omet and Uteco.
KBA-Flexotecnica designs and manufactures central drum (CI) flexographic presses with a high technical and technological content ranging from 1 to 12 printing units and other complementary printing systems for laminating and converting plastic film, paper and cardboard packaging.
The company has been part of the Koenig & Bauer Group, the second largest producer of sheet and roll offset presses worldwide, since 2013. With the integration in the KBA Group, the experience gained in different sectors, and the common strategy of wanting to become a leader in the flexible packaging sector, the conditions are set for further expanding the product portfolio, developing hybrid lines with diversified technologies of the latest generation exploiting the existing expertise within the Group, ensuring its presence on international markets by taking advantage of the already consolidated global distribution and service network, that in fact places KBA-Flexotecnica among the world’s leading suppliers of technology for converting flexible packaging.
“Culture of Excellence”, we said, the “mantra” that sums up the business strategy of KBA-Flexotecnica focused on research, development and production of flexographic printing machines and for the converting of highly innovative flexible packaging in terms of the different types of packaging, oriented towards satisfying the growing demands of the most exacting markets.
