Bobst announces details of the Web-Fed equipment which will be the focus of the ICE Europe exhibition stand (Stand No 638, Hall A6) held in Munich, Germany from 19th-21st March. The products that will be showcased are designed to improve productivity, product quality and sustainability for customers and converters in the flexible materials and folding cartons industry.
lamination, the CL 850
/ CL 1000 multi-technology laminators and the SL 850 / SL 1000 solventless
laminators have an accuracy of web handling control which enables production of superior quality laminated
structures with the widest combination of materials, including very thin aluminum
web handling performance is also one of the hallmarks of the range of extrusion
coating and special coating production lines.
extrusion coating & laminating machines can produce composite structures of
the highest quality for flexible packaging or handle a great variety of
applications in the paper and board converting industry.
lines like the Rotosil, the Rotomelt, the Rototacky and the Rotocoat which
relate to applications in the industry segments of labelstock and release
liners, adhesive tapes and pre/post metallization, also provide a remarkable
flexibility in the choice of the most suitable coating technology. This always
combines with an excellent accessibility to all the machine sections which
makes machine make-ready and changeovers easy and fast for the operator.
will also be available on gravure printing presses, including latest
configuration of Bobst Rotomec 4003 gravure printing lines with shaftless
cylinders. The range of Bobst’s web-fed machines covers the widest spectrum of
printing applications, whereby each solution is the most productive and
profitable for the user.
printing, the main focus will be on
the F&K 20SIX which premiered at drupa and features print widths up to
1'650 mm, repeats up to 1'200 mm, and speeds up to 600 m/mi. The models of the
F&K 20SIX are designed to cover the whole range of packaging printing
demands. Fastest change-over capability and an array of technologies all aimed
at enhancing productivity, make the F&K 20SIX an investment with an
the area of metalizing, a new product for this year, Bobst General Registron Hawkeye
will be presented. Hawkeye is a monitoring system that at full metallizer
speed, detects, counts and categorizes pinholes and other defects from 0.1mm
upwards. Hawkeye sets the benchmark for in-process control; bringing increases
in speed and final product quality. Hawkeye is available for both the K5000 and
information on the AlOx process will be available which results in versatility
as one machine (the K5000 or K4000) can be used for two processes without
compromise. Bobst’s technology uses the controlled injection of oxygen into the
aluminium vapour stream causing a reaction between the two elements to produce
aluminium oxide (AlOx). This compound can be transparent if the process
conditions are correctly controlled. The application is available for coating a
wide range of films including PET, BOPP, CPP, PLA and other types of plastic
films. The coated film can be used for end products including baked goods and
Bobst will be exhibiting at ICE Europe in Hall A6, Stand 638.
