VIENNA, Austria—BOBST—one of the world’s leading suppliers of equipment and services to packaging and label manufacturers—says it will feature innovations in post-print flexo and automatic packer technology for folder-gluers at this year’s European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers (FEFCO) Technical Seminar to be held October 11-13, in Vienna.

BOBST’s THQ FlexoCloud is a major leap forward in post-print flexo, bringing unmatched quality on corrugated board at lower cost in one pass. The THQ FlexoCloud technology—first revealed at a recent private seminar at its Lyon Competence Center—is promising significant improvements over existing post-print flexo technology, with a large color range, perfect color density with solid printing and outstanding quality on a large range of liners.

The SPEEDPACK meanwhile, is a new automatic packer that will allow users to realize the full potential of their BOBST folding-gluing line.

With the highest possible number of batches per hour and very short set-up times, it drastically increases productivity. This robust and ergonomic packer can process literally all types of boxes, while preserving their quality, thanks to particularly smooth movements and other patented solutions. As the most productive packer on the market, SPEEDPACK could soon become the natural extension of your corrugated folder-gluer.

PREMIUM GAP CONTROL ensures total quality folding to the customer’s exact specifications, on 100 percent of the boxes. This is an extremely easy-to-use and reliable system, bringing total control of the folding process and major resource savings, with removal of non-compliant packaging, waste and customer complaints, as well as operator time dedicated to control and compliance.

Come and find out more about the first 100 percent Gap Control on finished boxes on the market.

BOBST will be demonstrating all three of these technologies at their exhibit stand at European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers (FEFCO) Technical Seminar 2017, along with some other surprises, at booth #’s 079, 080, 081 and 082.
