Heidelberg targets growth in online consumables store

Heidelberg is set to enter the new year with growth on the agenda as it pushes for an expansion in the proportion of sales brought in by its consumables eShop portal.

The online facility currently generates around 30% of total consumable orders and sales for Heidelberg and runs alongside a consignment stock system and traditional purchasing via representatives.

Esko takes a leadership role at SGIA Expo 2018

While exceptional speed and acceleration is one way to increase digital finishing table productivity, perhaps the more impactful way is to reduce downtime due to manual feeding and stacking. It not only reduces idle time; wherever you have manual material handling, you also have damage and waste, and the level of rework can be high. Esko explained how it is at the forefront of digital finishing automation during SGIA Expo 2018.

    3D Print UAE exhibition cum conference is a concept aimed at providing a broad scale platform for the manufacturing sector and consumer world across the ME region. 

    3D Print UAE gave an opportunity for the additive manufacturing experts from across the globe to converge on this regional platform to showcase their solutions, analyze the benefits and discuss the opportunities in the Middle East. It also provided the opportunity for a listen- in to first-hand experience from industry leaders, connect solutions for overcoming challenges in the field, and enhance the brand and  business portfolio. 

     Steffan Ritt, VP-head of global marketing and communications, SLM Solutions Group commented:  “Since, this is the first kind of event in this region, it has attracted less number of visitors. However, the visitors and participants were more positive. Overall, the show went fairly well for us but we would have been happier if the organizers promoted the event well in advance.”  SLM Solutions were one among the gold sponsors of the event.

    Most of visitors commented that these kinds of exhibitions and conference should be encouraged to create more awareness about the 3D printing in this region.
