Whether it’s virtual reality or luminescent packaging, the World of Inspiration will be a real eye-catcher at viscom, features all the innovations that visual communication has to offer.
Running under the thematic focus of “Finishing”, it will showcase technology, materials, design, developments, products and applications in visual communication as well as in-store and property design solutions. In fact, the
entire inspirational potential of the industry will be represented here. viscom in Frankfurt will provide a great opportunity for visitors to look beyond their own corporate boundaries. It will be held in Frankfurt from Wednesday 2 until Friday 4 November.
Working together with INRU, Karl Knauer will present luminescent packaging for supermarket shelves, based on a new technology. Whereas, in the past, any luminescence has always been a matter of electroluminescence, this is now the first time that flexible, organic OLEDs are used for this purpose. OLEDs are self-radiating, wide-area light sources that are several nanometres in thickness and made from
organic semiconductors. Compared with electroluminescence, OLEDs are 100 to 500 times brighter, yet require only a fraction of energy, so that they can provide constant and effective lighting for several weeks at a time. For the first time, OLEDs can now be printed, complete with all their electronic components and even batteries, while also being sustainable and recyclable. This makes them suitable for packaging, displays, POS materials, advertising media and bottle labels. Another item on Karl Knauer’s agenda will be multisensor technology. The solution presented by the company is called “Multisensors 3.0”, involving not only a person’s sense of touch but above all also our sense of smell. It uses an innovative method [...]
