Registration for the 40th anniversary edition of Labelexpo Europe, the world’s biggest label and package printing industry trade show, is now open. Set to take place once again at Brussels Expo from 24-27 September, this unmissable four-day event promises hundreds of live demonstrations of the latest technology, three brand new show features, three expert-led master classes and a workshop.

Esko, a global supplier of integrated hardware and software solutions for wide format digital print professionals, has announced the launch of a Motorized Roll Feeder for its Kongsberg C64 digital cutting table, developed to deliver accurate and efficient cutting of soft signage materials.
minating inaccurate cuts on soft signage jobs due to wrinkles, stretch distortion or imperfectly rewound rolls, the new Motorized Roll Feeder incorporates an active material feed. It avoids stretch by actively feeding the material to the cutting table, rather than pulling it. A dancer bar provides the correct tension with adjustable weights and an active edge correction allows for a steady straight feed, even if the roll is imperfectly rewound after printing. A spreader roll is also incorporated as a final checkpoint to smooth out any remaining wrinkles for precise finishing of soft signage jobs.

“Complex and iconic at the same time” – those were the words of the iF Design Award jury when praising the VariJET 106 digital press from Koenig & Bauer. They were especially convinced by the modern design language and clear colour contrasts. Accordingly, Koenig & Bauer was able to take home a “Gold Winner” trophy in the category “Product” after the grand award ceremony in Munich on 15th March.
