Using the advantages of web offset for package printing

Now, one can boost the company’s strengths using the advantages of web offset, and if you are interested to know more in the latest developments in web offset printing, don’t miss Muller Martini Printing Presses GmbH’s ‘Package Printing Seminar’ to be held on November 20-21 in Maulburg (Germany), where Muller Martini experts will present a variety of interesting web offset aspects and solutions for package printing.

Muller Martini VSOP printing presses with web widths of 520 and 850 mm are ideal for flexible packaging, labels and folding boxes.Unlike other sectors in the graphic arts industry, volumes in packaging printing are currently good. That is because even during economically difficult times, the consumer sector has shown itself to be relatively stable. According to a market study by PIRA International, the worldwide turnover of the packaging industry amounted to some USD 670 billion in 2010, and by 2016 it is set to rise to USD 820 billion. That is why more and more graphic arts companies are adding the printing of flexible packaging, labels and duplex board packaging to their traditional businesses.

Flexo and rotogravure printing, the established processes in this field, are being supplemented by stepless, variable size web offset printing and the new possibilities it offers. At its ‘Entry into Package Printing with Web Offset Technology’ seminar, Muller Martini, in its role as market leader for web printing presses in package printing, will explore the varied applications and opportunities presented by standardized offset printing in this field.

Key topics of the seminar will be data handling and printing plate manufacture in offset printing, ink systems, suitable materials (such as PE or PLA) and the range of uses of stepless, variable size web offset technology. The VSOP machine generation, which was first unveiled at the drupa 2012, will be presented with its enhanced features in Muller Martini’s showroom as the highlight of the event.
