Artwork on show at Drupa 2012
February 21, 2012 by Mark
Stationery printers from San Antonio and elsewhere can take inspiration from the ‘Institute of Contemporary Print’ to be launched by Trelleborg at Drupa 2012. The institute is intended to show some of the artistic works made possible by modern printing services and technologies. Trelleborg’s managing director, Thomas Linkenheil, says the institute will show what is possible with high performance printing. The institute will be interactive and will demonstrate solutions in offset, digital and flexo printing.
“The Institute of Contemporary Print provides the ultimate vehicle for us to do this. Taking centre stage within the Institute will be ‘The Masters’ Collection’, a compilation of artworks produced in association with aspiring students from Germany and the Netherlands. These have been specifically developed to showcase modern interpretations of some of the world’s most famous pieces of art.”
Another feature of the show will be a live mosaic of delegate photos created throughout Drupa.
Trelleborg will also be showcasing some of its printing blanket technology at the show including the Vulcan Synthesis sleeve and the mylar-based coating blanket, called Rollin MyCoat. This blanket can be stripped down so that printers can check for correctness and precision of knock outs. This particular blanket is also suitable for use with UV and aqueous coatings.
The show will also feature a reverse auction for the artwork with winning bids matched by Trelleborg and donated to The Printing Charity.
“With so many great pieces of artwork being created and displayed, we couldn’t let them go to waste,” said Mr Linkenheil.
