FESPA 2017 to show tech, equipment, for specialty print
May '17
The world's leading signmakers and graphics producers are gathering at FESPA 2017's global print expo at Messe Hamburg during May 8-12, 2017 to see the latest technology, equipment, consumables and materials for specialty print. With 1000 brands on display, there will be many exciting products, applications and solutions for visitors to uncover.
Visitors to past FESPA exhibitions have been witness to significant global launches.
FESPA CEO Neil Felton commented: "FESPA events have a deserved reputation as the leading global launch platform for wide format printing and signmaking technologies, and FESPA 2017 will be no exception. In the last few weeks, exhibitors from every product area have confirmed exciting debut products at this year's exhibition."
"Our own visitor research affirms that technology innovation is the leading driver for attending industry exhibitions, and that FESPA plays a vital role in shaping PSPs' investment plans. 41 per cent of visitors to our 2015 global print expo in Cologne planned to invest within six months of attending, and with over 100 new products to be shown at FESPA 2017 we expect the exhibition to have a similar influence on technology implementation among speciality printers in the coming year," Felton said.
Dedicated trails for textile printing, printed interior décor, corrugated and signage will guide visitors with an interest in these areas to the most relevant stands, highlighting solutions across all the halls. The show catalogue will also provide all necessary exhibitor information, as well as detailed floor plans to ensure visitors locate the suppliers and solutions they are looking for.
Some of the technology launches include the EMEA launch of Canon's, Océ Colorado 1640, the first wide format roll-to-roll printer based on Canon UVgel technology, HP's introduction of its latex print-and-cut solutions to simplify and accelerate sign and display production, the European debut of EFI's new Vutek 3r roll-to-roll LED printer, Fujifilm's exclusive technology preview of its new modular in-line flatbed production system, built on UV technology, and the worldwide debut of Massivit 3D Printing Technologies' flagship Massivit 1800 3D printer, which provides an advanced 3D printing solution for the wide-format and sign and display sectors.
Finishing is expected to be a focus area for innovation, with end-to-end productivity and workflow automation an increasing consideration for PSPs. Launches identified so far include the SP2000 large-format laser cutter from Trotec, designed to handle a diverse range of signmaking and display materials such as acrylic, wood and textiles. Zünd will showcase its G3 3XL-3200cutting system, which is equipped with new technological advances designed to facilitate advancing and processing of rolled fabrics.
Marabu's new inks for screen, digital and pad printing, and Sun Chemical's new FasciaCoat hardcoat varnish for dashboard fascia will also be special attraction at FESPA 2017. J-Teck3 will present its new series of textile pigment inks for Epson and Kyocera printheads.
New technology and solutions for textile at FESPA 2017 include the new Avinci DX3200 printer from Agfa Graphics for high quality soft signage, the first showing of the Kornit Vulcan, Kornit Digital's digital rival to screen printing carousels, targeted to screen printers producing collections and short runs for retailers and promotional purposes, the new GTC111-5400 extra large format printing machine from Klieverik, and Colorjet's new entry level TXF digital textile printer, suitable for fashion and home textile applications.
A number of exhibitors are also showcasing new equipment and technologies to enable PSPs to make the most of the opportunities available in printed interior décor. (SV)
