Unfold your potential: Boosting overall efficiency in packaging printing with digital integration and intelligent automation
The trends in packaging printing are obvious: ever-declining run lengths, an ever increasing number of stock keeping units and more demanding embellishments are used in order to attract attention at the point of sale, and all of this against the backdrop of extremely short delivery times and sustainability. Special applications and the need for flawless production add to the complexity. How can folding carton manufacturers manage this in a cost-effective way? How can they fully exploit the potential of their machines and achieve transparent and repeatable production? Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) presented its innovations at an event in October of this year to answer these questions.
“The growth market of packaging and especially folding carton manufacturing are part of our core business. Our product portfolio is leading the industry, and we are introducing innovations to further enhance it based on our customers’ demands. The optimization of folding carton manufacturing for the benefit of our customers is an integral part of our company strategy,” confirms Jörg Dähnhardt, Head of the Folding Carton Segment at Heidelberg.
Heidelberg offers innovative and customized solutions for converting operations: from job creation all the way to the finished folding carton. The Prinect workflow connects the various machines and processes and allows navigated folding carton production, or, in the ideal case, even autonomous production. The tried and tested consumables from the Saphira family and digital services ensure a stable production environment and the highest possible machine availability.
