The analog-to-digital transformation is sweeping through the sign, display and corrugated markets as sign providers and corrugated converters look beyond their production equipment to find an automated end-to-end workflow that ensures faster time to market, fewer errors and improved profitability. Waste can be created everywhere; via complex manual steps, equipment idle time, incorrect material handling or lack of workflow control. Many providers are seeking to eliminate waste and streamline the process from a design request coming in to shipping out a product. At FESPA 2018, they will find the path to this improved productivity and profitability at Esko Stands 3.2-C48 and 5.2-D30 during the 15 to 18 May event in Berlin.

Esko is pleased to announce that its XPS Crystal flexo plate Exposure Unit has received the prestigious 2018 EFIA Gold Award for Technical Innovation. The EFIA Awards were held at The Vox Centre in Birmingham, UK on Wednesday 14th March. The Gold Award was presented to Robert Bruce of Esko by Paula Birch, Sales Director at Parkside Flexibles.
