As a dedicated converting event, ICE Europe is the ideal platform for BOBST process specialists to take visitors through the displays and samples dedicated to functional substrate excellence. The information available and the samples produced in BOBST’s Competence Centers in Europe will reflect the equipment capabilities to satisfy the global market demand for added value applications aimed at increasing substrate functionalities.
These include vacuum web coating and metallizing processes: from the very latest AluBond® breakthrough in advanced metal adhesion technology, through to the processes for the production and the conversion of AlOx clear high barrier films, to the well-established SelectMet® system and DarkNight® process. Information will also be available about the new K5 EXPERT, the highest productivity metallizer in the world.
In coating, the solutions presented will also spotlight the increasing demand for high performance substrates, for example lacquered aluminum foils, coated and barrier films, release liners, consumer and industrial tapes and labels. The latest BOBST developments in the field of coating, featured on its range of ROTOCOAT, ROTOMELT and ROTOSIL lines, include the optimization of the pressurized doctor blade chamber used for the production of no-label-look labels, a high performance dryer for air temperatures up to 350°C and a modular coating head for hot melt applications.
The advanced range of BOBST technology and process solutions for printing and laminating, including CI and inline flexo printing, and gravure printing, as well as BOBST service and support packages will also be represented on the ICE Europe stand.
BOBST will be attending the ICE exhibition in Munich Germany, 21- 23 March 2017 on stand 1166 in hall A 5.
