“With the growing trend and customer demand for personalisation and customisation, technological developments in different sectors, and the consolidation of printing companies around the world, the borders between markets are becoming less distinct and have started to overlap”, comments Bert Schoonderbeek, Managing Director, Contiweb.

With a complete ancillary offering in heatset web offset, Contiweb has been developing ancillaries for digital inkjet web production since 2014. In collaboration with HP, Contiweb launched a series of unwinder/splicers and rewinders at drupa 2016, designed to be entirely modular to provide customers with an easy path to full automation at either end of the press line. As part of a strategic partnership with DG press ServiceS, Contiweb acquired the intellectual property (IP) of the Thallo web offset packaging press which has been sold worldwide. The Contiweb Thallo easily accommodates flexo, gravure or digital units for hybrid configurations that maximise flexibility and efficiency for packaging producers.
