Print Conference Provides Technological Focus

Print Conference Provides Technological Focus

Technology experts Jens Knoebl (Heidelberg) and Mitch Mulligan (Böttcher Systems) will between them outline the latest developments in both print process and carbon footprint reduction at the Ink In Our Veins annual printing industry conference.

Mr Knoebl, who has been involved in research and development, product management and special applications with Heidelberg for over 10 years, will deliver two sessions during the conference being hosted by PrintNZ at Wairakei near Taupo from October 13-15.

During Monday’s Print -- It’s More Than You Think workshop targeted at print-buyers and newcomers to the industry, Mr Knoebl will speak to the topic of “great things you can do with print” from 3.45pm-4.30pm. Then on the Wednesday between 11.40am-12.30pm, he will provide technical “know-how” on the latest in printing developments.

Mr Mulligan, who is a director of Böttcher Systems of Australia, will explore and demonstrate proven methods and strategies to achieving a sustainable future in the pressroom during his session from 1pm-1.50pm on the Tuesday. During the past 20 years Mr Mulligan has been involved in various technical sales roles, specialising in press product applications.

Delegates from all around New Zealand are expected to attend the Ink In Our Veins conference, representing all sectors of the New Zealand print industry. Places are still available for the conference sessions and for the golf and fishing trips planned for Monday October 13, but people are urged to make their bookings as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment.
