Innovation Day

End of March Janoschka was hosting its first Innovation Day at its headquarters with numerous customers and representatives of the prepress supply chain.

Only a few weeks prior to the industry’s biggest fair in Düsseldorf, Janoschka was hosting its first Innovation Day for Tobacco Packaging in its headquarters in Kippenheim/DE.

Guests of the exclusive Drupa preview were clients and partners of the supply chain for packaging printing in the tobacco market. Innovative laser technologies for cylinder production for rotogravure printing and embossing, RFID solutions for cylinder tracking, in-house UV drying and the state-of-the-art software innovation CrossProof for 3D simulation of embossing forms were on the agenda. IPT International Plating Technologies was featuring the suject of sustainable trends for engraving materials. The company tour gave an insight into the manufacture of print and embossing formes with a yearly production volume of close to 45.000 cylinders.

The highlight of the event was the very first live demo of Janoschka’s innovative rotogravure sleeve system to the trade public: proROTO system. A sleeve comprised of a thin metallic layer with a plastic polymer layer, called proROTO sleeve, provides the optimal properties and conditions for a lower-cost and weight-reduced solution. The system is supported by a novel mandrel concept with CFRP components and an adapter.

There will be a daily Live Demo of the system at 2pm, on Drupa stand 3D54.

The Innovation Day for Tobacco Packaging took place under the auspices of the Janoschka Academy, a new Janoschka institution offering customers, marketing managers, printers, students and employees a very wide variety of formats for further personal advancement.
