Durst has been awarded the Bronze Innovation Award by FEFCO, the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers, at its 2015 Technical Seminar in Barcelona. This bi-annual event is the central platform for the European corrugated cardboard industry to exchange information on the latest trends and market developments.
Under this year’s motto, ‘Corrugated 4.0’, new technology concepts and processes were analysed that have the potential to allow more sustainable, more flexible and more efficient responses to future demands. Over 1000 delegates were inspired by the presentation of ‘Durst Water Technology-Corrugated Printing Machine’ by Wolfram Verwüster, Segment Manager Durst Corrugated Packaging and Displays.
Durst Water Technology is a long-term strategy designed to offer digital printing systems with water-based inks as an alternative to solely UV and solvent-based printing systems. Durst has already accomplished a number of pioneering achievements in the large format sector and ramped up the use of environmentally friendly and odour-free products at the point of sale.
For corrugated cardboard printing, Durst has been developing digital printing systems for a number of years. At Drupa 2016, Durst will be launching a new high-performance, single-pass printing machine that uses water-based inks.
