Siegwerk – Colouring the future at drupa 2016
GERMANY • The printing ink manufacturer for packaging, labels, and catalogs will present its wide range of products, solutions, and services at drupa 2016 with the motto “We color the future”. As a member of the German Paint and Printing Ink Association (VdL), Siegwerk will support the association’s “Link to ink – The combined know how” program during drupa with presentations about packaging safety and general ink composition.
Digital and in particular inkjet printing will be one of the leading topics over the next few years. Using its expertise in ink technology and its wide application know-how, Siegwerk is today expanding its business into the inkjet ink market – initially, for labels and, secondly for packaging applications too. The company has extended its research and development capabilities and has built a dedicated inkjet laboratory at its Technical Center in Annemasse (France) to drive the development of inkjet inks that meet the requirements for printing process efficiency as well as the functionality of printed materials.
An increasing number of printers are opting for LED UV technology regardless of the printing process used. With its potential for eco-efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and productivity advantages, it is definitively one technological advance of recent years that will drive future development in the printing industry.
