– To showcase excellence in process technology at the event’s first edition in Bangkok.
BOBST will put on a grand show on its Labelexpo Southeast Asia stand in May 2018. The first edition of the Labelexpo Southeast Asia will take place from 10th to 12th May at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand.
The BOBST stand will be one of the largest at the show. “The Southeast Asian market has been keeping us very busy of late. The label and packaging industry is booming and the interest in our range of solutions is high and continues to grow,” comments Matteo Cardinotti, Managing Director of Bobst Firenze and Head of BOBST Narrow & mid-web multi-process Product Line. “Following the huge crowd turnout recorded at the Labelexpo Asia exhibition in China in December 2017 and given the comprehensiveness of the exhibits, displays and activities planned, the upcoming event is a great opportunity for showing our equipment live to a wide number of converters in the SEA region and we are gearing up to provide them with a memorable experience when they visit our stand.”
The BOBST M1 Line, a press dedicated to label production, will be the star of the show with seven daily printing and inline converting demonstrations (five on 12 May). “We launched the new M1 Line, configured with mechanical line shaft and laser pre-register and automatic register at Labelexpo Europe just over six months ago,” explains Matteo Cardinotti. “And I am pleased to say that because we never stop upgrading the performance of our equipment, the 8-colour M1 UV flexo press on show will offer even more, further extending the range of filmic applications that can be run on the line.”
Alongside solutions dedicated to label printing, most BOBST machines in the inline UV flexo range are suitable to be configured for applications serving the needs of labels, flexible packaging and folding carton packaging manufactures. This flexibility opens up for converters a variety of untapped opportunities of product diversification to enter new markets which visitors to the stand will be interested to learn about. The latest developments include the M5X Line, also presented last year, whose optimized fixed configuration combines the flexibility and quality of labels and packaging production with the attractiveness of the level of investment and the short delivery time.
Other BOBST solutions that visitors at Labelexpo Southeast Asia will be able to discuss with BOBST experts include CI flexo and gravure printing presses and laminators which are especially effective for mid- to wide-web short run production, as well as the range of silicone, adhesive and pre/post coating lines and vacuum metallizing solutions suitable for a great variety of applications in the label and flexible packaging manufacturing industry.
Present as always on the BOBST stand will be samples highlighting excellence in process technology, as well as displays illustrating BOBST products and services portfolio. Information on the benchmark service offering will demonstrate to visitors the extent of the support which BOBST offers to its customers.
