Carton production

Heidelberg is offering three webinars, including ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions in the next two months, starting this week. The first webinar will be on 4 March 2021 – Reliable and efficient packaging production, so please hurry because there is more to learn for those of us who thought we already knew enough. There is more detailed information through the packaging campaign currently running on the homepage at .

The growth market of packaging and especially the folding carton segment is part of the core business of Heidelberg. The company offers the industry a trend-setting product portfolio here, with innovations being added all the time to meet customers’ requirements and offer added benefits. As a partner, Heidelberg would like to use its digital platforms to share helpful information and answer individual questions in an interactive exchange.

Heidelberg is therefore launching a series of three webinars in spring under the slogan ‘HD4You’ that will look at the trends in packaging printing, show solutions, and offer a platform for a collective exchange. The free webinars will be held at 9:00 a.m. CET and again at 4:00 p.m. CET and will go on for an hour. Afterward, the participants will be able to put their questions about workflow, press, and postpress directly to the experts live in three different ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions.

The events are aimed at packaging printers all over the world and will be held in English. The webinars will be recorded and can be accessed by registered participants at any time afterwards.

The events will kick off on 4 March 2021 with the webinar ‘Reliable and efficient packaging production.’ The webinar will answer the degree to which folding carton production can be automated – from intelligent workflow to navigated packaging printing and robot-assisted post-press.

Expand into packaging production – 25 March 2021

On 25 March 2021, the participants in the webinar ‘Expand your business into packaging production’ will learn how an existing commercial print shop can get started in folding carton printing and the concrete steps required for this.

The third seminar will take place on 27 April 2021 and cover ‘One pass special applications in packaging.’ It will show how folding cartons with special finishing effects can be efficiently produced in just one printing pass.

“Already with the virtual Innovation Week last fall, we showed that even in difficult times, we stay in contact with our customers,” confirms Ludwig Allgoewer, Global Head of Sales and Marketing at Heidelberg. That being the case, Heidelberg will continue to use the digital platforms for webinars and further knowledge transfer. “We know that personal contact between customer and manufacturer is very important in the printing industry because it creates and reinforces trust. As soon as the situation allows, we look forward to welcoming our customers on-site again. Nevertheless, we regard the digital platforms as a good complement to the live events, even in the future, especially for customers from countries further away,” explains Ludwig Allgoewer.

Heidelberg has put together a whole package of interesting information on its website ( Here printers will also find the videos from Innovation Week that show the product innovations for packaging, commercial, and label segments. Furthermore, visitors will find additional and in-depth content about the innovative range of packaging printing solutions at

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
