Machine manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H) held its first Virtual EXPO to present technologies and products initially planned for industry shows, Interpack and Drupa, that have been postponed until spring 2021.


The live machine demonstrations included the NOVOFLEX II flexographic press highlighting the new RUBY IoT system for analyzing production data to optimize processes and the newly redesigned HELIOSTAR II gravure printing press.


The live technical sessions were targeted to package printers, industrial sack producers, paper bag manufacturers and film extruders. A session showcasing an All-PE film structure as an alternative to PET for standup pouch applications generated significant interest.


Other technical sessions covered flexible packaging topics, including sleeve handling solutions for flexographic presses, printing solutions for industrial sacks, heavy duty films for FFS sacks, remote service and paper sack production on machinery from W&H subsidiary, Garant Maschinen.


"It was so important for us to hold a Virtual EXPO and show our customers new technologies and applications that are available now and can help them run their production more efficiently,” said Peter Steinbeck, Managing Partner at W&H.


Over 2,000 visitors from 120 countries tuned in for live flexographic and gravure press demonstrations, technical sessions and virtual meetings.
