The Real Production Show is a three-way shared event on 24 September. It connects the Fujifilm Advanced Print Technology Center in Brussels where a job will be seen printed on the Fujifilm Jetpress 750S B2 inkjet press. The same job will then undergo coating at the Harris & Bruno plant in Germany before being seen at Highcon in Israel where the same job will be cut and creased into a finishing ready carton blank.
“Attendees will also be able to learn about the added value of digital printing and finishing from a long-time customer of both Fujifilm and Highcon,” says genial host Mark Stephenson. Attendees will also be able to request finished samples of what they have seen.
