1. PDFMarkz: California-based Markzware has launched a new standalone version of its PDF previewing and conversion tool – PDFMarkz – that now works with additional page make-up packages. The application converts PDF documents to Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Affinity Publisher, IDML and more. PDFMarkz can be downloaded from its official website.

2. Arizona 135 GT: Canon has launched an entry level UV-LED flatbed targeted at new entrants into wide-format. The 34.2-sqm/hr Arizona 135 GT runs a fixed CMYK plus white and can handle 1.25x2.5-m boards up to 50.8-mm thick. It’s also field upgradable to a roll-to-roll hybrid that can handle 2.2m wide reels up to 50kg, including thin and heat sensitive media.

3. Ideal 56: Duplo has expanded its portfolio with the addition of the new Ideal 56 guillotine. Compared to previous machines, the programmable Ideal 56 is 40% faster during the cutting process, has 50% higher maximum pressing pressure, and the backgauge is now 100% faster, at up to approximately 100-mm/sec. The machine’s cutting length is 560-mm and the cutting height is 80-mm. 

4. FullVision: HB Fuller has launched FullVision Equipment and Data-Analytics Consulting Service for bookbinding. It is an industry-breakthrough digital platform for bindery quality control, designed to improve efficiency, optimise production, and control costs. Once installed, the FullVision web-based equipment gathers data on adhesive use and alert the operator of an issue in real-time. 

5. UHT 2.0 portfolio: Tetra Pak’s new UHT 2.0 portfolio with OneStep technology and Tetra Pak E3/speed hyper reduce water and steam consumption, creating less waste water and therefore also lowering the cost of its removal for dairy manufacturers. Adding a water filtering station unit to Tetra Pak E3/speed hyper helps recover 5,500 litres of water per filling machine running hour (up to 95%), while contributing to lower water consumption.
