Mouvent, a Bobst Group company, will provide live demonstrations of two of its digital label printers at Labelexpo this year, which takes place from 24 to 27 September 2019 in Brussels. On display will be the industrialized LB702-WB, a high net output digital label printer using 100% water-based inks, and LB701-UV, one of the smallest high flexibility, high productivity digital label printer.
Attendees will have the opportunity to bring and test own jobs on the LB701-UV (by appointment). In addition, a major new launch by Bobst at Labelexpo 2019 – a new hybrid label press called MASTER DM5 – is driven by Mouvent digital ink-jet technology Inside.
LB702-WB uses only 100% water-based, in-house developed Mouvent inks, making it 100% free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and 100% indirect food contact compliant. The machine can run with up to 100 meters/min on a broad range of substrates of up to 360 mm wide, from self-adhesive to wet-glue labelstock especially targeting applications where migration and recyclability could be an issue, washable labels being just one example.
The LB701-UV is the smallest label printer within the Mouvent range, matching the letterpress format. This mini label machine has a resolution 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and speed of up to 100 metres/min.
“Attendees at Labelexpo will have the opportunity to see the full potential of digital label printing for themselves,” said Thierry Martin, chief executive officer of Mouvent. “The LB702-WB is a really remarkable advance in digital label production as it uses only water-based inks, while the LB701-UV is extremely compact and ergonomic and enables highly flexible label production. These machines are the future of digital label printing.”
