Marrs is a super interesting company, producing luxury packaging. Besides the Eagle Systems Cold Foiler and the two Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 presses, Marrs is equipped with everything needed to produce beautiful boxes. They even produce all the dies inhouse - and to give you an idea of how much they produce, they have two people employed to only produce die forms - and seeing how the dies are prepared for the die-cutting machines is super nice. The family-owned company is VERY pleased with their second investment in the Eagle foiling system, and it's being used almost all the time. Super interesting to meet the next generation (cousins) John Brigsby and Andrew Marrs - and, of course, also talking to Ricardo Lopez, who's worked in offset for years - after giving up his dream of being a professional football player many years ago. A truly nice company with a convincing family spirit.

Super interesting interview with Arnaud Calleja from AGFA. As you may recall, AGFA changed strategy a couple of years ago, sold off its offset division (now ECO3), and turned towards an entirely digital strategy - still combined with other business units within chemical, medical, radiology, green hydrogen, and other super interesting areas - in this interview with VP of Digital Printing Solutions Arnaud Calleja, Editor Morten B. Reitoft a chance to understand more about how AGFA is changing. We are sure you will like it :-)

At the AGFA Unboxing event, we met Roy Oomen from Highcon - and as both Highcon and AGFA deliver solutions for digital packaging as such, not a huge surprise - A growing partnership is on its way, and Highcon even presented their finishing solutions to the audience - but listen to what Roy Oomen has to say in this interview Cambridge.

INKISH is part of the unboxing event in Cambridge - the first time we heard about the SpeedSet 1060 was at ICE in Munich, then a new update at FEFCO in Lyon - and finally, we see the 'beast' in Cambridge. The SpeedSet 1060 is a B1 water-based single-pass inkjet machine made for the folding carton/packaging segment - and excels with high quality at speeds up to 11,000 sheets per hour.
The Unboxing event was visited by a number of selected customers from Europe and the US, and here captured by INKISH filmer Jack Fisher.
Enjoy - and check also all the interviews we have done.
Barry Joyce from Simpson Group decided to join the Unboxing event in Cambridge because the SpeedSet 1060 might be interesting for Simpson Group. However, the company currently works mostly in the Large Format segment - SpeedSet 1060 runs up to 2 mm thick material, but also down to very thin substrates, potentially enabling customers to produce a very broad range of applications.
Francesco Sorrentino sells AGFA solutions in the southern part of Italy with success. As we speak with him at the Unboxing event in Cambridge, he proudly shows two installations taking place as we speak.

Everything that can go digital will go digital - and in a presentation at the Unboxing event of the new AGFA SpeedSet 1060, Sean Smyth from Pira International explains the trends. Editor Morten B. Reitoft gets the opportunity to ask whether AGFA ticks all the boxes with their new press - so dig in and learn :-)
Jeff Wettersten works as an analyst with Keypoint Intelligence and gave his analysis on the packaging market - and was very direct that the AGFA SpeedSet 1060 is nothing but a gamechanger about the market needs now, but even more important in the future - Speed, Quality, and no need for changeovers are important KPI's of the new machine - Editor Morten B. Reitoft got a chance to talk to him after his presentation!
