Bobst to launch K5 Expert, AluBond

The AluBond process will be demonstrated on the Bobst K5 Expert metallizer

As is particularly critical in a cost-sensitive process such as vacuum metallizing, the new K5 Expert includes significant cost-saving innovations to reduce energy consumption, consumable usage and film waste, whilst maximizing productivity. This results in a lower environmental impact and gives customers the lowest production costs available in the market.

In addition to the K5 Expert will be launched the AluBond process, which provides high metal adhesion with values up to 5N/15 mm and improves surface energy retention through a unique innovation in the vacuum metallization process. The process will be demonstrated on the K5 Expert metallizer while another educational session will be held in the laboratory where the full effects of AluBond will be put on show.
