Koenig & Bauer live from 16 - 25 June 2020

World-exclusive launches will be part of Koenig & Bauer live running from 16 – 25 June 2020, as well as seeing complete packaging workflow or commercial applications. The weekday streaming from the live area of Koenig & Bauer’s website will cover its diverse portfolio ranging from banknotes, via board, film, metal, and glass packaging through to coding, advertising, and publication printing. Registrations for the event are possible via koenig-bauer.com/live.

Senior executives will be providing updates on progress and developments. Each session lasts 20 minutes and will be in English or German, with start times at 10.00, 13.00, or 16.00 (CEST). Helping to bridge the gap between drupa originally scheduled for this month and the new date in April 2021, web visitors will learn of Koenig & Bauer’s latest innovations for the printing industry.

Koenig & Bauer Live opens with a sneak preview of its planned participation at drupa 2021. The other presentations will cover areas such as digital and webfed insights (corrugated and digital printing, flexo printing), sheetfed digital services, and commercial printing and packaging production applications. Marking and coding, metal decorating, glass and hollow container printing, and banknote solutions will be included under special solutions. Another highlight will be digital packaging printing updates from Koenig and Bauer Durst joint venture company and launch of the new B1 6,000sph VariJET 106, which integrates inkjet technology into the platform of the high-performance Rapida 106 offset sheetfed press. Also taking center stage will be the market launch of the Rapida 106 – Generation 2020.

Claus Bolza-Schünemann, chief executive officer of Koenig & Bauer said, “The wheels of technology and innovation never stop. With drupa postponed until April next year, we felt now was the time to help bridge the gap and provide updates on our progress and developments. You won’t be disappointed. These insights into the world of the print will include exclusive launches. And you can even see a complete packaging workflow or commercial application streamed live on the brand new Rapida.”

You can watch all sessions at the LIVE area of the Koenig & Bauer website. Register here for more information and to become part of the event.

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 Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
