With mainstay trades shows such as drupa and interpack postponed, W&H will take exhibits planned for those shows directly to customers’ computers around the world in the company’s first Virtual Expo to be held on 24 & 25 June 2020.
“This is an unprecedented and challenging time. And yet the flexible packaging industry is as busy if not busier than ever. It’s important that we take this opportunity to communicate with our customers and show them the new technologies and applications that are available now and can help run their production more efficiently,” said Peter Steinbeck, managing partner at W&H.
The flexible packaging industry around the world and in India and South Asia is busier than ever in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic. Several large projects are under shipment, installation, and commissioning around the world and in India too.
The three hour Virtual Expo will highlight 30-minute machine demonstrations from the W&H Printing Innovation Center, including the Novoflex II flexographic press featuring the new RUBY IoT system for analyzing production data as well as the Heliostar II gravure press.
A number of technical sessions will be offered –
For flexible packaging printers – handling solutions on the Novoflex II with print inspection from Ruby Check.
For industrial sack producers – the hidden potential in production data with Ruby Track; printing for industrial sacks with the Flexa II press; and, heavy-duty sack film on the Optimex II FFS blown film line.
For film extruders – All PE pouch film on the Varex II blown film line with MDO; and, heavy-duty sack film on the Optimex II FFS blown film line.
