Its an exciting time again for those in the world of labelling and narrow web packaging, as its time for the biennial Labelexpo show in Brussels later this month. As always we expect to see a lot of exciting new technology launches, some product line refreshes and a bit of the “same as always” offerings from some suppliers. The core innovations in the digital space from Xeikon and HP will be heavily watched, and a lot of the attention will be on the inkjet platforms to see if they have improved the quality of the print since the last big show at IPEX last year.
The Digital Print Workshop “face off” of Xeikon v HP v EFI Jetrion looks like it must not be missed!
As always I will be writing a review of the event from the perspective of a label converter heavily into security, variable data and short run digital work in the same way we did reviews of IPEX 2010 and Label Expo 2009 which attracted a lot of debate on this blog.
If anyone would like to meet me at the show please contact me in advance, and I am particularly interested in approaches from people who can offer solutions to our top 5 MOST WANTED problems in labelling.
Watch this space!
