Arno Dürr, Sales Director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH about the successful event: “We are very pleased about the lively interest of our customers in our workshops and seminars. Particularly for the SENOFLEX®-Workshop which has already organized this year for the fourth time. Barely ten years ago, flexography, especially the corrugated post print, was still a niche product and not very popular in the printing industry. This area has now become an almost exponentially increasing sector of the printing industry thanks to innovative technological solutions and materials. The qualities and finishes that are already feasible today in the flexo post print are enormous and there is no end in sight to this development.” Arno Dürr concluded “Of course, one of the main reasons for this is the international increasing online trade. In addition to the pure protection of the dispatched products, special finishing which are usually applied inside the packaging for theft protection as well as partly colorful printing the outside of packaging as unique selling propositions and marketing instruments for brand owners and online retailers are playing more and more frequently an increasingly important role. In the course of this year’s workshop, we wanted to identify this as well as possibilities for such realization by using our SENOFLEX® product range of inks and coatings for flexo printing but also demonstrate it with materials and machines from our cooperation partners.”

Arno Dürr concluded: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank very much once again at our outstanding speakers and partners for the event and the both demo jobs as well as especially a great praise to the company Göpfert for the impressive welcome on the second day of the event.”
