Mark Pearson, Holfeld Tool & Die Ltd: "We found Labelexpo Europe 2013 to be a lot busier than last time with a good number of visitors from throughout Europe and North/South America in particular. We had a lot of interest in cutting tools to produce folding cartons and also in our special long life HDT coated flexible dies. A number of specialist converters (not label printers) came on the stand to discuss their solid die requirements when producing medical and automotive parts."
Ronen Samuel, HP Indigo and Inkjet Digital Press Solutions EMEA: "Labelexpo Europe 2013 was a great show for HP. Not only did we close many important customer deals and launch new capabilities, including our new silver ink for the HP Indigo WS6000 series, but we also saw huge interest in our new packaging portfolio and in the many opportunities that digital printing presents to brands. Marking HP's largest Labelexpo presence to date, this year we had our own hall to accommodate our broad press portfolio, and to enable us to integrate HP partners. The aim was to demonstrate 'end-to-end' digital solutions, for businesses looking for innovative technologies to support them in their future digital investments. This approach worked very well for us, and we look forward to progressing in the coming weeks and months, the many discussions started at the show."
Roy Burton, Impression Technology Europe: "With an ever growing range of printers and finishing equipment for the short run digital label sector, Impression Technology Europe's commercial and technical team welcomed in excess of 200 customers and dealers from 49 countries worldwide to a busy stand at Labelexpo Europe 2013. Pride of place went to the lamination and digital cutting systems, Eclipse LF3 (220mm web width) and the newly introduced LF330 (330mm web width), both developed and manufactured in the UK. Crowds were also drawn to the impressive in-line labeling solution comprising the Memjet powered Rapid X2 printer, the Rapid D2 laminator/semi-rotary die cutter and the RS280 slitter/re-winder running at speeds up to 18 metres per minute. With desktop printers Rapid X1 (inkjet) and ComPress LP4 (LED dry toner) and a choice of un-winders and re-winders, ITE is building a formidable reputation for comprehensive, economical and reliable solutions for labeling professionals. "
Leanne Beattie, Industrial Inkjet Ltd: "Labelexpo Europe 2013 was an extremely successful show for Industrial Inkjet Ltd. Our stand was extremely busy all day every day. We were overwhelmed with the amount of positive feedback received from both exhibitors and show attendees for our new 1200dpi color demonstration unit. IIJ counted over 200 good quality leads with four firm orders received at the show, and many more imminent sales opportunities. It was clear at that this year's Labelexpo Europe that customers are no longer "window shopping" but are actually coming to the show fully ready to buy. IIJ's Digital Label Module for flexo presses is seen as a very sensible and economic alternative to a large stand-alone inkjet press. With our print speeds of 80metres/minute the DLM was very warmly received."
Serena Inglese, INGLESE s.r.l.: "This year's edition of Labelexpo Europe has been a real profitable one: we got more than 50 new leads coming from all over the world, receiving a lot of interest in our equipment, particularly in our plate making processors and lines and our automatic machines to clean the plates after the printing. During this show, we also met with good success for our roll-to-roll digital printing machine INGLESE DP210. We got great satisfaction out of our activity as agents in Italy of ESKO, promoting full software solutions, Digital imaging systems CDI and related technologies (HD/full HD) among our customers also during this show. Finally, Labelexpo Europe has been a good occasion to strengthen the relationship with our commercial partners and already consolidated customers, too. We think that Labelexpo is undoubtedly the most important window for us on the Italian and international label printing field."
