    Open House for innovation: Esko

Esko is hosting an Open House at the end of the month, designed to highlight how its innovations are enabling label and flexo printers to meet modern day challenges.

The company says the label and flexo industry is changing fast, with shorter print runs, shorter lead times, digitisation, and the aim for superior quality. It says to stay ahead, printers need to innovate and automate, and at the open house in Melbourne, they will discover a new range of Esko innovations. Attendees will also receive a product update helping to meet the demands of an ever-changing industry.

In addition, the Open House will also have the latest flexo quality print produced on the award-winning CDI Crystal XPS platemaker.

Speaking to PKN, Scott Thompson, regional marketing and channels manager at Esko said, “There has been a great response so far. It seems to be the thing that people are looking for. All are welcome on the day.” He adds it will be “the first of many” that Esko is planning on running.

The Esko Open House takes place Wednesday 26 June 8am-noon at the Danaher Leica Building, 495 Blackburn Road, Mt Waverley VIC 3149. Click here to register.
