Hunkeler Innovationsday 2017 show wrap up
The bi-annual digital spectacular that is Hunkeler Innovationdays returned to Lucerne in Switzerland this February, bringing together all of the leading digital print manufacturers and their workflow ‘partners’ to showcase the latest digital print technology.
As usual with this event Friedheim organised two fully-booked customer trips (totalling over 100 people), as well as a separate visit for leading UK trade journalists.
With over 4200 visitors a day the show has been an unqualified success bringing decision makers from across the globe together to discuss new concepts, best practice, ground breaking new techniques and above all to buy machines!
It was the largest Innovations event to date with over 80 partners exhibiting, including all the printer vendors but also some of the best finishing companies throughout the world. That includes our very own Komfi and Palamides showing off their Amiga 52 with OTF and the newly improved Layflat binder respectively.
As always with the Hunkeler event it’s quite difficult to choose which innovations we want to promote the most and we’ve already seen all the trade media have started their coverage, below is a summary of the we at Friedheim believe needs to be explored further to really kick the UK’s Digital marketing into overdrive!

At a speed of up to 200 meters per minute, the Double Plow Folder PF7 can be used for the most powerful full colour digital printing systems available on the market. Apart from the production of signatures, loose leaf stacks can also be made by opening the fold with an edge trim in the CS6 cutting module. With its Double Plow Folder PF7, Hunkeler has consolidated the open concept which assures maximum flexibility for users. The processing line can be used as an offline or inline configuration with any desired printing system.
Hunkeler presented an innovative, patented laser process for safety punching and perforation. The areas of applications include the production of checks, coupons and direct mail pieces where the dynamic stamping of distinct individual shapes for safety characteristics or any arbitrary dynamic perforation pattern is required.
