Durst Group, a leading manufacturer of digital printing and production technologies, has won three EDP Awards at the Fespa Global Print Expo in Munich, Germany. The EDP Awards are the most prestigious awards in the digital printing industry and are presented by a consortium consisting of 21 European trade magazines for innovative solutions.

The Durst Group won awards for P5 Robotics, P5 350 HSR and Durst Workflow Software. P5 Robotics is the next level of automation for flexible and continuous production cycles with long run times. At the heart of P5 Robotics is the P5 350 HS D4 hybrid printing system, whose feeder/stacker unit is formed by two Kuka robots to handle the unmanned production of a complete shift.

The P5 350 HSR is the fastest 3.5-meter LED web printing system on the market, with a printing speed of up to 670 m2 and the option to feed large rolls weighing up to 1,000 kg and 635 mm in diameter. Durst Workflow is the Durst Group’s successful software that is now used by more than 600 print service providers worldwide for their prepress operations.

“The current EDP awards bring us full circle,” said Christoph Gamper, CEO and co-owner of Durst Group. “Five years ago at the Fespa trade show – also in Munich – we presented our roadmap for an in-house software division and the development of the P5 printer series to offer the industry a new dimension in print quality, print speed, flexibility, automation and for more sustainability. Today we have received recognition for our bold move and more importantly, our customers are benefiting from it. The awards belong to all “Durst’lers” around the world – I am delighted that our desire to innovate, coupled with a dash of Tyrolean stubbornness, has been recognized.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
