The Bobst and Partners Roadshow made a stop in Taipei, Taiwan, on December 14, 2016, attracting about 140 attendees from 70 companies in the printing and packaging industry.

The roadshow format brings together industry leaders from around the world who are driving innovation in the development and expansion of printing processes in the global flexible packaging and labeling industry. Throughout the day, Bobst covered flexographic, gravure, coating, laminating, metalization and in-line narrow web printing processes, and introduced various printing and converting equipment to help the Taiwanese manufacturers innovate in the area of production technology and improve efficiency, reduce operating costs and increase profits. Additionally, partners including Henkel, DuPont, Schmid Rhyner, Flexo Wash, Macchi and Daetwyler, discussed market trends and solutions in their respective fields, covering the areas of production, printing, converting and finishing.  

Guests showed particular interest in Bobst’s flexo, gravure and lamination equipment. Feedback from participants was good and the topics presented were seen as very relevant to the latest trends in the packaging industry today. 

“Taiwan is an important market for us, although it is only a medium-sized market, the packaging and materials industry in Taiwan is one of the most impressive in Asia,” says Eric Pavone, business development director of Bobst Business Unit. “Bobst technology and the latest innovations in printing and barrier processes are a good fit for actual and future requirements. Hot topics being discussed currently include extended gamut in printing, high quality flexo print and coating and high quality metallization.”
