Industry is being digitised, and Piacenza is the crossroads of this innovation


Industry is being digitised, and Piacenza is the crossroads of this innovation

A journey through the capital of Italy's machine tools district to take stock of the digitisation of a strategic sector in the Italian economy. For the 17 April 2019 edition, Italy 4.0, the Class CNBC show hosted by Andrea Cabrini, left the studio for a visit to Piacenza, a city which has once again proved itself to be the crossroads of Italian machine tool manufacturing and mechanical engineering (you can view the episode at

With 115 companies employing over 2,000 people in the sector, Piacenza indeed boasts the highest concentration of machinery manufacturing companies in Italy. The area gives rise to innovations with a mix of expertise and a historical industrial presence which has made the town one of the major players in the industry 4.0 revolution. It is in Piacenza that Siemens’ TAC - Technical Application Centre - is located, putting enterprises in direct contact with new technology since 2011. The TAC was turned into a TV studio for a day to host a debate on the development of technologies in this sector.

The speakers were Giuliano Busetto, Head of Digital Industries, Siemens Italia’ new operational division for the digital industry, and president of Federazione Anie; the anagers of two of the area's most important companies - Vincenzo Cerciello, technical director of Nordmeccanica, and Saverio Gellini, managing director of Mandelli Sistemi; Sandro Salmoiraghi, president of Salmoiraghi and president of Federmacchine; and Michele Monno, Professor at the Polytechnic University of Milan's Department of Mechanical Engineering and director of MUSP, the Piacenza consortium specialised in machine tools and production systems.

IMAGE TO PRINT - 20/21 March 2019

Printing Technology & Innovation Days for Flexible Packaging
Jakarta, Indonesia | 20/21 March 2019

The “Image-to-Print” roadshow set up by Janoschka, Nordmeccanica, Rossini,
Siegwerk and Windmöller & Hölscher had again invited the packaging market
to a further “Image-to-Print” event. The roadshow had its recent stop-over in
Jakarta on March 20/21. After 2011 this was the second conference for the
Indonesian emerging market.

The touring event, which has been running with huge success since 2009, is dedicated to
supporting local printers, brand owners and the finishing industry. The workshops provide an
insight into the best practices of gravure and flexographic printing and highlight global trends
in the packaging industry.

The workshop’s focal point is on the requirements and conditions of the local market. The
program focuses specifically on market developments, strategies and technical innovations
in printing inks and printing tools as well as printing and laminating machines for gravure and
flexographic applications.

Besides presentations and think tank discussions, the agenda of the two-days conference
offered the more than 200 guests a visit to PT. Siegwerk Indonesia, a leading worldwide
manufacturer of printing inks for packaging. The visit provided insights into the production
and development of printing ink solutions for sustainable packaging.

Successful brand management with sustainable colours was the topic of the additionally
provided workshop class „Print Color Management - Fingerprint & Profiling“. Siegwerk and
Janoschka experts gave a lecture on the most important asset of a brand, namely colour,
and its consistent printing and hence sustainable presentation - no matter on what
supermarket shelf in the world.

The symposium in Jakarta is the twentieth stop for the very successful Image-to-Print
roadshow, which has already visited Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Brazil, Argentina, Dubai,
Mexico, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Philippines, China, South Africa
and India.

Nordmeccanica machinery and Novacote adhesives by COIM Group, together for an adhesive technology solution.

Piacenza, Italy, January 30th, 2019. Nordmeccanica and COIM Group joined forces in a cooperation targeted to the development of an adhesive technology suitable for high production and quality performance in the lamination of high barrier structures in flexible packaging. It is known that in Solvent Less lamination there are production speed limitations once converting barrier compounds. It is the case of metallized films, foil and polymers highly impermeable to oxygen and moisture.

The development of a technology that combines the benefit of a proper formulation as well as of a proper coating technique has been the inspiration of the cooperation between the two industry leaders. The outcome of the research and development project have been presented to the two EMEA sales networks at a meeting organized on January 30th at the research center of Nordmeccanica.

The outstanding optical and bond qualities achieved during the demonstration of the new technology have impressed all attendees. The new technology will be officially presented to the industry; all details will be released.

COIM is an Italian Group with more than 1 mil $ turnover. Since 1962 COIM Group has been developing and selling speciality chemical products for the manufacturing industry. COIM Group is present in 4 continents with more than 1.000 skilled employees in 5 manufacturing plants and 20 Sales Offices. COIM Group, under the brand Novacote®, produces and markets a wide range of Adhesives and Coatings for the flexible packaging market. More information can be found at
