“At a glance”: Personal recommendations by NarrowWebTech editor – 3-2018
At the beginning of this year we started a new format: titled “At a glance” it is published in each print issue of NarrowWebTech picking up the most interesting articles, the best quotes or the latest market data. This new format is never the same – it might be an compelling quote, an interesting figure about the label market or a part of it or another new thing! Take a look at our “At a glance” page out of the August issue, NarrowWebTech 3-2018!
Please find the whole page as published in our August issue by clicking on the following picture or scroll down to the written text:
The outstanding quote from this issue
“We are still looking for the “wonder laser” that has unlimited speed and no issues with “melting edges” and substrate restrictions. We hope to see technology advances in substrates that will encourage an increase in the use of lasers in the future.”
Uffe Nielsen, CEO Grafisk Maskinfabrik A/S (p. 58)
