Arno Dürr, sales director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH: „We are very pleased that so many participants accepted our invitation and that we can concentrate on the subject HD flexo printing with the help of our extremely competent consultants from different points of view. In our opinion, flexo printing will play in the future an increasingly important role in the premium packaging field. By the interaction of high-quality and optimally adjusted components and processes you can achieve results which were considered impossible only a few years ago. Not least with the top-class collaboration with carefully selected machine builders, suppliers and production companies we were able to develop with our SENOFLEX® product class an exceptionally high-quality spectrum of inks and varnishes for the flexo printing and we are very pleased that it was accepted on the market extremely positive.”
