Without Investments We have NO Chance · ...

Production and Sales Director Mirko Breznan from TBB in Slovakia is very direct when he in this film says, "Without investing, there is no chance of surviving." And that is precisely what the company does. INKISH visited the printing company and, it was an exciting business to see how books are printed in a modern 100% up-to-date production. Offset equipment, binding equipment, efficient workflow, and spiced with the recent investment in Scodix - digital enhancement. Watch this really nice looking film, and enjoy!

Productive Gains with Extremely Few Touc...

We don't know many who don't talk about automation, often referring to workflow automation, but in this film, you will see automation like never before. The cardboard packaging printing company Schur Pack in Germany uses Schur Pack's own (but commercially available) logistics systems - sold and distributed in collaboration with Koenig & Bauer. CEO Klaus Madsen from Schur Pack explains the motivations and background for the high automation level, ensuring zero touchpoints on the substrates printed on. Director, Per Baekgaard from Schur Technology, explains why logistics solutions are important. "The faster a machine runs, the more it costs to spend time getting paper/cardboard to and from the machine," and the productivity gains can be in the range of 12-15% - and NOT reserved to large printing companies only. Enjoy the film - you WILL be inspired! LinkedIn Profiles: CEO Klaus Madsen Director Per Baekgaard

Growing Competition Fuels Growth · Shayn...

This was - to be honest - a very funny interview to do. Shayne Huston and Pam Deacon interviewed in this film from MGC, Des Moines, Iowa, made it a blast to do - even though editor Morten Reitoft interviewed them remotely. Mail Communications Group started as a mail sorting service, and today MCG is a full-service communications company that essentially helps its customers succeed. Solimar delivers one of the core products and the backbone of the IT infrastructure. INKISH and Solimar have done many projects together, and what continues to - well - not surprising, but emphasize, is the very close and personal relationship Solimar has with their customers. Enjoy.

A long time ago, I interviewed former HP Indigo GM Alon Bar-Shany, and one of the things he said, was "we never invented the Indigo to print balloons, but it does." It reminds me of the visit with CEO Patrick Donner from Traffic Print Online Solutions. He has invested in Xerox, HP, Scodix, and a fantastic range of other technologies, so a printing company like so many others, you could argue, but Traffic is not like all others. Every time others say no thanks, Patrick Donner and his team find solutions - and it looks great, and show the diversity the equipment can be used for - great company, great products, to us an inspiration.

New Taxonomy Initiative from PRINTING Un...

First, you may ask yourself what Taxonomy is? Second, you may ask yourself why this at all is important to you? PRINTING United Alliance in the US recently announced a new Taxonomy initiative that essentially will develop a new taxonomy paradigm for printed products, services, technologies - and the impact is vast. Taxonomy is used to build logical groups and entities known from how books in a library are organized. This is a VERY important initiative, and right after the announcement, we reached out to David Zwang and Marco Boer to hear more about the project and, of course, their views on the potential impact.
