Hunkeler Systeme will present a complete system solution to rapidly remove all production waste with a proper extraction, shredding and compacting process at drupa 2016. In the Müller Martini stand there are cut-offs, trimmed waste and dust from six saddle-stitcher and perfect-binders to properly evacuate and compact bales for transport. Production waste-systems from Hunkeler Systeme are all working with negative pressure from the point of collecting on to the end of the process. In addition, the line is equipped with both the Energy Saving System(ESS) and with the Automatic Switch Off System (ASA). Both systems allow energy savings up to 40% of the total consumption and are only active when the suction system is needed.

Within the integrated disposal system for security print documents, such as bank notes, a newly designed shredding system is operating. “The operation hours of the shredding knives have a lifetime of more than four times compared to existing models,” says Kurt Käser, CEO of Hunkeler Systeme.

The customers in the security and banking segment are looking for intelligent solutions, for supervision and reporting of the full destroying process. Hunkeler Systems are using fingerprint log-in identification and can 100% ensure that only authorized operators can run the full system. The workflow management system is comparing the material flow in and out and is reporting all the error and status messages within the software.

Hunkeler Systeme with its compact technology systems is represented on five partner stands at drupa, including Hunkeler, Canon, HP, Gietz, and Leonhard Kurz. A total of eight compact units out of the HKU family and BP bailing presses are on display. Hunkeler Systeme is presenting the new HKU 2000-V on the Leonhard Kurz Stand D60 in Hall 3. This compact disposal system is designed with a special compressing feature that can run in a continuous operating mode without stopping during the entire production process. An endless plastic bag is bound and separated to an economical transport size and guarantees a 100% clean change-over process. Several substrates such as labels, holograms and paper can be evacuated with the new system.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
