Hymmen is delighted with the success of the live 2nd edition of the OWL-wide Tech-Together in-house exhibition event. Around 60 visitors from all over Europe took the opportunity to participate between October 18-20, at the Hymmen Technical Center in Rödinghausen to showcase new and proven products: from digital printing technology to press and coating systems and the Industry Intelligence solution smart2i.
Tech get-together at Hymmen
From Tuesday to Thursday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., visitors took part in exciting live demonstrations on the Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLE) line and the production systems for digital décor printing on board material with UV-curing inks (JUPITER) and water-based digital printing of décor paper (SATURN).
Next door, the HPL double belt press was waiting to press digitally printed paper into laminate onsite. Hymmen’s coating finishing technology (Calender Coating Inert, CCI) can produce outstanding quality mirror high gloss as well as super matt surfaces, which were also on display.
The latest of the innovations presented is equally relevant for all Hymmen-owned as well as for external machines and systems. It is the smart2i Industry Intelligence solution samrt2i, for cloudbased onitoring and analysis of all relevant process parameters to optimize the entire production. The live application of smart2i could be experienced in real time by means of the monitoring and analysis of the current production data of the technology in operation at the fair.
The practical presentations were accompanied by talks on AI and the Industry Intelligence solution smart2i from Hymmen. Carsten Brinkmeyer, Head of Business Development at Hymmen, put the Industry Intelligence solution smart2i into a larger theoretical context. Guest speaker Wilhelm Klat (M. Sc.) gave a keynote speech on artificial intelligence. Mr. Klat is a Computer Vision Specialist, a research associate of the Applied AI Working Group at the FH Bielefeld and Managing Director of CircoVision UG. Dr. René Pankoke, managing partner and CEO of Hymmen led the following podium discussion.
