Bobst has launched Vision CI flexo press designed to deliver efficient performance for all production lengths on a wide range of substrates with fast setup and changeover times and a myriad of technical updates and a new level of automation.
‘With the Vision CI, Bobst has truly delivered on its vision for the future of CI flexo press printing,’ said Mark McInulty, managing director of CI Flexo Printing. ‘It combines the very latest technology with the highest manufacturing standards at the best price/performance ratio, putting premium print quality, reliability and the highest standards of efficiency at the fingertips of converters everywhere.’
The new press is available as an initially 8-color press and is said to provide consistent and repeatable printing quality with solvent-based and water-based ink printing, on a wide range of substrates types and thicknesses. It features a compact and ergonomic, modular design for ease of installation.
‘From the moment the machine arrives, it can be installed and ready to print at the site in a matter of four weeks and this is a major benefit for converters. Its compact dimensions will save valuable space, and its smart ergonomic design will ensure the operator a convenient, intuitive and fast operation. The VISION CI flexo press brings the outstanding accuracy and repeatability of performance in terms of output quality and waste-saving operation to a wider number of flexible packaging printing operations,’ concluded McInulty.
The Vision CI also brings substantial sustainability benefits thank to smartHEAT technology, which enables the machine to use its own heat as an internal energy source, while it saves on ink and solvents. The machine also features smartKEY and smartSET features maximizing the productivity through job setup time and material waste.
