Spotlight on advances in end-to-end automation for label converters
Esko, the global provider of integrated software and hardware solutions for label professionals, will showcase its latest technological innovations at this year’s Labelexpo Europe.
From 26 to 29 April, Esko will demonstrate to visitors at the Brussels Expo how its software and hardware solutions combine to deliver the most effective, state-of-the-art workflow automation and prepress technology for label converters.
With its CDI Crystal XPS 4835 flexo imaging and exposure unit - complete with innovative automated PlateHandler and PlateFeeder - at the heart of its display, the Esko exhibition space will feature a range of cutting-edge integrated technologies. The latest version of market-leading Esko Automation Engine, now available to users either on-premise or as a SaaS solution, will demonstrate the benefits of an automated prepress workflow, while the team will unveil the new Flexo Engine module, which merges functionality, automation and a host of features developed to increase prepress productivity.
“We are looking forward to meeting our partners, customers, friends and colleagues in person again at this year’s Labelexpo,” said Jan De Roeck, Director Industry Relations & Strategic Marketing, Esko. “With the latest developments to our web-based collaboration and automation software and our plate making and print inspection hardware, Labelexpo provides the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate how digitizing, automating and connecting processes delivers significant efficiencies to businesses.
“Today’s turbulent and volatile market dynamics put label converters under tremendous pressure, with an ever-growing need for accuracy, consistency and efficiency,” he said. “The adoption of integrated hardware and software to automate and connect workflows, systems and processes delivers the clearest tangible benefit in meeting this challenge.”
From the company’s booth (A35, Hall 4) the Esko team will be showcasing its latest innovations, including new VDP enhancements in Automation Engine that makes the integration of Variable Data Printing requirements as easy as a few mouse clicks, and the newest developments in on-press color and quality management with its AVT print inspection system. This technology will be further showcased at the Labelexpo event space Automation Arena, when Esko will demonstrate a complete integrated, automated workflow to visitors.
“Excellence in business performance – the value promise of digital transformation – leads to success by improving operational processes, lowering costs and delivering client loyalty,” said Jan. “By developing technologies that seek to speed up and connect processes and devices efficiently, while eliminating errors and waste, Esko enables label converters to meet the challenges of both today and tomorrow, while also reducing waste as much as possible throughout the entire ideation-to-shelf workflow.
Esko is looking forward to welcoming visitors to booth A35 in Hall 4 at Labelexpo Europe 2022. Adjacent to the Esko booth, X-Rite Pantone will demonstrate a connected ecosystem for color management integrated with the Esko workflow.
