This year's Labelexpo – taking place in Brussels between the 25th and 28th of September – will feature a BOBST stand that will be one of the largest of the exhibition, featuring equipment in operation, presentations and connectivity displays.
Three narrow- mid-web in line UV flexo printing presses will be in demonstration: the M5X, the M1 and the M6 lines, all in their latest configuration and fitted with enhanced features, will print and convert “live” label and flexible packaging production.
As well as the inline flexo presses showing incremental innovations to continuously increase the equipment performance, BOBST also has a brand new development in store. “It relates to packaging and we are keeping it under wraps,” jokes Matteo Cardinotti, Managing Director of Bobst Firenze and Head of Narrow & mid-web multi-process Product Line. ”But mum’s the word until Labelexpo, when all will be unveiled during a dedicated event that will take place on the BOBST stand on the evening of the first show day, on 25th of September”.
Visitors to the stand will also learn about the wide and comprehensive range of web-fed solutions BOBST offers in the different segments of the label industry. These include the latest developments in CI flexo, gravure printing and lamination, which are especially suited for customers looking for efficiency in short run production. In addition, visitors can hear more about the BOBST range of silicone, adhesive and pre-/post- metallizing coating lines and vacuum metallizing solutions, including the new K5 EXPERT and AluBond® process for high adhesion
"Alongside all this technology, BOBST can offer preventive maintenance and service packages that help the equipment to deliver extraordinary levels of performance at all times. During the show some of the latest connected services will be demonstrated," said Cardinotti.
