Carton production

Heidelberg is offering three webinars, including ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions in the next two months, starting this week. The first webinar will be on 4 March 2021 – Reliable and efficient packaging production, so please hurry because there is more to learn for those of us who thought we already knew enough. There is more detailed information through the packaging campaign currently running on the homepage at .

The growth market of packaging and especially the folding carton segment is part of the core business of Heidelberg. The company offers the industry a trend-setting product portfolio here, with innovations being added all the time to meet customers’ requirements and offer added benefits. As a partner, Heidelberg would like to use its digital platforms to share helpful information and answer individual questions in an interactive exchange.

Heidelberg is therefore launching a series of three webinars in spring under the slogan ‘HD4You’ that will look at the trends in packaging printing, show solutions, and offer a platform for a collective exchange. The free webinars will be held at 9:00 a.m. CET and again at 4:00 p.m. CET and will go on for an hour. Afterward, the participants will be able to put their questions about workflow, press, and postpress directly to the experts live in three different ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions.

The events are aimed at packaging printers all over the world and will be held in English. The webinars will be recorded and can be accessed by registered participants at any time afterwards.

The events will kick off on 4 March 2021 with the webinar ‘Reliable and efficient packaging production.’ The webinar will answer the degree to which folding carton production can be automated – from intelligent workflow to navigated packaging printing and robot-assisted post-press.

The third seminar will take place on 27 April 2021 and cover ‘One pass special applications in packaging.’ It will show how folding cartons with special finishing effects can be efficiently produced in just one printing pass.

“Already with the virtual Innovation Week last fall, we showed that even in difficult times, we stay in contact with our customers,” confirms Ludwig Allgoewer, Global Head of Sales and Marketing at Heidelberg. That being the case, Heidelberg will continue to use the digital platforms for webinars and further knowledge transfer. “We know that personal contact between customer and manufacturer is very important in the printing industry because it creates and reinforces trust. As soon as the situation allows, we look forward to welcoming our customers on-site again. Nevertheless, we regard the digital platforms as a good complement to the live events, even in the future, especially for customers from countries further away,” explains Ludwig Allgoewer.

Heidelberg has put together a whole package of interesting information on its website ( Here printers will also find the videos from Innovation Week that show the product innovations for packaging, commercial, and label segments.

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.
