Packaging market: growth in a niche sector

High-quality packaging is currently enjoying a renaissance.

It goes without saying that, for a long time, the primary purpose of packaging was to protect the product inside – but now it is also all about creating visually strong packaging with a focus on recognition factor and brand staging. While conventional advertising is increasingly losing relevance, packaging is steadily becoming a more important tool for influencing purchase decisions. Today’s customer is much more likely to be impressed by visual and tactile experiences than by abstract promises of happiness. The result: packaging is one of the few growth segments in the print market, and it is currently conquering a brand new segment – the market for small print runs.

The finishing touch:

Integrated packaging solutions for the digital era.

So you want to establish yourself in this market? Then you are going to need machines that deliver the same efficiency and flexibility for finishing as they do for printing. With the solutions from KAMA you can keep your finger on the pulse of the moment and put yourself in the perfect position to respond to your customers’ requests. This applies equally to the growing demand for version-controlled or personalised packaging in digital printing and to on-demand small printing runs or medium-sized batches of high-quality offset-printed packaging.

Our multifunctional machines cover all the important finishing work steps: from cutting, creasing, embossing and stripping to special finishing techniques like hot foil stamping.

We also have a world first fully automated folder-gluer for small order sizes. The applications run efficiently and with minimal changeover times and can be integrated in a networked workflow if required.
