BOBST and Mouvent will be showcasing its innovations to illustrate solutions to challenges the digital print, label and packaging industry face today.
These range from increasingly stringent legal requirements through to consumer expectations and the need for original packaging enhancements aimed at product differentiation at point of sale. Challenging applications include production of multi-layered coupons for a variety of food, non-food or pharma products, lamitube, shrink sleeves, security products and the like.
The products will be showcased at the Labelexpo Americas exhibition, taking place September 25-27 in Rosemont, U.S.A.
‘In an industry where specialties are fast becoming the norm in some label segments where standard products won’t work anymore, converters need to keep their finger on the pulse and rely on a knowledgeable partner that provides them with the technical capabilities to solve even the toughest challenges,’ explained Matteo Cardinotti, managing director of BOBST Firenze and Head of BOBST narrow and mid-web multi-process product line.
How BOBST succeeds in doing that will be evident in the different machine demonstrations that will follow one another at short intervals throughout the day. They will be run on two production lines:
The M6 inline Digital Flexo line will spotlight the advantages of the unique Digital Flexo and Digital Automation workflow technology, including the REVO 7-colour extended gamut printing.
The M1 inline flexo press in its latest Internet of Things (IoT) configuration, is the first mechanical shaft connected label press in the industry and brings the benefits offered by connectivity to the widest number of converters.
Both presses will display the capabilities provided by their remote connectivity IoT features that exploit data to improve the production process, workflow and press room organisation. During the demonstrations, visitors will be able to view, in real time on a large screen next to the press, the production data available on the presenter’s mobile phone.
The rich variety of samples available on the Labelexpo Americas booth will also take visitors through the visual and tactile experience of the quality of the output printed and converted on BOBST equipment. The area of the stand dedicated to BOBST innovative services will show the advantages of a range of web apps and of benchmark services.
