Print4all in Milan comes to a successful end

Innovations, creativity and the expansion of knowledge were to be the focus at the recently concluded Print4all trade fair in Milan – and so it was. The organizers had the ambitious goal of building on Grafitalia’s success and possibly exceeding it. From May 29th to June 1st, well-known companies from the printing industry met on the huge “Fiera milano” exhibition grounds to exchange ideas. The adhesive supplier Planatol was naturally present, represented by Alberto Bulling, Managing Director of Planatol Sifag Italy and Nuno Campos, Team Manager Export Sales at the headquarters in Rohrdorf, Bavaria.

The concept of the fair was designed to include an international conference, which is also part of the “The Innovation Alliance” project. Numerous 30-minute lectures on various topics such as “Printer governance” or “production techniques and strategies” were held there. In addition, discussions were held on topics such as “The future of printing companies”, “The future of the printing market” or “The future of the customer experience”.

Innovations with a view to sustainability, including energy-saving systems, technologies for optimizing all production stages and harmless and water-based materials, were a central component of the trade fair offerings. Another important topic was also to guarantee and strengthen the identity and recognition of products: solutions here will in future increasingly also be in the areas of finishing and individualisation.

This is exactly where Planatol scores, e.g. with its excellent technology “Planamelt”. The universally applicable adhesive meets high quality requirements, bonds even difficult papers and is isocyanate-free. Other innovative adhesives from Planatol, from commodities to individually customized solutions, were also in high demand at Print4all.
“I’m completely satisfied,” says Alberto Bulling. “In addition to many interesting new contacts and good discussions, I was particularly pleased to meet long-standing customers again,” Bulling continued.

The organizer of the fair also pointed out the overall very successful course of events after the end of the fair, Print4all has already established itself for the first time. It brought together the world’s leading brands in printing and communication and offered everything from small and large format digital printing to offset and gravure solutions.
