Demo on M6 mid-web in-line UV flexo press

Bobst to show Digital Flexo process at Labelexpo Americas

At Labelexpo Americas, Bobst will highlight the Digital Flexo process whose performance will be demonstrated on the Bobst M6 mid-web in-line UV flexo press

The advantages of Digital Flexo, which is part of the Bobst Digital Automation programme, are unique in making the press operation fast, flexible and reliable, allied with a consistently superior quality of the output and the lowest total cost of ownership. Using new low migration UV curable inks and the Digital Flexo automation, Bobst has developed solutions that offer set-up times comparable to digital printing. Due to a fully digitized press operation the machine can run non-stop, affording on-the-fly job changes creating less than 10 metres of substrate waste and taking only one minute in set-up time.

The Bobst technology conforms to the seven-color extended gamut (ECG) technology promoted by the Revo team of leading industry partners which boosts the advantages of a production-driven, repeatable and controllable digital process. Moreover, on display will be the brand new MW 85F CI flexo press, printing at line screens up to 70 line/cm and the CL 750D compact laminator which are especially suited for customers looking for efficiency in short-run production, as well as Bobst silicone and adhesive coating solutions and vacuum metallizing solutions for the labelstock industry.
