During this successful edition held in Duesseldorf from 16 - 23 October, the 3,330 Exhibitors presented their Innovations and technology solutions specially focused in recycling system, sustainable raw materials,and resource-saving processes. Approximately 225,000 visitors from 165 countries visited K 2019 and Uteco Group was certainly been part of this great success!
The Uteco Group, Booth B30 in Hall 4, was attended by hundreds of people every day from all over the world. Many countries were represented with visitors coming from nearby Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and some vistitors from as far away as India, China and the USA. Furthermore, a marked increase in the number of trade visitors from the Russian Federation, Japan and Brazil were also present.
Uteco Group showcased the Rainbow 4.0 LIVE twice a day with great success not only in attendance but also in the number of quotations requested. The solvent less “total green laminator” represented the main focus of this K edition, which were resource-saving processes, functionality and sustainability.
The Uteco Innovations presented at 360° in all printing and converting technologies were not only admired but in fact despite the current climate in world trade and the uncertain business climate in certain sectors of investment, Uteco was able to generate commitments on over 13 machines worth 18 million euros during the K Show which far exceeded the most confident expectations! Uteco’s product line was well represented with sales of machines such as coating & laminating, flexo (the core business), rotogravure and the continued strong demand of Uteco’s newest hybrid digital platform. The target markets Uteco has focused on for continued growth and success range from the Middle to the Far East (China for example), Europe, North America and Latin America. Uteco continues to emphasize even more our strong worldwide presence.
During the Show, live streaming cams connected the booth with Uteco Headquarters.
Many visitors had the unique opportunity to view two daily demos streamed live directly from the Uteco Plants and the ConverDrome® Machines that were showcased during these live demos was the Next 450 rotogravure machine, Sapphire Evo the latest hybrid digital machine, and the highly successful and bestselling flexo machine, the Onyx 810. Each machine displayed to everyone their potential and unique features.
Uteco further demonstrated its undeniable ability to be the ideal partner for all Converters who need highly technological solutions and innovations that range from coating& laminating to flexo and roto printing. Also the highly successful digital press Sapphire Evo has led to further progress and developments for the next important and highly anticipated event in Germany: Drupa 2020 ( Hall 10 - B20).
