Italy-based ZDue hosted an event 21 – 23 February 2023, that was dedicated to shaping the future of the flexographic print and packaging industry in Italy, Europe and beyond.
Delivered across three-days, the convention, held at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, brought together more than four hundred industry representatives from the flexible, corrugated, tissue and label markets, alongside major market retailers and brand owners.
The Future of Flexo event was delivered in collaboration with Reproflex3 – ZDue’s international technology partner – I&C Gama Group and Tamburini Srl. It featured insightful presentations, various case studies and several panel discussions with leading industry figures from manufacturing and converting.
A key focus was new technologies designed to solve issues and pain points currently facing the flexible, corrugated, label and tissue sectors. This included discussion on new strategies for primary packaging and increased sustainability, capitalising on big data and machine learning, together with maximising new opportunities in the flexo process through pioneering print technologies like ProjectBlue, BlueEdge and Vortex.
The final day of the convention was dedicated to the corrugated packaging industry and attracted more than 200 attendees.
