Each day’s programme begins with a live report focusing on a different topic. First, packaging features. Second up, on day two is digitisation. Lastly, diversification for day three.
Ludwig Allgoewer, global head of sales & marketing at Heidelberg, says
He says, “We are accelerating the development of intelligent digitisation solutions to meet the requirements of our customers. At Innovation Week 2021, we are once again demonstrating our credentials as a technology leader. We are always a step ahead of developments. So, we have an aim of securing future business success for our customers.”
On demand video
Participants can watch on demand video clips to obtain specific information on Heidelberg solutions. For instance, one video introduces Heidelberg Plus, the new entry portal to the Heidelberg ecosystem. In addition, you can see how to succeed in the growth market of label printing with the Speedmaster CX 75. This clip shows how to become more competitive with the help of new surface finishing options based on digital printing.
Another video features how the Performance Advisor Technology automated consulting tool uses artificial intelligence to help optimise print shop processes. The benefits of remote agreements with the primary objective of increasing machine availability also features in the clips.
Presentations will feature examples of international customers from the commercial, packaging, and label market segments. Entrepreneurs will present their print shops. They will demonstrate how they have improved their performance and their competitiveness using the latest Heidelberg innovations to drive their company’s digitisation.
The profiles include successful users of the Speedmaster CX 104 press, the highly automated Stahlfolder P-Stacker with cutting-edge robot technology, and the Versafire digital printing systems with their exceptionally flexible applications, especially in surface finishing. Other profiles focus on printing companies that have boosted their productivity thanks to a subscription agreement with Heidelberg, and on customers who have digitised and automated their processes using the Prinect workflow.
Allgoewer says, “The customer profiles provide exciting and authentic insights into how print shops have become noticeably more productive using the innovations Heidelberg has introduced over the past 18 months across all market segments, and how they have made processes more efficient and cost-effective thanks to digitisation.”
To accompany the online programme, existing and potential customers can contact the relevant Heidelberg experts on each day of the event, without making an appointment.
The Heidelberg video media library is available to all Innovation Week 2021 participants who wish to obtain further information. They cover a number of topics and many Heidelberg products. You can access them at any time and also stream them after the event. In addition, the library will have recordings of all online Innovation Week presentations.
