Bobst and industry partners Apex International, Atlas Converting, COIM, DEC Impianti, Kodak, Reifenhäuser and Rossini, gathered at the company's 2016 roadshow in Cairo, Egypt, on Jan. 26 to discuss new technology with Egyptian flexible packaging and label converting industry representatives.
Co-hosted by Bobst's Egypt-based agent, Sidhom Co., the roadshow featured equipment presentations that spotlighted the performance and technologies of printing and converting equipment throughout the production chain for both flexible packaging and labels, from film extrusion to slitting-rewinding, by way of vacuum metallizing, flexo and gravure printing, lamination, extrusion coating and coating.
“This seminar illustrated ways that enable our customers to unlock hidden profit potential within converting and printing operations, while still ensuring the highest levels of output quality," says Roy Obeid, zone business director of BOBST Business Unit Web-fed. "This was not only true for equipment, peripheral devices and systems, but also, and very importantly so, for services."
High-performance adhesives, flexo plate technology, printing sleeves, rollers, the future of flexo with fixed palettes and solvent recovery systems for flexible packaging were also discussed.
