Label converters, who visited the BOBST stand at Labelexpo India 2018 looking for equipment offering innovative digitized workflow for color and quality management, flexo printing & converting in one pass, and equipment connectivity, saw plenty of options to be excited about.
Up close explanations of the technical features of the M5 inline UV Digital Flexo and multiprocess press on show were paired with a rich variety of printed and converted samples. Dotting a dedicated wall display, this signature feature of BOBST process capabilities enables visitors to have the visual and tactile experience of the quality of the output printed and converted on BOBST machines.
The label market is heading towards applications that are increasingly complex in terms of finishing processes for substrate enhancement and die-cutting shapes, and India is no exception. Matteo Cardinotti, head of BOBST narrow & mid-web multi-process product line and managing director of Bobst Firenze, commented, “The automation and advanced technology of our production lines, coupled with the ease of use and lowest TCO in the industry make for a very attractive proposition for companies wanting to grow.”
“We have received many queries and expression of interest on the part of both label converters wanting to be able to fulfill the increasing demand for special label applications, and also from offset printers that are looking to enter the label market with flexo equipment,” Cardinotti added.
The other visitors’ take away from the BOBST stand was the extent of BOBST service capabilities designed to help users maintain their equipment at optimum efficiency levels, expand their capacity and be easily upgraded to enter new market segments along with the growth of the company.
