Hunkeler's solutions at Hunkeler Innovationdays
Hunkeler Innovationdays will be held from 27 February to 2 March 2023 in Lucerne.

At the Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023, Hunkeler Systeme AG will present a range of products including the Hunkeler Compact System HKS-4500, the Hunkeler Document Destruction System HDDS 30 and the endproduct of roll splitters for the efficient disposal of paper rolls. 

The Hunkeler Compact System 

The Hunkeler Compact System HKS-4500 is a compact, vacuum extraction system, designed for the disposal of production waste on two print finishing lines. Space-saving, powerful and designed for changing containers without interrupting operation, the HKS-4500 ensures a clean production environment with low energy consumption and high efficiency. The HKS-4500 can be operated with all commercially available containers, the company said.

The Hunkeler Document Destruction System

The Hunkeler Document Destruction System HDDS 30 reliably destroys paper files and electronic data carriers. For documents, the HDDS 30 fulfils the requirements for security levels P3, P4 and P5 according to the DIN 66399 standard, and even all relevant security levels for electronic data carriers. The HDDS 30 operates with low dust pollution and is therefore suitable for document destruction in office premises.

The HKU 2000-N compact extraction unit

The HKU 2000-N compact extraction unit ensures non-stop operation of production lines on a comparatively small footprint with only one waste container. During container changeover, the production waste is held back by a short-term buffer and the extraction system as well as the production line do not have to be stopped. In this way, no production capacities are lost and the profitability of your production can be increased.

The Greenline Concept 

The Greenline Concept from Hunkeler Systeme AG saves costs and protects the environment. A well thought-out system architecture coupled with automatic switch-off, energy-saving system and heat recovery enables you to reduce the energy consumption for your disposal system to a minimum and significantly lower the operating costs.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
