MM Karton at the Most Important Industry Events
17.07.2014 - Fairs
MMK was represented at two events in the shape of RosUpack, the largest packaging fair in Russia, and the Heidelberg Info Days at the printing machine manufacturer‘s, „Heidelberger“, Germany; two events which differ considerably in terms of size and audience, but whose resumés have always been unambiguously impressive.
June 17 to 20, 2014, Moscow
RosUpack, the largest packaging fair in Russia, CIS countries and Eastern Europe, was held in Moscow from June 17 to 20, 2014. Over 700 companies from 38 different countries, among them almost all the major folding carton manufacturers as well as cellulose, paper and cartonboard producers, presented new production technologies, innovative techniques and trends, thereby reflecting the whole diversity of innovative products for packaging solutions.
MM Karton was the communicative hub with its central, well-designed stand which attracted numerous business partners and trade visitors, and during the fair, had a dialogue with over 100 different companies. The main topics of conversation were the current situation in the packaging industry, the present mood of the market and the further development of the sector in Russia. AccurateTM, the new white GC2 quality from the Dutch mill in Eerbeek, generated lively interest among many visitors, and the announcement that FOODBOARDTM will be supplied from the beginning of 2015, was met with enthusiasm. A new trend emerged due to high demand: the subject of „highly decorative, corrugated packaging solutions“!
As the leading supplier of white top coated liner qualities in the Russian market, MM Karton is best placed to meet this demand.
Heidelberg Info Days
June 4 to 5, 2014, Heidelberg
What is behind the innovations, and how will customers benefit from them? What new opportunities and potential will materialise? The Heidelberg Info Days at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Germany) try to find answers to these questions. Designed as a series of events on different topics from the areas of technology, services, consumables and special applications, this year‘s Info Days focused on the subject of „Top Performance for the Packaging Industry“.
Over 250 customers and folding cartonboard experts experienced a world premiere: the offset printing machines, Speedmaster XL 145 with a top performance of 18,000 sheets and the Speedmaster XL 162 with 16,500 sheets, were on display for the first time in the Wiesloch-Walldorf location. MMK cartonboard qualities were used as the printing material. The GC2 grade, KromopakTM 300 gsm was printed with an image from the cosmetics industry, and the GD2 grade Multicolor MirabellTM 300 gsm ran with a pizza motif. The further converting steps using the latest generation of glueing machines and die-cutting machines were then demonstrated, and the following great result was unanimously confirmed: both cartonboard qualities and both motifs showed excellent printing and converting results!
