Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019 will take place from 25 to 28 February 2019 at the exhibition center in Lucerne, Switzerland, about a 2-hour train ride from Zurich. The biennial show will be focused on digital print and automated finishing, binding and mailing processes. Many of the almost 100 exhibitors have announced global premieres at their stands. The theme of the event that takes place every two years is ‘Success with automation.’
Continuous workflow automation will again be one of the focal points of Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019. Transactional printers, direct mailers, book manufacturers and commercial printers are seeing print run lengths decline, driving up the number of make-ready processes. Efficient new production lines must minimize or eliminate manual interventions to save costs and increase margins. The ‘white paper in, finished product out’ business model depends on advanced automation. Hunkeler itself will demonstrate the leading-edge automation now available on their Generation 8 production system platform.
Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019 will have slightly more exhibitors than in 2017. Almost 100 partners will present their latest products in all areas of digital printing and processing in Halls 1 and 2. These partners include all the major manufacturers of printing and finishing systems, software developers and providers of finishing materials and consumables. As in previous years, some of the exhibitors will again use the exclusive surroundings of Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019 to offer a global premiere of their latest innovations.
Hunkeler Innovationdays has always featured an interdisciplinary concept and a collegiate atmosphere, and that spirit continues today. In the two, comparatively compact, halls all major players in the space meet up with owners, CEOs and management staff, making this a unique international industry event. Several exhibitors collaborate closely to demonstrate tightly-integrated production processes. Visitors also gain insight into a wide variety of practical, real-world applications that have immediate business relevance.
