The international industry event

Highlights Hunkeler

Engaging conversations and a range of new ideas and solutions that will inspire you. The printing sector is changing at a rapid pace and there is no event that reflects this dynamic activity better than the Hunkeler Innovationdays. Hunkeler will mark the thirteenth staging of this important event, under the theme "success with automation". Continuous workflow automation will be one of the focal points of Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019. Transactional printers, direct mailers, book manufacturers and commercial printers are seeing print run lengths decline, driving up the number of makeready processes. Efficient new production lines must minimize or eliminate manual interventions to save costs and increase margins. The "white paper in, finished product out" business model depends on advanced automation. Hunkeler will demonstrate the leading-edge automation now available on their Generation 8 production system platform.
