BOBST to focus on functional substrate excellence at K 2016. Solution Masters will support converters live. New K5 EXPERT metallizer to be presented

The BOBST stand at K 2016 will be dedicated to providing inspiration to plastic film converters on how to achieve excellence in process performance and substrate functionality. The benefits of doing so include better product quality, new substrate functions to offer clients, and improvements in the economics of plastic substrate production. BOBST Solution Masters will be live on the stand to advise visitors about their options. The show will also see details presented of the new K5 EXPERT metallizer.

Solution Masters

With a view to displaying functional excellence alongside equipment performance excellence, it is the process specialist teams from BOBST's four Competence Centers dedicated to flexible materials technology who will take center stage at K. With their know-how and experience, these Solution Masters are the perfect guides to take visitors through their options for achieving process performance excellence, whether it be in vacuum coating & metallizing, coating, extrusion coating and printing & laminating.


For vacuum metallizing applications, the K 2016 exhibition will coincide with the launch of the new BOBST K5 EXPERT metallizer.

Capable of running at speeds of up to 1'200 m/min, this machine will be the most productive vacuum metallizer in the world. Information about the K5 EXPERT will be available on the stand, whilst the actual machine will be premiered during an Open House at the BOBST Competence Center in Manchester, UK, on the 18th October 2016. This live demonstration of the new machine will also allow visitors to see the full advantages of the new AluBond® process - the latest BOBST breakthrough in advanced metal adhesion technology. Details of the AluBond® process will also be presented on the BOBST stand at K 2016. 

BOBST technical and commercial specialists will bring visitors to the K show up to date with the latest customized configurations and industry segment applications in extrusion coating and laminating. They will also be on hand to discuss coating solutions for aluminium lacquering, hotmelt, film coating, labelstock and release liners, adhesive tapes and pre/post metallization. 

High quality samples and details of the latest additions to the BOBST range of CI flexo printing, gravure printing and laminating machines - presented in demonstration at drupa earlier this year - will also be available, alongside those of the unique BOBST Digital Flexo process. This provides for fully digitized press operation and non-stop production on BOBST inline UV flexo presses equipped with the system and includes REVO Extended Color Gamut technology. 

Finally, BOBST equipment service packages will also be represented on the K stand to show customers how their installed equipment can always provide extraordinary levels of performance. 

BOBST can be found on stand #A39 in hall 4 of the 2016 edition of the K exhibition, which will take place in Düsseldorf from the 19th to 26th October.
