IndPrint Packaging Solutions
InPrint Munich 2021, the international exhibition of print technology for industrial manufacturing, is teaming up with Ice Europe and CCE International, two leading trade events devoted to the latest innovations in converting and finishing, as well as corrugated and cardboard production technology, with a strong visitor interest also in printing for packaging solutions. The industry has welcomed the move to create a powerful, multifaceted platform with increased opportunities and synergies across related markets. The new show dates are 9 to 11 March 2021; the venue remains unchanged at Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany.
The print technology sector is constantly evolving, driven by retail changes and technical advancements that allow for new levels of speed, efficiency, interactivity, and automation. As print tech companies prepare for their next round of product launches and industry collaborations, InPrint Munich will bring new technologies and product improvements to market.
Over three days, print equipment and machine suppliers will meet international buyers and decision makers from the manufacturing and print service sector to discuss the increasing role of print technology in on-demand production, mass customisation, and cost efficient processing in the manufacturing of goods, parts, and packaging.
‘The co-location of three dedicated trade shows evolving around converting and printing technologies creates a really strong, multifaceted event with increased opportunities and synergies for both exhibitors and visitors,’ said Frazer Chesterman (FM Future), co-founder of the InPrint event brand. ‘Whilst the main focus of Ice or CCE visitors is on specialised converting technology, they are also looking for integrated print solutions to label or decorate their finished foil, film, paper, or carton product. Surveys confirm that one third of visitors want to know more about print technology that can be integrated into their manufacturing process. With InPrint Munich located next door, they can literally proceed to the next step in their production line.’
‘Print technology has now successfully penetrated most areas of the manufacturing sector. This is because technology suppliers have long acknowledged that adjusting technology to market demands is an ongoing and very rewarding effort,’ said Marcus Timson (FM Future), co-founder of the InPrint event brand. ‘Stand allocation is now well underway, and with Munich remaining our home, InPrint will be the destination for many visitors from the heart of Europe’s trade activities – a perfect platform for print tech companies to ride the wave, test the market, and promote new paths for print technology in industrial production.’
The previous InPrint Munich 2019 showcased 136 exhibitors from 22 countries, introducing technical innovations in digital, inkjet, screen and speciality printing on diverse shapes and materials.
Exhibits on display focused on printing machinery, printheads and components, inks, fluids and chemicals, UV technology, drying and curing equipment, metrology and quality assurance, software for colour and process management, and special custom built systems for packaging and labels, printed electronics, fabrics and textiles, surface finishings, additive manufacturing, security printing, 3D print, and many more.
