As the industry prepares for the return of Labelexpo Europe on 11-14 September 2023, Bobst has unveiled some of the technologies that will greet visitors at Brussels Expo in Belgium.

Under the motto ‘simplifying label production’, Bobst will be demonstrating its innovations in labels and flexible packaging production. The company is spearheading digitalisation, automation, connectivity and sustainability in packaging production with a portfolio that includes flexo, digital and all-in-one presses for a wide variety of applications.

‘Innovation in the label industry is shown at its best at Labelexpo,’ commented Matteo Cardinotti, general manager and global head of Bobst narrow and mid web. ‘New manufacturing technologies continue to support opportunities that simply were not available before, and we will see more of that at the 2023 edition. Bobst wants to welcome visitors on the booth to show them how we have the best solutions to the challenges they face in today’s market and for the future, and how we can help create new business opportunities.’

The Bobst Digital Master 340 all-in-one modular and upgradable label press, equipped with the latest UV inkjet technology, will be running live at 100m/min. Visitors will be able to see how Bobst’s Accucheck system, which comes as standard on this machine, performs 100% inline quality control at full speed. The full configuration will also include flexo modules and an automated die-cutting unit to showcase end-to-end label production.

‘Labelexpo has always been a major milestone for Bobst, and for converters. For this edition, together with our partners, we will continue to shape the future of label production. We will take you across all the steps required to make labels better and more sustainable than ever,’ concluded Mr Cardinotti.
