BOBST focuses on high barrier coating and sustainable packaging at ICE Europe

BOBST specialists will be on hand at the BOBST stand #1634 in Hall A5 at ICE Europe 2019 to discuss the latest technology developments aimed at supporting the growing industry’s need for sustainability and pledge towards recyclability of packaging materials.

The production and converting of high barrier film is one of the most rapidly evolving and growing segments of the converting industry. BOBST has been successful in rising to the challenge and contributing to the industry shared objectives: finding ways to protect food products without additives and preservatives, ensuring long shelf life, using materials that can be recyclable and all in an economically viable way.

“Our AlOx Integrated Conversion Solution was the very first to make AlOx production and processing a viable industrial solution. It paved the way for the use of high performance coatings to produce clear food packaging with high barrier properties, whilst being fully recyclable” explains Detlef Merklinger, head of the Coating Product Line at BOBST Business Unit Web-fed “and we have continued progressing by further leveraging on our Group’s multidisciplinary competences as a complete chain supplier”.

The show will also be the place to present and discuss coating solutions in other areas of BOBST expertise, such as the lacquering of aluminium, extrusion coating and laminating solutions for paper and film substrates.

World-class machines deserve world-class services. BOBST Services provide converters and printers with solutions that help them to optimize productivity and quality, while reducing downtime and environmental impact. Visitors to the BOBST stand will learn about the extensive range of equipment service packages and connectivity solutions to show how to best increase performance of BOBST machines.
