WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH – Franconian Lacquer Specialties 2014

The Franconian Lacquer Specialties celebrated it’s anniversary

For by now the tenth time in succession WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH invited to their Franconian Lacquer Specialities in Gerhardshofen. Under this year’s theme “Offset meets Flexo” experts reported from different subjects and perspectives to strengths and weaknesses of the two printing processes in comparison before an audience of approximately seventy invited guests. After the event’s official greeting and opening by Günter Korbacher, sales director Arno Dürr led as always through the program.

Topics and speakers in this year were:

Offset meets Flexo
Andreas Och, WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH

Varnishing – quickly and easily in KBA-sheet-fed offset presses
Sven Kretzschmar, KBA – Bogenoffset

100 percent control in flexoprint
André Göpfert, Göpfert Maschinen GmbH

Offset vs. Flexo
Dennis Grotian, Metsä Board Deutschland GmbH

Flexo-postprint vs. Sheet-fed offset –two printing processes in comparison
Carsten Geisel, STI Corrugated GmbH

Fit to lead
Hubert Schwarz, Hubert Schwarz & Cie. GmbH & Co. KG

Subsequent to the main event a common run of 5 km for the sportive attendees was also offered this year.

Like every year the evening was rounded off by a common dinner in the restaurant Kohlenmühle and was kicked off with a guided tour of the brewery.

Günter Korbacher comments the event as follows: “The flexographic printing process becomes more and more important particularly in the corrugated direct printing. The qualities herby achieved increase constantly with ideal matching of the used inks and coatings on the substrates and are mainly comparable with offset printing. During our anniversary event, we thought it was time to draw both printing processes into a direct comparison as to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. We have invited our customers to our Franconian Lacquer Specialties for ten years now and give with the assistance of selected and highly qualified speakers an insight into different topics and areas of expertise around of the printing and packaging industry. According to our guests, we are very pleased that our event has become a full-grown delicacy. We are already looking forward to the next ten specialties from Franconia.”
