Pat McGrew at the INKISH NON-EVENT 2019 ...

INKISH hosted for the first time ever our NON-EVENT. The Non-event is celebrating the people that have been in front of the camera, or been supporting INKISH during the past years. This is a new recurring event, and the idea is to give space for the people we have featured to connect in a new way. We invited 150 people, and 32 decided to join us. Our guests came from Japan, Canada, USA, UK, Belgium, Sweden, and Denmark - and we are confident that next year, even more, will come. We asked most of our participants to talk LIVE during the dinner - and here is Pat McGrew from the US. Pat McGrew may not need much of an introduction, but here we go. She is Director of Keypoint Intelligence, she owns and operates three restaurants, she hosts several podcasts, and of course, she is the host on Print Sample TV. Her energy level is WAY higher than most we know. Great to see her in Copenhagen! Enjoy!

Disruption is our Friend · Mark Hunt · D...

Mark Hunt is the Director of Strategic Alliances from Standard Finishing Solutions. Standard Finishing Solution is the American distributor of Horizon and Hunkeler, and we met him at the Think Smart Factory event in Kyoto. In this INKISH interview, Mark Hunt speaks about the transition both Hunkeler and Horizon have been in since they started working with both companies many years ago. Obviously, the market has changed, and in the interview, Mark Hunt concludes that both companies are VERY well fit for the future of digital printing. Enjoy!

Road to automation · Yoshihiro Oe · Gene...

At the recent Think Smart Factory event in Kyoto, Japan, we got the chance to talk to General Manager, Global Business, Yoshihiro Oe. In this film, we talk about the event itself obviously, but we also get the chance to talk about what has led to automation. As Yoshihiro Oe explains developing many different machines is one thing, but tomorrows demand for automation, and smarter factories require the development of new technology. After seeing and experiencing both the Horizon factory as well as the Think Smart Factory event, we at INKISH are pretty convinced that Horizon and their partners are onto something that will be a gamechanger in the binding industry. Enjoy the film - and the many that will follow in the following days!

Think Smart Factory · Day 3

This is our video documentation of the third- and last day at Think Smart Factory. Clearly fewer people at the show-floor, but still good. That is good for us since it gives us more space at the stations with demonstrations. Today we got the chance to do a longer interview with General Manager Yoji "Joe" Otsuka from SCREEN, and we have a short snippet of our conversation with him in this daily show report. We hope you enjoyed the films we have published so far, and you can for sure look forward to some great interviews, great presentations of technology, and well a factory tour from Horizon. We can't wait to show you!

Think Smart Factory · Day 2

The second day at the Think Smart Factory event in Kyoto was as good as the first one - maybe even better. Many people at the show-floor, exciting presentations, and a chance to dig into even more of the workflows. In our first film, we promised to show you all ten stations here, but there are simply too many people around the stations to do this in a 'live' style. So we have recorded all ten stations, will make them into separate films that you can enjoy one by one afterwards.

Think Smart Factory · Day 1

What a start. Think Smart Factory is a new event, and without comparison, one of the best-executed events we have ever attended. Think Smart Factory is an event where all focus is on showing end-to-end solutions. There are ten different stations where you can see the flows from the paper intake to the output of a finished product. Clearly inspired by Hunkeler Innovationdays where it's also about equipment, but with an even more expressed dedication to show the entire workflow. This is a rare opportunity to see the entire process from when a job-ticket is created to the finished product delivered. But check out of show-report and look forward to seeing all ten workflows presented here on INKISH. Expect also interesting interviews with industry leaders from the show floor. Finally, you will get a new show report every day, and also articles on NEWS. Enjoy!

Highcon Open House at Virtual Packaging ...

To step into a printing company where the lobby looks more like a fancy café or restaurant is just raising the expectations, and the audience was for sure given food for the brain during the few hours open-house event. Highcon is the host, and INKISH was commissioned to cover the event, however, the coverage to turn out to interviews, and nice visuals. After a short introduction to the event by Vice President and General Manager Matt Bennets from Highcon Americas, the stage was hand over to Mike Ferrari. Ferrari is a well-established name in the industry as being a great speaker and motivator, and of course, the purpose was to give the audience an insight in why digital finishing is becoming more and more interesting. One of the high lights was that pricing of, i.e. packaging has to be seen from a different perspective than the production cost itself - or what brands pay today. The price has to be way more about what value it brings to a product. Short-run, personalization, and even completely new types of packaging are just a few of the promises. Then it was time for a demo. The work-floor had only two machines - a Landa S10, and a Highcon Beam - but those two machines are the ones that give Virtual Packaging a tremendous success. Highcon presented how fast the setup time was, the production of the DART (creasing), and then, of course, the production of different types of products. But why not just watch, and listen - after all a bit easier!

FESPA MADRID 2020 On The Radar · Graeme ...

At trade-shows you not only meet exhibitors and printers, but you also need people from other trade-shows. At PRINTING United 2019 we met Graeme Richardson-Locke who is the Technical Support Manager of FESPA. FESPA is global trade-shows, but FESPA is first and foremost a membership organisation. FESPA was founded in Denmark in 1961 and has since then grown to become an organisation with 26.000+ members. The strong community is, of course, important to the success of FESPA and in this film Graeme Richardson-Locke explains how FESPA support its members, and of course, also what to expect from the FESPA Madrid 2020 event. Enjoy!

Think Smart Factory · Kyoto November 11t...

Think Smart Factory is an upcoming event in Kyoto, Japan. As you can hear in this presentation, of the event, by Yoshihiro Oe, General Manager from Horizon International, the event is not so much like an exhibition. Rather than having booths where each exhibitor presents its products and services, Smart Factory is an opportunity to see equipment working together and see end-to-end productions. The "end-to-end" also includes the workflow part that is typically before print, of course. The event is developed by a group of companies including: Canon Marketing Japan. Inc. / DAC ENGINEERING Co., Ltd. / FUJIFILM Global Graphic Systems Co., Ltd. / goof, inc. / HP Japan Inc. / Hunkeler AG / JSPIRITS Inc. / KONICA MINOLTA JAPAN, INC. / RESOLOGIC. Inc. / Ricoh Japan Co., Ltd. / RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology Ltd. / SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd. / TECNAU INKISH will be covering the event, and we can't wait to get to Kyoto. As Yoshihiro Oe also states in this interview, Kyoto is wonderful this time a year. Hope to see you there!

PRINTING United 2019 Day 2 · CHILI Publi...

One of the companies that have always continued to surprise us is CHILI Publish from Belgium. The company has one product on the shelf called CHILI Publisher and the first thing that comes to mind when you see it is Adobe InDesign in an online-version. However, CHILI Publisher is way more. It's an online templating and collaboration tool that enable users to create a stunning design online with sources from off-line to PIM's, DAM's and other data sources. October 24th we broadcasted LIVE from their booth at Printing United, and here is it. The un-edited version will shortly be trimmed into easier to consume 'bites' - however until then below is an approx. time-line.

STATUS: Printing United 2019 · Ford Bowe...

Printing United has been one of the most anticipated events in the US printing industry for at least some years. When a new trade-show of this scale is presented, most attendees, exhibitors, media, and of course, the people working with the event, set some expectations. Printing United was fantastic. Most of the time, exhibitors were very busy, and attendees used the show to gain knowledge, to see new products, to be inspired, and of course, to acquire new products, and services. The show had, in my opinion, fewer innovations than expected. Maybe this made Printing United "just" a perfect trade show because of the size, the optimism, and the fact that the organizers "under one roof" show was right. We will soon write a more detailed opinion on INKISH.NEWS about the event itself, and what kind of things we would like to see in the future. But here you can hear and see an interview with one of the driving forces behind Printing United, President & CEO Ford Bowers of the SGIA. This film was recorded LIVE.

2nd Show Report LabelExpo – Brusse...

After a slow start, LabelExpo took off, and for the people we spoke to, everything was great! The number of visitors, along with the quality, was two significant important comments. The media people we met in the Press Office were positive, though a few commented that there weren't that many new technological breakthroughs. I am not sure if that is 100% correct since shows don't only show products, but also represent trends. One of the more important trends at LabelExpo is the adaption of IoT and Industry 4.0. For many printers, this is most likely words with little resemblance, and we will, of course, tell more about what this is and how this can influence you as a printer.
