BOBST reveals innovations to be showcased at FEFCO 2017

BOBST recently announced that 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 October 11-13, 2017, Vienna.

The THQ FlexoCloud is a leap forward in post-print flexo, bringing 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 Centre — is promising improvements over existing post-print flexo technology, with a large colour range, perfect colour density with solid printing and quality on a large range of liners.

Speedpack, is a new automatic packer for the 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 all types of boxes, while preserving quality, due to smooth movements and other patented solutions.

Premium gap control ensures total quality folding to exact specifications, on 100 per cent of boxes. This is an easy-to-use and reliable system, bringing total control of the folding process and resource savings with removal of non-compliant packaging and waste, as well as enabling operator time to be dedicated to control and compliance.

BOBST will be demonstrating all three of these technologies at its Stand, 079, 080, 081 and 082.
