Epple Experts Event 2018 Read more on page 5 Dear ink fans, A lot of packaging printers are viewing the future with optimism: however, success will not come of itself. Competition among the printing houses as well as the packaging materials themselves are just as much a part of the challenge as are the critical observations coming from the public. For these reasons only the printing houses who act with foresight will survive, even in the stable paper and cardboard printing markets. Sustainability and Print 4.0 demand active foresight and rethinking. In this edition of "the essential" we have put together an attractive information package concerning ink systems. They impress with high quality mass productions just as much as in sustainable print production. Service is an enormously important factor for us here: The Epple-Experts give you advice on market trends in the packaging print industry including legal framework conditions. Profit from our pioneering knowledge of the sensitive topic of ink migration, especially in foodstuff packaging. I wish you a most inspiring read.
