Editor’s Note

Eskandar Jahanbani Editor in Chief

Printing industry in the region is on fire. Everybody is gearing up for the Gulf Pack and Print 2011 show. In this issue, we bring to our readers the second part of our extensive pre show report, covering the technologies to be displayed by major players as well as by small companies during the GPP. Some very exciting equipments and solutions will also be on display in the show. However our major highlight in this issue is an exclusive interview with Bernhard Schreier, CEO and Chairman of Heidelberg. The exclusive interview was conducted during a recent visit to Heidelberg in Germany. This interview is followed by another interview with the Chief Operating Officer and president of Eastman Kodak Company, Philip Faraci, who visited Dubai for the first time. These two top executives and decision makers from the world of offset and digital offer some valuable insights about the future of graphic arts and the technologies that both companies offer to printers. Heidelberg’s recent announcement on their global strategic cooperation with Ricoh is a clear sign of where the printing industry is heading to. On the other hand the efforts that digital equipment manufacturers such as Kodak are making to find a strong foothold in the commercial printing sector also proves that both digital and offset sectors are desperately in need of each other. The offset vs. digital narrative has evolved into offset next to digital concept. In the future both technologies will be indispensable for commercial printers. On the other hand full integration in print houses will be a necessity rather than be documented as a future project. Through theses interviews we try to get a better grasp of what the future has in store for printers. And it seems that in order to capture the future, printers have to come out of their comfort zone and embrace the digital technology.

Heidelberg’s global strategic cooperation with Ricoh is a clear sign of where the industry is heading

Egypt: Uprising Adds to the Printers’ Woes

ME Printer March 2011

Private and public sector incur millions as loss due to the deteriorating situation in the country

8

Magdi El Badawy, Vice President of the General Union of Printing and Media in a recent statement said that printing presses in the region incurred a heavy loss that amounted to millions of Egyptian pounds. Talking to Youm7 newspaper he said that, the majority of printing

press workers in the private sector are working on temporary basis that affects their regular income. Government presses are also badly affected as newspapers are printed on a low-budget and the national newspapers going almost zero in advertising has led to a reduction in the number of pages and copies. Satellite channels also contribute to this loss with more and more people watching the television for direct coverage rather than waiting another day to read the news from the papers. He said that majority of the printing institutions and even the national institutions are deprived of any incentives due to this scenario. Recently the Egyptian Chamber of Printing Industries asked commercial agents and importers to maintain price stability and not exploit the circumstances in the country by hiking prices.

The Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics in Egypt announced that the total losses reported in the sectors of manufacturing, construction and tourism account to more than 10 billion pounds, while Mamdouh Al-Wali commented in Al-Ahram newspaper that the losses are much higher than estimated and range between 55 and 100 billion pounds. Egypt has gone through a lot of economic setbacks in the production of goods and services. Disruption of internet and telecommunication services, suspension of trading stock, paralyzed transport and tourism as well as open robbery took Egypt by storm after the outbreak of the revolution. A massive protest rally recently overthrew the President of Egypt, Muhammad Hosni Mubarak, while the army took the reins of the country.

Egypt: First Heidelberg LFP Installed in Mosbah The press aims to double production with the new Speedmaster XL 162

From right to left: Eng. Adel Allam the CEO of Youssef Allam & Co. , the Heidelberg agent in Egypt, Khaled Mosbah the CEO of Mosbah Press, & Dr. Ali Makari the Area Sales Manager of Heidelberg.

The first large-format press in the Middle East from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) will be installed at the Mosbah Packaging Press in Cairo that was established back in 1964 by its founder Abdel Moneim Mosbah. The five-colour press with coating unit will be put in the new 6,000 m2 production building of the press. “We are impressed by the high quality and above all the outstanding productivity of this press,” said Khaled Mosbah, who is charge of the family business since 1998. The company produces high-quality folding cartons for Egypt’s food and confectionery industry. The pressroom is also equipped with two

new Speedmaster CD 102 and a Speedmaster SM 74 and a GTO 52. Around 20,000 metric tons of cardboard are printed each year in a three-shift operation. “We are obtaining everything for the new press, installation, service and training from a single source,” continued Mosbah. Heidelberg has been working closely with distributor Youssef Allam & Co. for years in the region. “In taking this new press into service, we are aiming for strong growth and looking to print up to 40,000 metric tons of cardboard each year,” says a confident Mosbah. Launched during Drupa 2008, the large format presses are a thing of interest to industrial-scale commercial and packaging print shops. Speedmaster XL 145 and XL 162 presses are based on the technological platform of the XL 105 and delivers impressive benefits

such as faster makeready times, less paper waste, consistent high print quality, good flexibility with a range of substrates and high availability. The minimizing of make ready times unique to this class is achieved through simultaneous washing of the blanket and impression cylinder and fully automated plate changes in just a few minutes. Adel Allam, CEO of Youssef Allam & Co. commented, “We’re very proud to have this machine for the first time in Egypt. We had a long history of mutual confidence with Mosbah Press, always helping them to strengthen their marketing competitiveness, production, quality and efficiency.” Last but not the least, the Prinect print shop workflow enables this format class to be fully integrated in an endto-end solution. Machines in this series are also available as perfecting presses.

Jack Dean

Waves Printing Press in Kuwait in a recent deal purchased a Presstek Dimension 800 Pro-AL CtP machine from AGE Graphic Equipments. This CtP machine with Auto loading is the first of its kind that will be installed in Kuwait. The machine is sold and serviced by AGE Graphic Equipments, who are the distributor for Presstek in the Gulf region. Waves Printing Press went for the Presstek Dimension 800 Pro-AL to meet the workloads and printing needs within Kuwait. Presstek plates give fine details

and they not only address the current work load but they also have been able to increase their capacity due to the speed of the CtP. Jayakrisnan Valluru, Sales Manager of AGE, commented, “This installation is highly prestigious for us and we are delighted that Presstek’s solutions matched the specific requirements of the customer. The whole installation process was smooth and the CtP is delivering beyond customer expectations. The machine is a true testament to the quality

The company has trained its sales and technical staff and created a reputation for its after sales service that is known throughout the region. We believe this is the first of the many installs that we will see in the Kuwait market as a result of our partnership with AGE.”

Egypt: Ministry of Defense Installs Presstek 34DI-UV Digital Offset New Presstek Distributor Adler Gruppe Signs First Agreement Presstek Inc. in a recent deal delivered a Presstek 34DI-UV four colour digital offset press and a Presstek 9920 single colour offset press to the Egyptian Ministry of Defense. The presses would be installed in the new Cairo facility. Adler Gruppe, Presstek’s recently appointed Egypt based distributor would see on to the service of the machines. Presstek 34DI-UV was selected by the Ministry to cater to its security printing needs within the Egyptian military. The machine delivers precise registration and has the ability to print fine details. Durability and instant drying of UV inks are an added advantage for these mission-crucial applications. The machine has a maximum sheet size of 340mm X 460mm (13.39” x 17.72”) and supports 3001pi and FM screening. Presstek 9920 offset press was purchased for the production of general printing and for overprinting spot colours or mettalics required on work produced using the 34DIUV. Impressed by the performance of the newly acquired presses, the Ministry of Defense has decided to create similar facilities in other locations this year.

Mohamed Shoukry, CEO of Adler Gruppe commented, “This is a highly prestigious installation and we are delighted that Presstek’s solutions matched the specific requirements of the Ministry of Defense. The installation was smooth and the presses are delivering beyond customer expectations. This is a testament to the quality and performance of Presstek systems.” Jack Dean, Presstek Area Sales Manager added, “This success is due to the hard work Adler Gruppe has put into represent-

ing Presstek in Egypt. The company has trained its sale and technical staff and created a showroom in Cairo to provide current and potential customers with an ideal location to fully test the potential of Presstek products including DI presses and the Presstek Dimension Pro 800 chemistry free platemaker that will be installed in the near future. We believe this is the first of many installations that we will see in the Egyptian market as a result of our partnership with Adler Gruppe.”

Improving their work efficiency, Maisloon Printing Press in Sharjah acquired a Heidelberg Suprasetter A75 CtP thermal with Glunz & Jensen Raptor 68 Offline plate

processor. The machine uses Prinect MetaDimension RIP and Prinect SignaStation Imposition Software. Maisloon currently hosts a range of Heidelberg machines

including a GTO 52-1, a GTO 52, a GTO 52-2, a PM 74-2, a SM 52-4, a GTOZ-52(2c) and a Platen in their press. The press also works on a Polar Mohr 115 and a MultiCut SPR 115H. The company is practically a Heidelberg house. One of the main features of the small- and medium-format Suprasetter is how compact it is. According to Heidelberg, whilst the basic manual feed CtP has a very small footprint, a Suprasetter A75 with auto plate loading system is by far the smallest platesetter in its class. The small footprint allows easy integration in most print shops.

Edition - Ricoh`s high speed color digital press with Ricoh PxPTM Chemical toner, as well as appropriate future production printing offerings in Ricoh’s pipeline. The global strategic cooperation, which includes Ricoh services and support, will start in April 2011. The first markets will be UK and Germany with a phased rollout to follow in other geographies with thecompletion targeted for Drupa 2012. The Ricoh and Heidelberg partnership will support them in growing their core offset business and enable them to offer more flexibility towards their clients using Ricoh’s latest digital print technology.

Shiro Kondo, President and CEO, Ricoh Company, Ltd. says, “In today’s climate it is important that commercial printers have the right tools to be versatile and meet both long and short run requests.” “With this new partnership we will also address customer demands in the broad spectrum of hybrid print applications, i.e. the combination of offset and digital printing within a single print product,” says Bernhard Schreier, CEO of Heidelberg. As a world premiere Heidelberg will display the new strategic partnership with Ricoh at the digi:media tradeshow from the 7th to 9th of April 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Bernhard Schreier CEO and chairman of the world’s biggest press manufacturer says both digital and offset will be part of the game in the future


Recuperating after a big fall, Heidelberg Chairman Bernhard Schreier in an exclusive interview with ME Printer, which took place inside Heidelberg’s headquarter in the city of Heidelberg, opens up on the path to recovery, the pay off of loans, company’s re-entry into the commercial digital printing market and the hottest trends in the industry. cial programme facility was fully repaid. This reduction in financial debt has substantially lowered the interest burden for us. Half of this remaining 900 million credit lines as of today are still guaranteed by the State, maturing by the mid of 2012. Moreover, the capital increase has given Heidelberg a stable capital structure. On the business side, Heidelberg’s goal is to break even operatively. That means EBIT (Earnings before Interest and Tax) should be at least zero by the end of this fiscal year. Our order intake is now up by 25 per cent and sales have gone up to around 18 per cent. All these signs show that the industry is picking up and we are set to reach our goal. Though, I have said so, it’s not a general condition everywhere else in the industry. North America is still falling back; there is not much interest in investing heavily in that region, while in other regions especially China, Latin America and Brazil there are much activities for investments. Today, I have mixed feelings regarding the Middle East though, especially with regards to the current political situation.

You have an ongoing restructuring plan. Based on this new plan, Heidelberg has now only three divisions; Heidelberg Equipment, Heidelberg Services, and Heidelberg Financial Services. In which way has the restructuring process helped you to overcome the recession? The restructuring as such is finished. As you are aware, we used to be a 3.8 billion Euro turnover company before the financial crisis

ME Printer March 2011

You have paid off your government loan ahead of the initially anticipated 2012 deadline. Does this mean that you are back on track and the crisis is over for Heidelberg? It is true that we have paid off the loan from KfW (Reconstruction Loan Corporation) but we still have support from the State. In summer 2009 Heidelberg established a comprehensive financing package to stabilize the company’s financing structure, addressing a convertible bond coming due as well as re-organizing bilateral facilities. Heidelberg concluded a financing package with strong support received under the German economic stimulus package for the period up to the middle of 2012. The three facilities signed in 2009 for the amount of EUR 1.4 billion have in the meantime been substantially reduced through the net proceeds from the capital increase of EUR 400 million as well as via voluntary prepayments due to a strong Free Cash Flow to approx. EUR 900 million in aggregate as at 31 December 2010. The KfW spe-

Heidelberg’s goal is to break even operatively. That means EBIT (Earnings before Interest and Tax) should be at least zero by the end of this fiscal year

started. The recession dropped us to almost 2.3 billion Euro turnover and a drop like this could hardly be compensated by internal restructuring alone. But we worked hard to reduce our breakeven point from over 3 billion to less than 2.5 billion, which means that we had to take out fixed costs of almost 600 million in total. Doing this, we unfortunately had to reduce our headcount as well and had to streamline our internal processes. With the new divisional structure we are able to serve our customers efficiently and have laid the path for future growth. Based on a study by Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization (PRIMIR), by 2015 there will be a 0.3% drop in the page volume of analogue printing and a growth of digital printing by 15.9%. Meanwhile by 2015, Heidelberg is projecting a growth of approximately 1% a year based on the lim-

ited decrease of sheetfed offset print revenues in 2009 and the positive print market outlook in developing countries. If these projections are correct then the growth of analogue printing is quite disappointing, what gives you incentive to still invest in conventional offset printing and bringing new presses to the market? It is difficult to describe the whole development in the graphic arts industry with just one single figure. Let’s open the scope a little bit wider: Yes - the printing industry in emerging countries is facing healthy growth rates, while the industry in industrialized countries is changing. At the same time the packaging print market is becoming more stable with higher growth rate projections compared to the commercial print market. However it’s a changing world and we have to adapt to the changes. This is why it is important for Heidelberg to broaden our footprint in the packaging market as well as to offer the right solution for our clients from all over the world. Does this mean we should stop investing in offset technology? Not at all. Look for example at our latest Speedmaster machine that we introduced at IPEX: The CX 102. We designed this machine to combine the best of the XL and CD product range in order to meet the changed requirements in the industry. Meanwhile, almost one year after the introduction, it is proven that this was the right way to go: In emerging countries this machine is accepted as the perfect way for industrialized printers to set themselves apart from their competition. In the industrialized countries the CX is for example an ideal step for commercial printers entering the packaging market. Our claim is to offer versatile solutions to our customers and this is why we are doing the same things on the digital route as well, offering solutions that are versatile, to meet the printers and print buyers’ needs. During Ipex, you announced that by the end of 2010 Heidelberg is planning to get back into the commercial digital printing market and that you will announce your digital partner. Stephan Plenz has announced

that the company is preparing a solution consisting of a digital press, Anicolor sheetfed litho press and a software controller for parceling jobs between the two, why do you think this system will be your winning formula for capitalizing on digital printing market? For us going back into digital means to offer our clients important additional flexibility. Combining the Anicolor Technology with Digital Printing enables commercial printers always to choose the technology that fits best to the actual situation in reference to production cost, print quality and delivery time. Not having this flexibility, printers easily run into trouble to produce something on a printing device that is only a second choice. This is of course critical in today’s competitive business environment. This is why we strongly believe that our combined digital and offset solution will bring a real benefit to the market and why we have just recently announced a global strategic cooperation with Ricoh. As a first step, both companies agreed to enter into a global distribution contract for Ricoh’s Production Printing Product portfolio. This agreement enables us to sell Ricoh’s latest color digital press, the Ricoh Pro C901 Graphic Arts Edition - Ricoh`s high speed color digital press with Ricoh PxP Chemical toner, as well as appropriate future production printing offerings in Ricoh’s pipeline. The global strategic cooperation, which includes Ricoh services and support, will start in April 2011. The first markets will be UK and Germany with a phased rollout to follow in other geographies with completion targeted for Drupa 2012. Our future plans are to include integration with Heidelberg’s industry standard workflow solution in the graphic arts industry, Prinect, as well as joint development activities for future printing applications. With Ricoh we have found an ideal strategic partner who shares our values of customer focus, environmental sustainability, innovation, quality, and customer service. By rounding off our offset portfolio including Anicolor technology with new digital printing equipment, we are providing our clients the combination of best-in-class offset


and digital printing-technology. Utilizing both, our customers are able to offer variable data printing as well as shorter runs, next to their established cost-effective and high end quality offset printing. With this new partnership we will also address customer demands in the broad spectrum of hybrid print applications, i.e. the combination of offset and digital printing within a single print product. Do you believe that with the new digital solution you are offering, you’ll be able to pose a serious competition to companies such as HP, Xerox and others or that’s not the intention? Before we re-entered the digital market and decided to partner with Ricoh, we carefully analysed the production spread of commercial printers. It is most important not to focus on single jobs but to offer the best equipment for the entire production spread of commercial printers. This is why we strongly believe that the combination of offset and digital that we will offer together with Ricoh is the way into the future – offering values and flexibility to printers and their clients as well.

You recently acknowledged the need for consolidation of printing industry. Do you think there are too many press manufacturers around? Do you think Heidelberg eventually will merge with another press manufacturer? There is too much capacity today in the manufacturers’ world. You have to take out the excess capacity in order to add more value to the market. The question is can so many players put enough money into their research and development to compete against other on one hand and other media on the other hand. If everybody just invests small budgets to develop the same equipment in parallel there will be no big difference at all. This is my interpretation of consolidation; why not combine the individual efforts of the manufacturers to offer better technology and more productivity to the markets. Consolidating funds for certain tasks help to do more and add more value to the industry in the end. What you think, Drupa 2012 holds for the onlookers? Drupa 2012 will show that there is an ongoing demand for commercial and packaging print and there are business opportunities in our industry to earn money. The combination of offset and digital printing for example leads to more flexibility for the printer as well as for the print buyer. We will also see further integration of printed and electronic media. It is important to understand that both media supplement each other and will pay into the marketing mix. The role of environmental responsibility will be crucial. This is where Heidelberg will continue to underline its role as a champion of environmental protection in the Printing Industry. People will get orientation at Drupa on what and how to invest as well as ideas for new business opportunities. Drupa 2012 will show many solutions, which will help printers to cope with future requirements. It

will be more on shorter runs, faster make ready times, environmental issues, how to reduce paper waste and how to get faster into production. These are the topics that will be covered because, due to market pressure printers want to produce quality printed products much cheaper than what is possible today. They need reliable machines to successfully meet those requirements. Do you think the center of gravity of printing is shifting from the Western world to Asia? Yes, there is a shift but it is not a drastic shift. There is more printing going on in Asia today. Over 30 per cent of our production is going to Asia. Only 15 per cent is going in to North America. Still the biggest power is Central Europe in the printing arena. Having said that I have to admit there will be more print in the Asian hemisphere in the future and we are by far the market leader there for high quality products. All this means that printing companies in the Western part have to differentiate themselves. This development is already in progress and a lot of printers successfully set themselves apart from others by implementing lean productions processes for example. Based on this market development we have adapted our company structure and strategy by introducing the Service division. Here we support our clients in exactly those regards. Will Print China overtake Drupa? I don’t think so, because the major part of printing still happens in industrialized countries and also the biggest numbers of printers are also still in the industrialized countries. But Print China is an important event to support the future growth in this country. We will have a big presence there and will showcase the latest technology for our customers. As a highlight we will launch our Speedmaster CX 102 for the Chinese market. Based on a new agreement, Heidelberg USA will distribute EFI’s VUTEk GS series of equipment as well as inks, parts and consumables. Heidelberg will also provide customer and technical support for printers including

BERNHARD SCHREIER

AT A GLANCE Bernhard Schreier is a Heidelberg man in all aspects. Born in the city of Heidelberg in Germany in the year 1954, he completed his mechanical engineering from the Mannheim Vocational Institute along with hands on training from the Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG coupled with a degree of Berufsakademie. Schreier started his career as an Assistant to the Assembly Management at the Wiesloch factory of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. Boarding the flight of success, he thenceforth had a very rewarding career journey. In the year 1990, he was appointed as the Head of production at Montataire, France. On November 1996, he was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer handling Linotype-Hell AG. After the merger of LinotypeHell AG into Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, he became a full time member at the management board of the Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG and Manager of the Prepress business unit. Having worked as the CEO of Heidelberg Digital, Rochester, USA he was then appointed as the Chairman of the Management Board in the year 1999, the position that he holds till date.

Heidelberg has introduced many innovative and state-ofthe-art technologies, since its inception until now; however for printers in the Middle East, GTO is still the soul of Heidelberg, an Icon. Some even wrote poems about it. For many printers here, it is more than a printing press; it is a living history of the printing industry. Many people wonder what will happen to this popular press. When will Heidelberg pull the plug on the production of this press? Not only in the Middle East but also in other regions like Asia or South America the GTO 52 is still a desired product with an excellent reputation as a reliable work horse and that has a good resale value. We therefore have no reason to pull the plug. We modified it and renewed certain elements of it and it is still a very good machine on a basic level of automation with manual settings that fits small printers especially in emerging countries perfectly. The GTO today is much more sophisticated and much more automated. I don’t

have a reason to pull the plug because it is still contributing positively to our business. It established and nourished generations of printers and all the spare parts are still available today and are requested frequently.

A rather odd alliance, does it mean that in future Heidelberg will transform to a company that offers a whole range of digital equipment based on OEM agreements? In order to deliver a value to our customers, the products that we distribute must always be complementary to our own offering. The distribution of the large format printer in the US is a good example as well as our recent announcement with Ricoh. Heidelberg deals in 170 countries and over 5000 people look after our sales and service activities. Whatever they can sell and whatever fits through the product portfolio is highly welcome. Our

back up instructors, our service instructors and above all, our infrastructure can perfectly handle those projects. In fact we might even see more of this in the future. As the CEO of the biggest press manufacturer in the world, definitely you had to take many tough decisions, decisions that without doubt had impact on the global graphic arts industry. How do you rate yourself? In your opinion, what was your biggest achievement? And if you could turn back time what would have you done differently? Our aim was and is to strengthen our customers and our industry. Heidelberg was the manufacturer, who segmented the production process into “Prepress”, “Press” and “Postpress”. Consequently

we integrated these formerly isolated areas into one common workflow called Prinect. Being a solution provider, we integrated the equipment of the whole value chain into the printshop management as well. Following this philosophy, Heidelberg was the first and still is the only supplier offering an integrated packaging workflow. If I could turn back time, my feeling is that we went into digital too early. But you make decisions based on the information you have at a certain point of time. . Afterwards, as the saying goes you grow wiser with the years passed. And as the years passed the printing world has changed and will continue to change. For the future we see the potential of the combination of digital and offset printing.

Chief Operating Officer and President of Eastman Kodak Company, Philip Faraci, who for the first time visited Dubai, in an interview with ME Printer discusses about the company’s growth in digital business, financial status quo of the company and their future interest in the Middle East region.

28

Kodak’s recently published annual report was disappointing in terms of figures, why is that so? The profits were quite good relative to this years plan but we couldn’t achieve the revenue figures that had been targeted. The company’s growth initiatives are actually doing well, though the scale of business was a little bit influenced by the economic dropout. In 2008 we had 6 quarters in a row and witnessed a very solid growth in digital business. The traditional business has been dropping at a 20 plus per cent for a while now and the digital side was offsetting it. Though the traditional decline will continue, Kodak has actually offset the decline. Even developed countries like the US and the Western Europe are not bouncing back into the industry after the great

recession but emerging markets in countries like the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Latin America etc. grew 15 per cent last year. What is the growth rate in the Middle East area? The growth rate in Middle East is in single digits. We don’t track it on a regular basis, but still can say that it has a reasonable growth rate. Tell us about the major potential areas in Kodak and what are the future trends? The digital capturing business is quite tough. Consumer electronics especially the business of Digital Still Camera’s peaked about 2 years ago in revenue size though last year it shrank pretty significantly, which we didn’t expect. PVC (pocket video camera) market has also grown dramatically.


capture business is tough; we are getting reasonable growth in the retail photo finishing market and a very good result in consumer inkjet. Recently your CEO said that Kodak’s planning to shoulder the inkjet business with partners to develop the business, so that they can take the risk with you. It seems that developing inkjet solutions costing you lot of money. Is it worth it? On the commercial side, the Kodak has an integrated set of complete solutions and that means we can put together a press but we need to tie in all of the conversion and post processing equipment. So there is a lot of work to do. This is also the opportunity to move the technology into various press configurations. We work with most of the major press manufacturers and we provide a print head based solution that can actually melt on to existing presses, that’s an area where we have great opportunity. Nexpress was a project started with Heidelberg, and then they plugged it off and gave it back to you. You always wanted to have a foothold in commercial printing, now how do you plan to penetrate the offset printing segment? We had an extensive relationship with Heidelberg; they had been our distributors in many locations. The

Nexpress project was apparently started with their support and we still have a good relationship with them. We have been in EP (electrophotographic) printing and printer development space for many years. We made our first production color press with Nexpress; it’s a great product that continues to evolve even today. It’s got high quality, high performance and has a lot of functions that you can only otherwise get in an offset press. Do you see prospect in the Middle East for your high end inkjet solutions such as Stream technology? Yes we do. Our first high end inkjet press would be going in the Middle East probably by next year. It has an offset type speed in a digital print work flow. These are commonly used in areas where you have got transaction printing or areas where you need full digital print capabilities. It’s used in many areas as well, in books, even used in newspaper printing in some locations. You have a lot of resellers in this arena, isn’t it pretty confusing? Normally we have distribution partners who cover the entire region or just the sub regions. They cover a specific set of segments and sometimes we can’t get that and end up expanding that portfolio. In general we tie in a line with distribution partners who sell other products; they give us some

From Invention of Camera to Digital Imaging Eastman Kodak Company, a multinational US corporation is producers of imaging and photographic materials and equipment. Kodak is known for its wide range of photographic film products and they are now concentrating on digital photography and digital printing. George Eastman first invented the simple camera in the year 1888. In the year 1889, the Eastman Photographic Materials Company Limited was incorporated in London to handle distribution of products in countries outside the US. Since then, Kodak is not only known for photography but also for images used in a variety of leisure, commercial, entertainment and scientific applications. Today, Kodak has manufacturing operations in North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and Kodak products are available in every country across the globe.

The pre press business didn’t perform well as we expected. Though we were expecting an 8 per cent growth in the industry, it grew only 4 per cent last year. The results did not kick back into the 2008 levels in terms of size. The movement for new products was quite stagnant last year. We brought in a lot of new technology that offered significant productivity and other performance advantages thereby offsetting price pressure that you see while commoditizing traditional plates. Our new plates are significant in terms of the advancements they make; they require less energy, develop on press, eliminate processing and are ecologically friendly. Pre press business is quite solid though they don’t have a lot of growth. We have 4 growth initiatives, commercial inkjet printing, consumer inkjet printing, packaging and workflow and services. These segments are doing quite well and grew 20 per cent last year, while this year we expect the business to grow by 40 per cent. There is significant growth opportunity this year with the commercial inkjet now available in the market. Our new Stream technology put into Prosper press is very well received and it is the only press in the market that offers offset class performance. We print on a web configuration that can print up to 1000 ft per minute and we print 650 ft per minute in a 4 colour press. The press offers magazine quality output comparable with 175 line quality output in a digital press. We print on a broad range of media, from 30 pound to 200 pound stock and coated and uncoated media. Though the packaging segment is comparatively small the business has doubled this year. As more and more people demand gravure quality and flexible substrate, we are expecting a significant growth in the future. Kodak also introduced the wide version and the direct engraving flexible plates last year. We see a huge amount of growth in the packaging business and the services and solutions business was equal to 21 per cent growth in the second half of the year and we expect it to be growing over the next few years. Overall, I can say that the growth initiatives are working really well. The pre press business is relatively stable, though the digital

Elite Interviews Your product portfolio is very broad; will you divest your product portfolio? Yes, we have already divested. We have divested areas that are not linked with the commercial print space. We have actually aggregated in the consumer digital space. So consumer digital and commercial prints are two primary focus areas. And we are trying to maintain a focus on expansion, while making sure that we have solid businesses in those areas. Many of our competitors in consumer space like Sony, Samsung or HP etc have much broader portfolio than we do. And in the commercial print space we have the broadest portfolio that’s relevant to a commercial printer today.

scale of advantage that is focused on our products. Basically we look for separate partners for packaging and commercial print. At the same time we prefer those who have a wider customer base. With regard to your product portfolio, which do you think is most suited for the Middle East? Our traditional business here has been to deal with plates. That’s our most popular zone in this region. Digital and workflow solutions are gaining more interest in the area because most of the commercial printers have the pressure to become more relevant in a forward looking business environment that requires something digital and the need to move on to workflow solutions. The Middle East market is a developing market however it is quite unpredictable; how much are you willing to invest in this region? I think we have lot of potential in this market. It’s a great trading area with a large untapped workforce. If there is more political stability in the region then it’s going to be a driver of growth. I have great hopes for Middle East, which will become an important place of business in the coming years. On the other side, Africa is also an untapped frontier for us with tremendous natural resources and a vast employee base. Why you reacted so slow to the shift from analogue to digital? There were lot of reasons for the

gradual shift. Kodak is the most recognized brand in the world and we have been here for years ubiquitously associated with photography. The transition from traditional film based photography to digital photography occurred in a very significant manner. Though we were the first brand to invent the digital cameras back in 1975, Kodak never commercialized them in the initial periods. Kodak had invented digital imaging, digital technology and many other technologies that are widely used today. Kodak has never been a strong camera player but we are a strong film player that uses camera enabling technology. The move from film based imaging was a significant transition to the company but the brand is still very healthy and very well known. Kodak has been licensing its intellectual property as a short term strategy, while trying to shift its focus. But even in the short term this strategy looks like a double edged sword? I won’t call it a double edged sword. If I could row back time 20 years back, I would constrain the number of people who went into the digital market. Once people are into that market for years, you can’t restrict them. One thing you can make sure is that you are being effectively compensated. So we actively decided to license our IP. As I said, we have invented many aspects associated with digital cameras and then we have found that the licensing program is actually investing into the business and areas that will give us a long time future.

When do you expect to be profitable again? We were profitable last year, because we had a very significant IP licensing set of programs last year. This year we expect more of a normalized licensing program and will be slightly below profitability again. Next year, even without changing in terms of normalized licensing, we will be profitable because our core investments have been improving dramatically for the last 2 years and now our core investments are moving in from the heavy investment phase to the cash generation phase, where it has started to become more profitable for the company. Consumer inkjet moved into the profitable side for the company this year and will have a positive overall earning by next year. It will go into break even sometime in 2013 probably. Within the next decade, how would Kodak look like? Kodak has been growing over the past 4 or 5 years. Our growth rates were 20 per cent last year; we expect a 40 per cent growth next year and a compounded growth rate of 30 per cent or 40 per cent over the next 4 or 5 years. I don’t think our growth areas are going to slow down over the next couple of years but I think it will only go up. Packaging is now a significant part of our commercial printing. Digital printing will be an important segment of printing presses, traditional or offset printing. So you can see that our workflow and services to business will continue to grow and we will become a much more significant player in the industry.

Meeting Market Requirements with VSOP

36

With market requirements changing rapidly, particularly when it comes to flexible packaging and labels, Muller Martini will demonstrate this Gulf Print & Pack on how printing houses can adopt to these developments with its VSOP (Variable Sleeve Offset Printing) press.

The VSOP uses sleeve technology, which means that print sizes can be changed quickly and easily without the need to change all of the printing inserts, two light cartridges (known as sleeves) are the only parts that need to be exchanged in order to change the print size. This

method is cost effective for print lengths that change frequently. VSOP printing press offers the same advantage as offset printing, such as low printing plate costs. By using standard offset printing plates considerable saving can be made in comparison to other printing processes such as flexo and gravure printing. Other advantages of flexible order management include quick and easy printing plate manufacture and short machine setup times. A quick changeover system allows the machine to be prepared offline and when in operation. The machine settings can be stored in an integrated database so that jobs can be printed again at any time. Exhibiting at stand number E330 with Giffin Graphics, they will be showing the latest market developments and will be discussing flexible production solutions for the pressroom.

They have a high production speed aided by Epson’s Automatic Droplet Detection System to fix blocked nozzles without intervention. Both devices carry photo and matte black inks simultaneously and the built-in rotary knife means prints are cut quickly and cleanly, while the improved supply handling means paper rolls are changed effortlessly in seconds. These features offer significant benefits in terms of saved cost and time to our customers here in the Middle East.” Both printers use Epson’s 8-colour UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta inkset in combination with the TFP print head for enhanced dot quality and crisp, clear images. Epson claims these printers achieve

one of the highest colour gamuts on the market with consistently smooth gradations and also a superior range of natural looking grey tones. Three densities of black, comprising a standard photo or matte black (selected automatically depending on the media) plus a light black create a striking black and white output with a high contrast ratio, perfect tonal range, improved grey balance and no colour casting. This combination of black inks also means that prints are free from bronzing with a uniform surface appearance without discernible difference between light and dark areas.

The tour started with a visit to the Print Media Academy (PMA). The three legged horse figure outside the PMA glass building, which was opened in the year 2000 prior to Drupa, has been subject to many speculations. Do three legs represent three stages of printing, i.e., preprees, press, postpress? Or is it just an artistic expression from which a viewer can draw his own conclusion? It seems that nobody really knew much about it. The fact is that it does have a certain industrial look, which you can associate with printing. So we left

production site. The tour that took place from the 7th to 11th of February also included a visit to two print houses that are loyal customers of Heidelberg as well as the Polar Mohr factory and the R&D center in Hofheim. Though the whole program was quite

intensive, it was well organized and planned. Volker Trapmann, Heidelberg’s marketing manager, responsible for distributor network and Dr. Ali Makari, Area Sales Manager hosted the journalists from day one until the final stage of the trip.

On the other hand Speedmaster 74 is targeted at commercial printers, who want to move to a bigger format than GTO. Speedmaster is still a very important machine for Heidelberg. It is available in a range of 2 to 8 colour and also in perfecting configurations. Heidelberg’s quality control systems such as Image control that can add small colour bar or Mini Spot to have a close circuit


quality control system between printing and prepress was also on display. Heidelberg claims nobody in the industry has the Mini Spot workflow. For the big format, Heidelberg has three machines on display, a 10 color XL 105 perfector, which is considered Heidelberg’s top range machine, 8 colour Speedmaster 102 long perfector, which according to Heidelberg is very popular in the Middle East and the latest member of 70x100 format family, CX 102. The machine that was unveiled at Ipex 2010 is a mix of CD 102 and XL 105. Kohler believes CX is a budget friendly solution for printers in the Middle East, who are keen to have the best features of both machines. What Heidelberg’s Print Media Center demonstrates to visitors is that printing is not about press anymore. It’s more about accessories, quality control, peripherals and most importantly, workflow. Followed by the demo center visit, Volker Trapmann kick started the first day presentations by offering an insight into the segmentation of printing volume and Heidelberg‘s positioning within the world of graphic arts. According to Trapmann, Heidelberg is now focusing more and more on service. That is why last year the company separated the service organization from manufacturing and also from other business units of Heidelberg. Heidelberg has more than 200,000 customers in 170 countries and offers service, which has now become the main priority of the company. Trapmann also offered some interesting global figures on graphic arts. The value of print volume worldwide is now about €380 billion Euro, which is equal to

DAY 2

As big as 11 football stadiums

many big printers using web to print solutions are printing and delivering thousands of small jobs every day. These printers are taking away jobs that traditionally belonged to small printers. In such a back drop, integration has become vital even for small and medium printers. Heidelberg claims, with Prinect that consists of several modules printers can easily access consistent and real time available data throughout the production. Job specifications and master data have only to be entered once. Setup data for machines connected online and for data terminals are available in real time. Furthermore, process data captured during processing are all delivered to one place that guarantees real time as well as consistent job tracking and job reporting throughout the system. Other benefits include one unified user interface that can control the entire production and scheduling and re scheduling can be performed real time on live data.

of the production line, from manufacturing of parts such as gripper bars and cylinders to the final assembly, works. There are 1400 blue collar and 150 white collar employees working in the manufacturing site, of which 80% of them are skilled workers and 20% have been trained by Heidelberg. The size of the manufacturing hall is 620 x120 meters that equals to roughly 11 football fields. Normally it takes 4 to 5 months for an order to be delivered. Every machine is built on order so there is no inventory of finished presses. Since every

machine comes with different options, it is considered a unique and customized press. The space available makes it possible to print test 85 machines at the same time. That is why some call the site the biggest print shop in the world. It takes 10 days to test print a 4 color machine and to do the final adjustments. To conduct a full test, 1000 parameters must be checked by the test printer. No wonder printing press is such an expensive kit! While we were visiting the site, a Speedmaster CD 102 was being assembled for a customer in Saudi

On day 2 we started our program by visiting the Wiesloch Walldorf manufacturing site near Heidelberg. Once again Markus Kohler and Dr. Ali Makari guided our tour, they explained how different parts

1% of global GDP. With €29 billion sales generated, German printing industry amounts to roughly ten percent when compared with Germany’s key automotive industry. The key message of Trapmann’s presentation was that print is still a very important element of our daily lives and it will remain so in the foreseeable future and Heidelberg will continue to be a global player. The next presentation by Wolfgang Roth focused entirely on the Middle East and Heidelberg’s involvement in the region. Roth put forward some interesting figures about the company’s market share in the region. With 36%, Turkey by far is the best market for Heidelberg followed by KSA, UAE and Iran. Heidelberg has been present in the MENA region since 1920. Heidelberg’s agencies and subsidiaries in MENA region employ 400 specialists including 215 technical staff for after sales service. First shipments of letter presses machine to Middle East took place during 1925 and since then more than 8600 letter presses have been sold to the region. On the other hand more than 12,000 new offset printing units, nearly 7000 new offset printing machines, 2500 new Stahl folding machines and more than 300 CtPs have been installed throughout in the MENA region. The last presentation on the first day of our tour was focused on Prinect, Heidelberg’s flagship workflow. According to Axel Zoller from Heidelberg, more than 220 complete Prinect workflow systems have been installed throughout the world including Middle East. Zoller maintains that

Arabia. At the moment, the factory’s output is 18 printing units a day. The maximum capacity of the site is about 25 units a day. Based on the configuration of machines being assembled, you could clearly realize that now-a-days long perfectors are becoming quite popular among printers. After our morning tour we met Stephan Plenz , member of the management board , who is responsible for Heidelberg’s equipment division. In his presentation Plenz gave a rather clear picture of Heidelberg’s extensive portfolio including Hardware, Software and Brainware for Commercial and Packaging Print. He also announced that the company is preparing a solution consisting not just of a digital press but teaming that device with an Anicolor sheetfed litho press and a software controller for parceling jobs between the two. Heidelberg does not believe in offset versus digital strategy. Instead Plenz maintains that customers need an efficient solution for short run printing. Heidelberg is targeting value and performance segments within digital printing arena where the runs are between 60 to 120 pages per minute and machines cost between 100,000 to 50,00,000 Euros. Plenz claims Heidelberg’s solution

DAY 3

Full integration saves money and labour

offers customers the same quality and functionality that they expect from a digital device. Plenz also maintained that the runs above 200 copies can go straight to Speedmaster 52 Anicolor and for quantities less than 200 copies; we have to check on what percentage is variable data. Based on Heidelberg’s research the volume of variable data printing is anywhere between 5 to 7%. So the big idea of variable data as the biggest advantage of digital printing never really took off. Instead it went straight to Internet. And any amount of printing jobs below 200 that needs offset quality still can be printed with Anicolor and the rest can be sent to digital device. The idea at least seems good on paper but we have to wait and see if the system can really deliver in a real commercial printing environment. Followed by the presentation of Plenz, there was another product demonstration scheduled. This time the focus was on postpress, packaging printing and peripherals such as Cut Star and perfect binding solutions such as Eurobind. Kohler explained the advantages of some of the features used in Heidelberg’s presses such as single suction tape used in feeder that prevents the misalignment of the sheet in the infeed. After the second product demonstration, Marcel Kiessling, Member of the Executive Board, who is responsible for Heidelberg Service, offered a presentation on the background and the objectives of Heidelberg’s service division. Kiessling listed the challenges that printers are facing today including eroding prices, increasing costs for labour and raw materials and environmental concerns. Kiessling also said that web to print has become an important player for some printers, helping them to increase their revenue and differentiates themselves from

the rest. Many small and medium printers now want to know more about this new trend. The role of print in media mix is changing as well. Printers who want to be a communication provider for their customers have to be aware of what kind of electronic media is available so they can become media neutral communication supplier instead of an offset printer. That means they can deliver the content that has been printed through several other channels as well. Runs are becoming smaller so there is no doubt that digital printing is a necessity. So any printing company today needs some kind of a printing capability. And that is why Heidelberg is re-entering the digital market. It is no secret that printers in industrialized countries are struggling to make a profit. In Germany, for example the gap between the ‘rich and the poor’ is increasing. During 2004-2008, even before the recession kicked in, 30% of the German printing companies achieved an average profit margin of more than 5%. Meanwhile 50% generated no continuous profit margin and 20% generated losses that became credit defaults. In order for printers to be successful in such a tough environment, first they have to opt for the right technology and second they must have access to efficient service from their supplier. That is why service has become a crucial part of Heidelberg’s offering to its customers. Heidelberg service division with 4000 expert’s worldwide, offer business development, training, process optimization, productivity optimization and last but not the least technical services, which include remote diagnosis as well. Followed by Kiessling’s presentation and another round of product demonstration we headed back to our hotel to look ahead for another busy day tomorrow.

On the third day of our tour de force, we visited two Heidelberg customers who have won CIPPI award. What both printers had in common was that both were taking advantage of the Prinect connectivity capabilities to achieve full integration within their print houses. The first print house we visited was Druckerei Bauer. The

company is a successful package printer with a wide range of Heidelberg equipment including XL 105-6+L, CD 102-5+L, Dymatrix 105 CS, Diana Pro and more. The company produces more than 250 million folding boxes per year for pharmaceutical industry, health care, and chemical industry and also for the food industry. Despite


the recession, Matthias Bauer the company’s project manager says that they were able to maintain their growth and even thrive. According to Bauer, the secret is their full integration and efficient use of workflow that includes MIS Prinance and professional ERP for

DAY 4

Cutting edge cutting devices On the last day of our trip we visited Polar factory and its R&D center in Hofheim. Michael Neugart, Polar’s managing director welcomed the delegation and gave a general overview of the company. Polar, first known as Adolf Mohr Maschinenfabrik was established in 1906 as a furniture manufacturer. Now it sells its entire product range under the POLAR brand name. As an independent family firm, POLAR has developed into a major manufacturer for high-speed cutters as well as for matching peripherals in the graphical industry. Helped by a close partnership with sales partners, POLAR began positioning itself as a global sales and service organization back in 1949. Today, POLAR maintains close contact with its customers via a network of 200 agencies and branches in 170 countries. Since 1949 Polar has exclusive global distribution agreement with Heidelberg. During his presentation, Neugart claimed that 60% of the Middle East and African market for high speed cutters belong to Polar. On the other hand 6% of Polar’s total production in 2008 went to Middle East and Africa. Though Middle East is a growing market for Polar,

The path to quality

postpress stage to the whole print production workflow. Using new Polar system the company saved on one operator. So instead of two, the whole system is managed by one person only. Since labour is expensive in Germany, the savings are significant.

it is unpredictable with a fluctuating market. The number of Polar equipment sold to Middle East varies drastically from year to year; it can be as low as 18 or as high as 150 units. Polar believes that today accessories and peripherals such as automatic loading, jogging, buffering, unloading are as necessary as the cutting machine itself because they save time and money, while streamlining the whole print production process. Many printers frequently use the cutting machine as a table for jogging papers, while the machine sits idle. This downtime is very costly for printers because instead of cutting, the expensive machine is used as a table. That is why peripherals are more and more important. During our visit to the factory and R&D center we could experience how automation in postpress can contribute to improvement in print production and quality. Polar also is very much involved in label industry. The company’s offering for label industry includes SingleHead Bander BS-23 for automatic banding of square-cut packs, Label System SC(20,21 and 25) for high automatic in-line production of square-cut labels with integrated banding, Stand-Alone Die Cutter DC-M for die-cutting packs with manual loading, Label System DC11 for die-cutting of compressible materials with counter pressure system and manual loading and Label System DCC-11 for a highly automated in-line production process of banded die-cut labels with counter pressure. Our tour guide

for Polar factory was Peter Rejmers, who is responsible for product development. His explanation about the details was interesting as well as intimidating. When you think about all the effort that goes to manufacture high quality piece of kit you feel that there are so many things that as a journalist you have to learn to understand the industry as a whole. There were lots of interesting details to learn in from the Polar manufacturing site and its R& D center. For example the way, air knife works in order to cut the plastics efficiently or the pulse generator used in the cutting machine. Every time the spindle makes one revolution the pulse generator generates 8000 clicks. This level of accuracy makes Polar equipment expensive and at the same time reliable. However many printers are going through tough times, so it is a big dilemma for them to decide in terms of quality vs price.

My four day trip to Germany was informative and mind opening. We always talk about the invasion of Chinese manufactures and how they are capturing market share within the graphic arts industry but quality is not something that you can achieve overnight. It is the result of

many years of experience, of hard work and legacy. Heidelberg and Polar are not the only manufacturers that are offering high quality products. There are of course others including Chinese manufacturers. But all of them have to go through the similar path.
