BOBST to Launch New Products at drupa

MEX, SWITZERLAND | BOBST, global supplier of equipment and services to packaging and label manufacturers, will use drupa 2016 to showcase solutions that reportedly will drive customer productivity higher, open up new capabilities, and protect customers’ global investments. The event takes place May 31–June 10 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

On display will be a new version of the M6 UV flexo press, configured with folding carton production in mind and said to offer job changeovers in under a minute due to digital flexo technology, high running speeds, and high-speed in-line sheeting.

Cartons produced on the line can then be converted using the company’s die-cutting and folding/gluing equipment available to most carton makers. Company says the seven-color M6 offers the cost benefits of purchasing board on reels, allied to the production benefits of the no-water, no-solvent, fast-changeover UV digital flexo process.

Also at drupa 2016 will be the world premiere of a MASTERCUT 106 PER, said to offer high production and innovations that will set new standards in die-cutting.

A new folder/gluer to be launched at the show, along with the new MASTERCUT and new MASTERFOIL, features increased automation, shorter set-up times, lower running costs, easier use, and will allow packaging manufacturers to realize ‘zero fault’ production, reports the company.

Jean-Pascal Bobst, CEO of BOBST, says, “2016 will be a milestone year for BOBST as we celebrate the 125th anniversary of the formation of our company. This drupa will see us clearly demonstrate that we are going forward with the same dynamism and commitment that first won us our reputation in the industry. Visitors who pre-register online to visit the BOBST booth at drupa 2016 will get a BOBST Innovation Compass sent to their Smartphone, which will give them quick and easy guided access to those solutions on the booth they have expressed an interest in.
