BOBST and APR to Hold Narrow-Web Open House
A day event dedicated to the latest technologies and trends in narrow-web printing and converting awaits label and packaging converters visiting APR’s (All Printing Resources) technical center in Glendale Heights, Ill., on July 20, 2017.
The open house will cover production solutions addressing converters’ challenges and topical issues relating to equipment efficiency, process control, digital workflow, and best practices on flexo shop production floors. These will be explored and discussed by specialists from APR, BOBST, GEW, Flint Group and Eaglewood Technologies, also with an eye to future industry developments.
Two BOBST in-line flexo presses will be demonstrated live:
The M1 in its latest configuration is a competitively-priced, high quality in-line flexo press, highly efficient for the production of pressure sensitive labels.
The M5 is a full servo, multi-substrate in-line flexo press, equipped with BOBST Digital Flexo technology, which enables complete automation of the production workflow.
“Technology must be seen in operation to truly assess and appreciate its effectiveness, which is why APR’s technical center serves as demo facility in the U.S. for BOBST narrow-web in-line flexo presses and multi-process printing and converting lines for labels, flexible packaging and carton packaging production,” explains Todd Blumsack, VP, Business Unit Web-fed, Bobst North America Inc. “And this event will bring to bear how smart design and innovative technology can deliver converters' requirements of increased equipment efficiencies and lead-time, and quality conformity with brand owners’ requirements.”
