GREAT DAY with many interesting take-aways!
Anthony has been the number one ambassador for speed for years, and I want to understand why this is important and how you obtain and motivate the company to also focus on speed.
Kasper is the second printing company in the world, being cradle-to-cradle compliant. In this session we hear about the journey, why it's important, and how it can be good business!
In this session, we talk to Michael Green from Hueney in Quebec, Canada, about his change from standard plates to process-free plates. Interesting journey, and pretty much without any obstacles.
Michael Thorvaldsen (Antalis) - talking about paper and why it sometimes makes sense to choose a more expensive paper rather than always focusing on the lowest denominator.
In times where we focus on efficiency, speed - is there at all space for focusing on quality, and if so, how to identify customers willing to pay for quality.
With a strong and dedicated focus on ROI, Rick Hess-Larsen in this session talk about why it's not always important to invest in the newest equipment.
Warren Werbitt is one of the most openminded persons we know, and in this session he talks about failure, and how to learn and recover from these. Great session!
In this session, we talk to Ulrich Stetter, who is the Geschäftsführer/Managing Director of Schleunungsdruck - one of the largest printing companies in Europe. In this conversation, we will have the opportunity to learn when it's time to scale - both up and down- which KPI's Stetter believes are important in operating a successful printing company. Learn! Ulrich Stetter recently became President of Intergraf!
Learn how the Internet of Things, finishing automation, and Horizon’s cloud-based iCE LiNK digital workflow can help optimize productivity and efficiency, and leverage Smart Factory concepts. This approach can help printers efficiently scale their business as volume grows, without having to add labor and hard-to-find manpower. Understanding finishing capabilities and successfully using them as part of an overall, streamlined workflow, from print to finish, will help minimize touch points, waste, and labor costs, and maximize productivity and profitability.
Hunkeler has been a pioneer, together with partners like Horizon International, integrating post press with advanced automation. Morten Reitoft will moderate a wide-ranging discussion between Hans Gut of Hunkeler and Mark Hunt of Standard Finishing Systems to review state-of-the-industry in Smart Manufacturing, and how lean principles, process automation and intelligent connectivity are guiding post press product development. To stay competitive today, printers are looking to lower labor costs, minimize touch points and streamline data-driven production workflows. Hunkeler solutions address nearly every print market segment – commercial, direct mail, book manufacturing and transactional print – so this lively exchange of ideas will cover lots of ground.
To establish a smart factory a digital mindset and 360-degree business solutions are needed. We present our interpretation of a smart factory with the goal of full automation of repetitive task and a self-optimizing production. The scope is not limited to the digitalization of production and print data workflows or to automate production lines with smart and connected machines but includes the sales process, customer communication and enterprise resource planning. To make it tangible, we discuss a potential end-2-end business solution using the example of a personalized face mask and cookie box from the creation of a business idea to the shipped product – from Pixel to Output.
What is the Smart Factory or Industry 4.0? In this opening session, David Zwang and WhatTheyThink will give you a look into what this is. Not only What They Think, but spiced with a lot of knowledge from one of America's very best. Do look forward to hearing David Zwang give you an introduction to why this is important for any printer!
In this session Robert F. Godwin will share his insights into the following VERY exciting topics. Generic description of the philosophy, strategy and technology required to automate stages of print workflow. How automation can play into using Gamification for employees (philosophy). Business benefits in regard to efficiency and profitability. Business challenges in regard to technology resource to maintain automation.
At the Smart Factory USA event November 16th, 12:00 PM ET, Diego Diaz, we will show attendees all the workflow components by sending a job through from A to Z - and then explain the steps one-by-one - so learning by seeing. The training will be presented by one of the best workflow people we know of, Diego Diaz. The Virtual Smart Factory is a LIVE presentation of how things are done, and you should have a lot of takeaways from this double session at the Smart Factory USA edition.
Inkjet is becoming an essential part of tomorrow's print. In this Smart Factory session, Kim Beswick from Memjet and Victor Abergel from MGI takes you through why the Smart Factory depends on new printing technology, as well!
This event is all about the ideas surrounding a Smart Factory and Industry 4.0; thoughts for how print and digital factories will inject innovation, intelligence and hyper-productivity. But hold on there partner, in order to get to 4.0, you need to make sure you are leveraging technologies that will help you get there. In this session, with our guests, we will talk about how you should “walk your workflow” and take note of where you have manual processes, slowdowns and bottlenecks, where there are opportunities to consolidate technologies or update with more capable, feature-rich solutions. Then we will offer you ideas for how to take this information and chart a smart path to your Smart Factory Industry 4.0. And this session will benefit any organizations dealing with print...digital or both types of product delivery channels. More specifically, we will also share some views on how PDF is becoming the defacto print and electronic standard for a multitude of industries and communication types.
How does web-to-print solutions influences the Smart Factory presented by Devia Software
Reliance on human decision-making for planning and imposition is becoming complex and unsustainable. Tilia Labs is leveraging AI technology to drive a revolution in preproduction, helping printers estimate faster, plan smarter, and manufacture profitably.
Most printing companies think of web-to-print as the vista prints, the online printing companies, etc. Web-to-Print is way more, and entirely new ways to do business online promise this session by Editor Morten B. Reitoft from INKISH.
