Fespa sees the launch of the Fujifilm Acuity Ultra Hybrid LED, which prints both roll-to-roll and flatbed, and which Fujifilm says will become an industry workhorse, able to handle a vast range of work.

Durst has used Fespa to launch a new 670sqm an hour printer, the P5 350 HSR, and to add robotics to its P5 family, to both load and unload the boards.

Automation is the theme of the Zünd stand, with the launch of a new, integrated system for autonomous, pallet-to-pallet production, and the demonstration of a new robot pick and sort system.

Global wide-format print show Fespa has opened its doors, welcoming sign, display, promotional products and garment print businesses from around the world to the expo, where the focus is on process optimisation.

Fujifilm is inviting all Australian and New Zealand printers attending Fespa in Munich next week to its stand at 4pm on Thursday, for a tour, refreshments and networking time.

Global wide format show Fespa is launching a new Personalisation Experience event at the upcoming expo, and heralding the return of its Sustainability Spotlight, World Wrap Masters, and the Awards.

As Fespa Global prepares to open its doors, Debbie Keegan looks at the forces driving the monumental shift to on-demand interior decor, providing a world of opportunity for printers.

Fespa Australia will now focus on attracting and retaining talent to the local sign and display industry. It has retained its current board, and has appointed IVE exec Bianca Martin as its public relations director.
