There have been some notable developments in the digital production landscape for folding cartons, but overall the landscape has not changed significantly in the past year and a half.
With all the news chatter around digital printing for packaging coming out of PRINT 13 and Labelexpo this fall, I thought it appropriate to bring the Digital4Packaging readership some insights we have on the topic.
Digital printing for folding cartons has been in the news a lot over the past year. The success seen by HP Indigo with its 30000 carton press and by Xeikon with its 3500 series press are evidence that the industry is looking to address unmet needs in the supply chain.
Kevin and Mike Ferrari from Ferrari Innovation Solutions continue their talk about trends in the use of digital package printing at Labelexpo 13.
Kevin Karstedt and Mike Ferrari from Ferrari Innovation Solutions talk about what was shown at Labelexpo 13. This year's show was more than just labels, but had many products for packaging, in general.
PRINT 13 started out very nicely for me as my first official meeting was a breakfast meeting on Sunday morning with Benny Landa as he shared the updates on the packaging versions of the new nanographic digital press line that was introduced at drupa last year.
