printstars2011-awarded For eight years the German printing industry has awarded companies for innovative products. The PrintStars 2011 event took place in Stuttgart on 10th November 2011. The patron of this innovation award was Federal Minister of Economics and Technology, Dr. Philipp Roesler.

World market leader Renz participated with the RENZ AP 360-120 DIGI BL-BL. This multifunctional punching system results from an intensive dialogue with the calendar industry.

Renz won the silver award in the category “finishing technology”. Peter Renz, CEO of the Renz group, received the award in the concert and congress center Stuttgarter Liederhalle. Peter Renz proudly and happily reported on the stage: “With this system we have created a unique product. We are on the right track!”

The jury was impressed by the 60 % increased productivity compared to existing production systems for calendar punching. Another special feature is the intelligent de-stacking system, which – for the first time ever – achieves a staggered product delivery, which is ideal for personalized calendars.

Many prestigious companies have been awarded, e.g:. the Audi AG, Ingolstadt for the Audi magazine “Dialoge” and Kodak has been awarded in the technology sector.
