“We are accelerating the development of intelligent digitisation solutions to meet the requirements of our customers,” said Ludwig Allgoewer, Heidelberg’s global head of sales & marketing.

“At Innovation Week 2021, we will once again demonstrate our credentials as a technology leader – always a step ahead of developments – with the aim of securing future business success for our customers,” he adds.

Innovations for new business ideas
The sessions will host informative videos that highlight the opportunities offered by the current Heidelberg portfolio.

Video briefings will include:

  • The introduction of Heidelberg Plus, the new entry portal to the Heidelberg ecosystem. A one-time registration opens up the entire Heidelberg world for customers, enabling them to manage their business dealings with the company and access all its services.
  • How customers can enter the growing label market with the Speedmaster CX 75 and become more competitive with the help of new surface finishing options based on digital printing.
  • Insights into how the Performance Advisor Technology (PAT) automated consulting tool uses artificial intelligence to help optimise print shop processes, while a further clip focuses on the benefits of remote agreements with the primary objective of increasing machine availability.

Customer profiles
Virtual sessions will also feature best practice examples from global leaders from the commercial, packaging, and label market segments.

In detailed profiles, entrepreneurs will present their print shop and demonstrate how they have improved their performance and, above all, their competitiveness by using the latest Heidelberg innovations to drive their company’s digitisation.

The profiles will include successful users of:

  • the new, universal Speedmaster CX 104 press
  • the highly automated Stahlfolder P-Stacker with cutting-edge robot technology
  • the Versafire digital printing systems with their exceptionally flexible applications, especially in surface finishing

Other profiles will centre on companies that have boosted their productivity thanks to a subscription agreement with Heidelberg, and on customers who have automated their processes using the Prinect workflow.

“The customer profiles provide exciting and authentic insights into how print shops have become noticeably more productive by using the innovations Heidelberg has introduced over the past 18 months across all market segments, and how they have made processes more efficient and cost-effective thanks to digitisation,” explained Allgoewer.
