InPrint 2017, the Exhibition for Industrial Print Technology, will take place from 14 – 16 November 2017 in Hall A6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. The main theme of this year’s event is “Creating value with individualised products”, to reflect the trend towards adding value to products by means of individualisation. A total of 118 exhibitors from 17 countries have already secured their stand space at the third InPrint show in Germany.
At InPrint 2017 leading international companies will showcase state of the art technology, components and services for functional and decorative printing as well as packaging printing. A total of 118 exhibitors from 17 countries already confirmed their participation at the trade fair, with Germany, Great Britain and Italy being the most important exhibitor countries. For InPrint 2015, a total of 4,724 trade visitors from 65 countries travelled to Munich to discover the latest trends in industrial print.
Integration of printing solutions into existing manufacturing processes
Alongside the optimisation of manufacturing processes, the efficient individualisation of products is gaining further importance in order to create added value for customers. Therefore, the main theme for InPrint 2017 is “Creating value with individualised products”, to reflect the trend towards adding value to products by individualisation through industrial printing processes.
“The customer demand for individualised products at attractive prices is growing continuously. Manufacturers and finishers of items such as drinks bottles, cosmetics, packaging and clothing as well as flooring, wall cladding and interior decoration are increasingly investing in the integration of industrial printing into their manufacturing processes”, says Nicola Hamann, Managing Director at the organisers of InPrint, Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “However, a lot of companies are lacking practical approaches in industrial print, the printing on different materials and finishing processes. This is where InPrint is positioned as a specialised trade exhibition, since the show is offering its visitors the unique opportunity to get insights into possible applications of industrial print and have the option to exchange knowledge and solutions with other industry experts. Companies considering the integration of a printing process into their manufacturing system or needing practical solutions for integrated printing processes can discover methods, ideas and partners for the implementation of industrial printing technologies at InPrint 2017”, explains Nicola Hamann further.
Speciality, screen, digital and inkjet print are the four key areas of InPrint. The latest applications and equipment for industrial printing on metal, plastics, textile, glass, ceramics, wood and other surfaces will be on display. InPrint is exclusively dedicated to industrial print as part of the manufacturing process: from functional print for automotive components, household appliances, printed electronics, textiles and packaging to decorative printing on surfaces such as floor coverings and furniture. InPrint, with its specialised show profile, is therefore the business platform for printing technology experts from various manufacturing industries, specialists from industrial printing companies, OEMs, integrators, component manufacturers and developers as well as commercial print companies who wish to invest in industrial print.
