Bobst opens demonstration center in Barcelona

Bobst has expanded its demonstration capabilities with a dedicated demo center in Barcelona, Spain

Bobst has expanded its demonstration capabilities with a dedicated demo center in Barcelona, Spain, the first one outside of Switzerland, providing an opportunity to experience two label presses with the Mouvent Cluster Technology.

‘Barcelona is a European hub and such a vibrant and exciting place, it seemed the natural choice for our new center,’ said Erik van Sloten, head of label sales at Bobst. ‘We are on the final stretch and almost good to go. All of the equipment is state-of-the-art, and the onsite team is extremely passionate and knowledgeable.’

The first two machines in the demonstration center are the Mouvent LB701-UV and Mouvent LB702-UV, two 6-color plus white label presses operating at speeds of up to 100 m/min.

The LB701-UV is the smallest label press within the Mouvent range, matching the letterpress format. It features a compact design, print resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 DPI, and production speeds of up to 70 m/min. In Barcelona, it is equipped with six colors for extended color gamut printing. 

The LB702-UV label press is, with its up to 100 m/min printing speeds, is capable of producing 200,000 sqm/month with one operator in a single shift operation with the print quality of 1,200 x 1,200 DPI.

The Mouvent Cluster Technology allows label production on a wide range of substrates such as paper, self-adhesive labels, transparent, metallic, and flexible materials. According to Bobst, it combines high-quality, high productivity, and low cost of ownership in one single platform opening a new chapter for label production.

In the future, the center will also house the Bobst Master DM5, all-in-one, all-In-line press digitally automated for on-the-fly non-stop job change, high press uptime, and repeatability regardless of the operator's skills.

‘We are ready to write the next chapter of label production. We know that some of you can’t come, but do not worry, we have virtual demonstration capabilities,’ concluded Erik van Sloten.
