Bobst has updated the design of its Mouvent LB701-UV digital label press to improve convenience and usability.

Design updates include a more ergonomic and easier-to-access ink cabinet, the possibility to fit rolls up to 600mm for substrate versatility, and a flexible, movable screen for more convenient management and control of the machine from any angle.

‘One of the hallmarks of Bobst is we never sit still; we are always thinking of ways we can improve the customer experience,’ said Erik van Sloten, head of sales for labels at Bobst. ‘And the way we do that is by first and foremost listening to our customers. The changes we have made to the Mouvent LB701-UV have come from speaking to printers and converters, understanding their needs, and acting on them.’

The Mouvent LB701-UV enables digital label production for short and medium run label jobs, offering printing speed of up to 70m/min, 1,200 x 1,200 DPI print quality, and the wide color gamut – printing with up to six colors plus optional white with 70 percent opacity, at 45m/min.

‘The machine already had a compact and ergonomic design, but this has been enhanced further, ensuring one operator only is able to run the press. It’s by watching that you design optimal efficiency,’ added van Sloten. ‘By making the design as user-friendly as possible, we provide the operator the means to complete the tasks at hand.’

According to Bobst, the machine provides the best TCO (total cost of ownership) in its category thanks to the low initial investment, ongoing operational costs, quick set-up time, and high productivity, allowing for higher profitability.
