BOBST, along with its digital printing competence center Mouvent, will reveal a portfolio of innovations at Labelexpo Europe 2019, Sept. 24-27 in Brussels, Belgium, helping converters and brand owners improve time-to-market, guarantee color consistency and food packaging safety.

These include Ink-on-Demand (IoD), a revolutionary concept in inking technology, which eliminates ink trays and chambered doctor blades; Highly Automated Liquids (HAL), an offline ink mixing station for producing Pantone colors from 14 basic inks; and DigiColor, the first ever inline “closed loop” color system that enables digital color adjustment to the target Delta E values during printing.

These innovations have paved the way for a new hybrid Flexo with “Mouvent Digital Technology Inside”, providing the best combination of digital and DigiFlexo printing.

Other machines on display include:

M5 IoD/DigiColor, which transforms flexo printing into a fully digitized process;

LB702-WB from Mouvent, a remarkable advance in 100% water-based digital label production;

M1X inline UV flexo press, which delivers high performance at a competitive cost;

BOBST M6 press, the most productive press to economically produce short to mid-size runs

Visitors can hear about BOBST Services, solutions to optimize productivity and quality, while reducing downtime and environmental impact. Stand visitors will be able to see live demos and speak with BOBST experts at stand 3A59/58, hall 3, and see the BOBST M6 press in action at the Flexible Packaging Arena on stand 11A50, hall 11.
