Also, this year the company invited top-class guest lecturer in addition to their own lectures. A main theme of the event was finished and high-valued packaging. Trends from the online trading were highlighted, solutions and feasibility scenarios were demonstrated as well as possibilities for their qualitative implementation. Together with the production partner Flint, Göpfert, Metsä Board, PANFLEX and THIMM a high-valued dispatch packaging was particular produced for the workshop in double-sided flexo post print with overall five inks and two coatings as well as a high finished corrugated board poster in black and gold with gloss coating and a haptic SENOSOFT® WB matt coating. The latter was printed at Göpfert live on a Göpfert – Caseline Model CL 11/25 – P Evolution Flowbelt Technology with direct-drive technology and vacuum transport on the second day of the event.

Arno Dürr, Sales Director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH about the successful event: “We are very pleased about the lively interest of our customers in our workshops and seminars. Particularly for the SENOFLEX®-Workshop which has already organized this year for the fourth time. Barely ten years ago, flexography, especially the corrugated post print, was still a niche product and not very popular in the printing industry. This area has now become an almost exponentially increasing sector of the printing industry thanks to innovative technological solutions and materials. The qualities and finishes that are already feasible today in the flexo post print are enormous and there is no end in sight to this development.” Arno Dürr concluded “Of course, one of the main reasons for this is the international increasing online trade. In addition to the pure protection of the dispatched products, special finishing which are usually applied inside the packaging for theft protection as well as partly colorful printing the outside of packaging as unique selling propositions and marketing instruments for brand owners and online retailers are playing more and more frequently an increasingly important role. In the course of this year’s workshop, we wanted to identify this as well as possibilities for such realization by using our SENOFLEX® product range of inks and coatings for flexo printing but also demonstrate it with materials and machines from our cooperation partners.”

Arno Dürr concluded: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank very much once again at our outstanding speakers and partners for the event and the both demo jobs as well as especially a great praise to the company Göpfert for the impressive welcome on the second day of the event.”
