The latest issue of Print21 magazine is out now, featuring a three-page profile on Craig Nethercott, the new managing director of Océ Oceania, plus extensive coverage of EFI’s Connect 2018 conference, in-depth features on automation and direct mail, a visit to Heidelberg in Germany, and more.

The headline feature has Patrick Howard, publishing editor of Print21, sit down with Nethercott to discuss Canon’s decision to spin off Océ into a separately-operated business and what it means for the iconic brand. “Océ has benefited enormously from the investment by Canon. We’re a Canon company, and that’s an important part of us. The investment, technology and the speed to market that has been delivered over the past five years are, I would argue, far superior to the previous five years,” says Nethercott.

Further afield, Jake Nelson presents a four-page report on EFI’s Connect 2018 conference, held in Las Vegas in January. The feature covers not only Connect’s keynotes and product announcements, but includes an exclusive interview with Frank Mallozzi, EFI’s senior vice president for sales and marketing, and Andy Yarrow, the director of the company’s Asia-Pacific division, on the importance of Australia and New Zealand to EFI.

Across the Atlantic, Patrick Howard dropped by Heidelberg’s Print Media Academy at Wiesloch, Germany, to learn more about UV curing and how the press giant is making its own advances in the field, including for packaging printers.

In tech, Andy McCourt tackles the rise of the machines – with robotics and automation making deeper and deeper inroads into the print sector, Print21 gives you a timely look at how these new technologies can boost printers’ productivity.

Direct mail is becoming a more appealing option for getting a client’s message out to customers – and in a four-page feature, Jake Nelson takes a look at the rise of this vital advertising channel and the gear that makes it work, including high-speed inkjet presses that are replacing the need for offset shells.

All this plus news, profiles, and a farewell to PIAA veteran Peter Lane makes the first Print21 magazine of 2018 a must-read. Check it out now!
