Last week visiting the Drupa exhibition our team consisted of people from Technical, Prepress, Printing and Financial departments. New printing, binding and finishing equipment was seen and inspected, as well as the overall latest tendencies in printing business got observed. Although digital printing and Web to Print is very popular now, offset printing on UV presses is taking the industry by storm. Some new completely automatic folding machines show amazing speed. Different new solutions noted also from other finishing equipment suppliers, who try to meet the needs of both - producers of big runs as well as binding of the smallest printing runs.
Our representative of Prepress department paid special attention to software issues. It was good to meet members of Heidelberg, Muller Martini and Enfocus to have a chat about cooperation of all systems and to discuss the latest news of the industry. Closer cooperation with equipment and software producers will let us improve our production processes and reduce the risks of human errors.
Some of our colleagues had a chance to visit Heidelberg Print Media Center during this business trip. It was very interesting to see the equipment showrooms and collect information about Heidelberg’s most modern technical solutions of various kinds of printing techniques.
