【The 30th South China International Exhibition on Printing Industry (Printing South China 2024)】cum【The China International Exhibition on Label Printing Technology 2024 (Sino-Label 2024)】will be held on 4-6 March 2024 in Area A, China Import and Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou, P.R. China.
In response to the fast-paced development of the printing industry, Printing South China/ Sino-Label 2024 has prepared a wide range of exhibits to support enterprises to meet 3 major market trends: automation, sustainability, and integration.
1. Increasing the Adoption of Digital Printing
One of the show’s highlight is the increasing adoption of digital printing. “Smart Factory 4.0” Demonstration Zone will bring the whole packaging production line at the spot, from ERP order placement, typsetting, printing, post-print and even gift box making.
Aside, a plethora of core technologies and solutions about smart production software and digital printing can also be found at the fairground, such as Xunyue and Yinzhi Internet’s smart software; HP Indigo 6K digital printing press; Epson SurePress L-4733AW digital label printing machine; Honglitong digital label printing machine Label Smart, using the fully integrated Agfa Apogee pre-press process system to ensure the highest degree of reliability; Cron’s EZC smart digital ink supply system perfectly realizing the digitalization of traditional printing and precise ink supply. Besides, other companies like Krent, YinTech will introduce the latest technology and equipment at the exhibition. These digital technologies and solutions are beneficial to production efficiency, cost reduction, and product quality while promoting the digital transformation of the printing industry.
2. Expanding the Application Scope of Chinese Printing Technologies
Inkjet printing, as the major technology in digital printing, has been applied in many fields. A number of leading Chinese local brands will reveal the wide application of high-speed and high-definition inkjet equipment in books, labels, corrugating, packaging and other fields, such as Hotting multi-function digital inkjet printer, RuntianZhi J-350Pro extended six-color digital label printing press, Arojet ES-6700, Pulisi stainless steel series 550mm wide onepass UV inkjet Printing press etc. Upgraded local inkjet technology and expansion of application fields will surely bring more innovations and prospects to the printing industry.
3. More Intelligent Post-Press Equipment & Obvious Trend of Customization
As consumers' demand for personalized and customized products continues to increase, intelligence and customization of post-press equipment is becoming a more significant trend.
