This year was in fact the 3rd year that AVA has been an exhibitor of FESPA. The well established digital print show took place in a very busy Berlin, with an extended list of over 700 exhibitors spanning across 10 halls … it’s no surprise that FESPA is now known as the show to go to for all things digital print!
An analysis from last year’s show which took place in Hamburg, revealed that 72% of respondents reported an increasing demand for fast turnaround and 74% of the respondents also identified that wallpaper and interior decor was an area of growth for their business. Both of these market findings are of course ideally suited to AVA’s specialised software, making FESPA the ideal show for us to continue to exhibit at, with plans already in place to attend again next year!
AVA PARTNERING HP
Earlier this year we visited the ever-growing HP Graphics Experience Centre in Sant Cuagt, Barcelona, which currently spans across an impressive 6000 square meters, and has plans to grow further! It was here where we saw the final preparations of the Latex 3800 Jumbo Roll Solution being put into place, ready for its unveiling in Berlin!
Of all the RIP and colour management vendors on the market, HP chose AVA to partner them to promote this latest machine. The L3800 is their most industrial Latex solution so far, targeting digital decor businesses with it’s large jumbo rolls (up to 1.2m diameter) and the ability to hold rolls up to 1.2 tons, this solution enables unattended, long run printing on a range of media that’s suitable for markets such as wallpaper, vinyl flooring and window blind manufacturers.
Click below for the full interview with HP’s Thomas Valjak and Emily Falconer from Premier Textiles, as they discuss their latest Latex developments and how AVA integrates with these.
