LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND | Bobst Group Business Area Flexible Materials reported a successful Drupa 2008 exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, May 29 to June 11, where it presented “The Next Generation” of solutions for converting flexible materials. Among them was the new Fischer & Krecke FP 16S-10 (color) flexo press with SMARTGPS. All twice-daily demonstrations of the print job changeover were performed using the new technology of F&K’s “Graphic Positioning System.”
F&K also concluded several sales of the FP 16S-10 and the FP 14S-8 flexo presses during Drupa for printing plastic film for flexible packaging applications. Several Titan SR8 and ER610 machines were sold during the exhibition to customers from countries including Colombia, Poland, South Africa, Italy, and Germany.
Under the brand of Schiavi, the EF 4030 flexo press also was introduced. Titan also introduced a prototype demonstration of its “HIGHWAY VIEW” connectivity solutions for online remote machine performance monitoring and diagnostics. Development of this system is still ongoing and it is hoped will be made fully available during 2009.
Rotomec demonstrated its wide range of gravure printing technology and coating and laminating solutions both on the main Bobst Group stand at Drupa and also at nearby Bobst Group Deutschland GmbH, in Meerbusch, where visitors were taken by a daily shuttle service. More than 200 attendees visited the Meerbusch facility during the show.
