Capable of running at speeds of up to 1200 m/min, this machine will be the most productive vacuum metalizer in the world. Information about the K5 Expert will be available on the stand, whilst the machine will be premiered during an Open House at the BOBST Competence Center in Manchester, UK, on 18 October. This live demo will also allow visitors to see the full advantages of the new AluBond process—the latest BOBST breakthrough in advanced metal adhesion technology. Details of the AluBond process will also be presented on the BOBST stand at K 2016.
BOBST technical and commercial specialists will update visitors with the latest customized configurations and industry segment applications in extrusion coating and laminating. They will also be on hand to discuss coating solutions for aluminum lacquering, hotmelt, film coating, labelstock and release liners, adhesive tapes, and pre- as well as post-metallization.
High-quality samples and details of the latest additions to the BOBST range of CI flexo printing, gravure printing and laminating machines will also be available, alongside those of the unique BOBST Digital Flexo process.
