The Drupa 2012 exhibition will take place in Germany next month, where a number of printing technologies will be showcased.

Ink users will see the latest innovations unveiled at the show, with Heidelberg set to be the primary exhibitor at the event. Its full portfolio of solutions will be on display, covering around 67,800 sq ft.

Uwe Galm, the technical manager for the Drupa presentation at Heidelberg, said: "Building such complete and integrated print shops would normally take longer than half a year."

The Heidelberg team will consist of nearly 200 service engineers, booth builders, electricians and lighting audio engineers, while roughly 2,000 metric tonnes of material will be brought to the firm's booth.

In recent weeks, HP announced that it is to develop a new range of lightweight paper, entitled HP Paper Thin.

The firm has claimed that the paper will reduce the environmental effects of printing and storage by 22 per cent.
