Baldwin Technology Company will unveil its next-generation color management, surface treatment, UV/LED curing, inspection, defect detection and Industry 4.0 based analytics solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

The company’s theme will be Industry 4.0 and Industrial ‘Internet-of-Things’-enabled technologies. Featured solutions pair sensor-gathered data with operational data from Baldwin equipment to gain live, actionable insights that can be used to improve production monitoring, so printers can achieve new levels of color consistency with fewer defects and greater assurance of curing, according to the company.

“With Baldwin technology, your UV system provides continuous insights into its performance to improve service efficiency, prevent curing issues, and assure brand owners of consistent quality, job after job,” explained chief marketing and IoT officer Steve Metcalf. “We now offer IoT-connected solutions across our product lineup to give printers a competitive advantage based on intelligent analysis, not feelings.”

Ahlbrandt, AMS Spectral UV (formerly Air Motion Systems and Baldwin UV) and Baldwin Vision Systems (formerly QuadTech and PC Industries) have joined the Baldwin Technology family as part of strategic acquisitions in the last three years. Company chairman and chief executive officer Kyle Chapman explained that Baldwin’s dedication to the printing industry made acquisitions of companies manufacturing networkable process automation technologies a priority for its overall strategy.

“Labelexpo Europe 2019 will mark the first unveiling of our IoT offerings in connection with UV LED curing, and this is just the beginning,” added Carsten Barlebo, vice president EMEAR of Baldwin’s AMS Spectral UV. “The industry is being challenged to embrace Industry 4.0 to automate and assure its processes, for reasons like packaging security, brand consistency, and food-grade requirements. At Baldwin, we are leading the transition by offering pre-connected data solutions for companies looking to stay competitive and profitable in today’s fast-paced environment.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
