Bobst’s sustainability solutions in the spotlight at October events

Packaging Solutions

This coming October will see Bobst present its sustainability ready technologies at three separate events across Europe. The company will be showcasing its extensive know how and technical capabilities in substrate functionality and process performance, which enable converters to maximise opportunities and take transformative steps towards a circular economy.

In addition to daily presentations and displays at the K show in Düsseldorf, the company is extending its reach by inviting flexible packaging converters to visit two open houses at its European Competence Centres – one taking place in Bielefeld, Germany, and the other in Manchester in the UK.

‘The focus at all three locations will be on exploring the possibilities for packaging manufacturers to proactively meet the fast evolving market demands and their related challenges, not only in terms of sustainability but across all the elements of the Bobst Vision – connectivity, digitalisation and automation,’ explained Sara Alexander, marketing and communication manager, Flexible Packaging.

Barrier Paper Solutions Open House

Bobst Manchester, UK, 18 October 2022

The Manchester Open House will demonstrate the latest achievements in developing viable fibre based packaging solutions. Aptly titled Barrier Paper Solutions: A New Opportunity for the Flexible Packaging Market, the event will take visitors step by step through the development of the FibreCycle solution by Bobst and the project ecosystem of partners, which comprises UPM and Michelman. Developed within the scope of the oneBarrier family of solutions, it responds to the escalating interest in paper packaging and delivers an industrially viable mono-material paper solution that utilises the synergies between wet dispersion coating and dry vacuum coating technologies to produce high barrier, recycle ready flexible packaging.

K 2022 Trade Fair

Messe Düsseldorf, Germany, 19 to 26 October 2022

Sustainability and connectivity will take center stage on the stand (hall 4, A39) at K 2022 in Düsseldorf. Interactive displays and video presentations will show how the company is making sustainability in packaging a reality through groundbreaking innovations and exceptional support.

Bobst and partner companies Dow, Michelman, Sun Chemical and Zermatt will be on hand to discuss the development of the PE mono-material oneBarrier PrimeCycle solution, a recycle ready, industry viable alternative to non recyclable metallised film. The partners will illustrate how their contribution to the project guaranteed a successful result.

Visitors will also be brought up to date on other advances under the wide scope of the oneBarrier project, including the extensive testing programme that led to the introduction of the high barrier and recycle ready fibre based oneBarrier FibreCycle solution, which has been developed with UPM and Michelman. There will also be updates on other collaborative projects with different ecosystems of partnerships.

One Complete Solution Open House

Bobst Bielefeld, Germany, 19 to 22 and 24 to 26 October 2022

The programme of the Bielefeld event will demonstrate the advantages of end to end flexible packaging production. A very wide range of different integrated workflows, equipment and process combinations are gathered as ‘One Complete Solution’, which will allow visitors to experience a fully optimised flexible packaging workflow in action: from pre-press and flexo plate production, through to automatic plate mounting and setting, printing on the Vision CI flexo press, quality control with DIT digital inspection table and solventless lamination on the Nova SX 550 Laminator. The flagship Master CI flexo press featuring advanced robotics for a fully automated press setup will also be shown in a separate demonstration.
