Hubergroup is hosting a presentation by Korbinian Steigenberger, junior product manager, on the topic of "Inside box - direct food contact". Steigenberger will talk about the special features of DFC with printing inks and coatings, as well as the regulatory requirements. He will present new opportunities for brand owners to make their packaging design attractive and at the same time meet the demand for more sustainable packaging with the use of DFC inks and coatings.

Steigenberger has been working in product management at Hubergroup for two years and holds a Master of Engineering in Packaging Technology from Munich University of Applied Sciences.
Followed by Steigenberger, Patrick Hübel, director global product and colour management, will present the licensed Hubergroup Digital Colour Communication (HDCC) system. The presentation will show how modern software solutions can be used to precisely capture, digitise and seamlessly exchange colour specifications for higher quality, speed and efficiency. Hübel will be presenting a way to create the visualisation of colour templates digitally. The digital expert has been with Hubergroup since 2005 and is one of the leading minds when it comes to digital colour communication, process optimisation and quality improvement.

Lars Hancke, manager of business development flexible packaging at Hubergroup, will present Recyclable printing ink solutions. Hancke will shed light on the role of printing inks in material recycling, as standard printing ink systems for packaging printing need to be re-evaluated against the background of new recycling guidelines. His presentation outlines the status and opens up innovative solutions.
Lecture "Recyclable Printing Ink Solutions", Thursday, 6 June 2024 at 4.00 pm.
