Bobst will demonstrate for the first time since acquiring a majority stake in Nuova Gidue two press lines, the M4 press (430mm width) and M6 press (670mm width), a UV flexo mid-web press dedicated to the flexible packaging market, at Labelexpo Europe 2015. Both presses showcase the manufacturer’s digital automation program in the print cylinder configuration of the M4 and in the print sleeve configuration for the M6. Live exchange of multiple jobs with less than 10 meters of substrate waste and 1 minute of set-up time will be performed.
Bobst has confirmed its promise to continue driving Revo project for 7-color extended gamut technology. Revo plates will be produced for both presses through the show. The Revo team introduces the concept of Non-Stop Digital Flexo with the aim to achieve up to 95 percent press up-time. To achieve this objective on the new M6, Bobst’s automatic turret un-winder and rewinder will be shown. On both M4 and M6 presses the company’s ‘Excellence’ technology will allow for fully automated job exchange on-the-fly without stopping the press.
Bobst will also unveil a new set of technologies and procedures for UV flexo printing on flexible packaging for food application.
Bobst can be found in HALL 11 at stand C10 at Labelexpo Europe.
