Heidelberg session on packaging megatrends
Wednesday, July 6, 2022
Heidelberg is set to host a webinar tomorrow that will look at packaging megatrends such as sustainability and automation.
The 45-minute session, titled ‘Sustainability and Automation: Two mega trends shaping the packaging industry’, will be a two-hander between Heidelberg's head of business development packaging Kerstin Haase and Heidelberg UK product executive, sheetfed & digital Matt Rockley.
The pair will discuss sustainable packaging production solutions, looking at practical ways to reduce carbon footprints and energy consumption as well as analysing cross-industry recycling initiatives and the circular economy for fibre-based packaging.
They will also look how robotics and AI are impacting print for packaging, and how they can further boost productivity and quality control as well as loop into sustainability efforts.
“It’s a great opportunity to discover the industry’s latest sustainable packaging innovations and automation technologies," said Ryan Miles, managing director of Heidelberg UK.
"Matt & Kerstin will also address trending topics such as energy and resource saving during packaging print production, cross-industry initiatives, developments for higher recycling rate and the circular economy for fibre-based packaging, and use of AI in printing and automation.”
The webinar will include a Q&A session, with Heidelberg experts on hand to for follow-up one-to-one questions.
The session, which is being hosted by London Packaging Week, takes place on Thursday 7 July 7 from 11-11.45am BST.
