Xeikon is one of the first companies to confirm its attendance at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2022. It will be the first live exhibition to take place in the Graphic Arts sector following the Covid-19 pandemic and the fourteenth edition of this prestigious and popular event. Focused on high-performance digital printing and finishing, this international print industry event is scheduled to be held in Switzerland at the Lucerne Exhibition Center from 21st to 24th February 2022, and it will be the 9th participation in a row for the company.

Dimitri Van Gaever, Market Segment Director for Graphic Arts, states, “During these past months, Xeikon has completed an important milestone by introducing its Sirius technology, the cornerstone of Xeikon’s new roll-fed duplex presses. With the successful commercialization of its next-generation dry toner technology stack, Xeikon is confirming its commitment to the graphic arts market. The company’s journey of full color, digital print production started more than 30 years ago, and Xeikon continues to innovate and bring to market advanced, added-value technologies and systems.”

The Xeikon SX30000 is the most productive full-color duplex press of the Sirius family, delivering up to 2,545 B2 sheets an hour (404ppm A4). Moreover, it is more versatile than sheet-fed options because of its complete rotary concept without fixed sheets or frame size. On the other hand, the Xeikon SX20000 is the entry-level press of the new line-up, which also offers leading EP performance but at a lower price point while still benefiting from all the technological developments of the flagship press.

Van Gaever states, “The Graphic Arts market has gone through a difficult time. However, we are now seeing a ‘bounce back’ and growing volumes. We are noticing that printers in these sectors are becoming more aware and open to increasing and optimizing their manufacturing processes. This is where digital printing and Xeikon’s Sirius technology can be their dependable cornerstone to facilitate their strategies. We know that seeing is believing, and with the return of Hunkeler Innovationdays, it will be a perfect opportunity for visitors to dive into our new production lines and understand the value they can offer to the challenges they face.”

We are excited that, after an abnormal period brought about by the global pandemic, we will be able to physically bring the industry together in February 2022. Print is tangible, and this is a unique meeting place where the digital world becomes physical, and visitors gain an insight into the versatile scenarios with a high practical relevance. Industry owners, managing directors, management, and experts in high-performance digital printing will sit around a physical table, evaluate printed output and assess the latest developments in digital printing and finishing. We are delighted to welcome Xeikon to our 2022 event in beautiful Lucerne, Switzerland.”

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.
