Bobst M6 mid-web inline UV flexo press demo at Labelexpo Americas

Spotlighting the advantages of digital flexo technology


Bobst will present an advanced range of technology and process solutions in printing and converting for the global label industry at Labelexpo Americas in Rosemont, ILL, USA, from 13 to 15 September 2016. Star of the show on Bobst’s stand will be the digital flexo process which will be demonstrated on the Bobst M6 mid-web inline UV flexo press. The advantages of digital flexo, which is part of 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 news low migration UV curable inks and digital flexo automation, Bobst has developed solutions that offer set-up times comparable to digital printing – thanks to a fully digitized press operation the machine can run non-stop, affording on-the fly job changes creating less than 10 metre of substrate waste and taking only one minute in set-up time. The technology, unique to Bobst runs conforming to the 7-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.

Visitors to the stand will also be introduced to the very wide and comprehensive range of solutions which Bobst can offer in the different segments of the label industry. These include 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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
