Heidelberg presents Service portfolio at drupa 2016.

Thanks to digitization, Big Data becomes Smart Data. Where service is concerned, therefore, the trend is increasingly towards anticipatory services.

Heidelberg shows off innovative packaging at the drupa future lab.

When coupled with eye-catching designs, value-added converting helps drive products off the shelf and into the hands of consumers. Along with excellent HiDef flexo printing, Heidelberg shows you a new way to holistic packaging production.

Using Heidelberg’s revolutionary inline converting solution, you produce value-added folding cartons from reel to gluer-ready blanks in a single pass. You efficiently combine multiple operations - laminating, screen printing, hot and cold foil applications and die-cutting - into a streamlined, high-speed, single-machine system.

With this alternative procedure, you will not only save costs by reducing manufacturing steps, but will also set a new standard for throughput and increase the reliability of the production process.

Get inspired with innovations from today that provide opportunities for tomorrow.
