The guests attended various workshops on current market topics and Epple’s ink systems. Latvian printing experts paid particular attention to the topics of ink production, sustainability, environmental and product safety.
“The representatives from the leading Latvian printing houses for packaging and book printing already know our products well and appreciate the quality we provide. Therefore, we were delighted about their visit to Neusäß and that they could share their implementation experience with us,” said Gerhard Janssen, head of sales at Epple.
As regional sales manager, Benjamin Bornfleth knows Latvia well, as he advises customers in the Baltic States together with sales partner Labiink, Riga. “Printers and their international customers appreciate the performance of our inks,” said Bornfleth. “Here in Neusäß you will learn on site how we work on this quality every day. At the same time, the event is great for professional exchange.”
A highlight of the Latvia Printers Days event was the live presentation of the new sustainable PURe ink system in Epple’s printing facility. Substrates specially selected by the customers were used to generate proofs, as well as carrying out quality tests, like abrasion tests for example.
The printers were able to inform themselves in workshops, about measuring technologies and standardization of color profiles (Comparison Fogra 39 to 51) among others, as well as on the topics of coloring and quality assurance. The manufacturing process of Epple printing inks was demonstrated on a company tour for the Latvian visitors.
