Drupa Innovation Park 2012 to Provide Smart Solutions for Media Industry
Environmental awareness and ecology will of course also be a key topic at this year’s dip. Innovations for sustainable printing production will be showcased in the Green Printing Park. The U.S. company Flexocleaners’ main focus is to provide ecological products for the entire flexographic industry.
The Print Product Innovation Park will be the place to go for innovative print products and technologies. The solutions on show will range from print finishing to secure printing. Dr. Rudolf Weidlich of GRT, noted: “We manufacture rotogravure cylinders for the packaging and security printing market. Our extensive experience and technical unique selling points enable us to transfer the smallest of objects to print cylinders with outstanding precision. A total of 25% of the company’s sales are already being achieved in the field of security printing, both for high-security applications and packaging applications in the fields of product security and product tracking.”
“With our color management solutions we are able to provide an essential contribution towards print buyers receiving print products from their providers with constant color impressions, regardless of the printing processes and media used,” added Bernd Staudt, Marketing Manager at GMG GmbH.
Printing is more than just publishing – printing as a process technology will be the main focus in the Printed Electronics / Functional Printing Park. This technology is all set to revolutionize production in many industries in the foreseeable future and will therefore be represented in the dip in cooperation with the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). The young Portuguese company Ynvisible develops and markets solutions for daily use in production environments. The existing prototypes are available for the next technological advancements.
The exhibits in the drupa innovation park will be complemented by various talks from the dip exhibitors and their partners on two presentation stages in hall 7.0. In addition, moderated panel discussions on the dip stages as well as interviews in the dip energy lounge are planned. These features of the dip are designed to facilitate communication between attendees and exhibitors.
