drupa Day 3: 2012: The Year of Digital Solutions for Packaging
After our third day at drupa we are getting more convinced that drupa 2012 is the “we think we have a digital solution for packaging” show. All indications we’ve seen on the showfloor predict that drupa 2016 will be the “Digital Printing for Packaging drupa”. What does that mean? It means that the old standbys, Xeikon, HP Indigo (with their label and narrow web machines), Jetrion, Durst, and a few others are here this year showing continuing improvements in packaging technologies for labels. These systems are still very viable solutions and will be solid workhorses for their owners for some time.
