Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019


The international industry event

The thirteenth international print industry event

About Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019

The event for trendsetters and technology leaders who will influence and set the pace for the next stage of industry innovation. 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.

Experience the high efficiency of end-to-end workflows over the entire value creation chain – from software to finished books, from idea to solution. Inline, nearline or offline – with tried and proven digital printing, or mapping the transition from conventional printing environments. As always, Innovationdays focuses on practical issues. Experience this event in a unique environment and be among the first to discover our innovations up close!
