Hunkeler Innovation Days 2017: finishing take the lead

Muller Martini calls it Finishing 4.0. Finishing 4.0 stands for the complete automation of the finishing process. A trend which can only be successful in combination with production printing. During the Hunkeler Innovation Days 2017 Finishing 4.0 proved that finishing not only is in sync with the digitization of our industry, but that it has taken the lead and encourages manufacturers of production printers, digital front ends and paper to become more industrial and develop products that ensure that paper will keep its prominent place in the coming decades.

From books to complex direct mail pieces were automatically printed and finished in Lucerne. Thanks to the exchange of jobdata digital front end systems drove production printers of all well-known brands in combination with finishers from Muller Martini, Duplo, Kobus, RENZ, W+D and, of course, Hunkeler to produce complete graphic products.

More than 7,000 visitors visited the stands of 80 exhibitors. This select group of people were given a glimpse into the future of finishing as well as a couple of scoops, such as the new Canon Océ ProStream production printer and the new version of  the Kodak Stream and Ultrastream inkjet technology.
