APR Installs BOBST Press at Tech Center

GLENDALE HTS, IL | Reinforcing the company’s commitment to the narrow web industry, All Printing Resources (APR) announces the installation of a BOBST M5 Digital Flexo press at the company’s Glendale Heights technical center. The eight-color BOBST “unlimited substrate” press has easy drop-in BOBST Ready technology, allowing fastest changeovers and interchangeability of flexo, screen, and hot foil decoration.

The Digital Flexo and DigiGap press system gives the operator fully automated print and die-cutting pressure control along with a truly digitally controlled workflow from plate mounting to finishing, says APR, adding that the M5 Digital Flexo system enables complete automation of the printing process and the consistency of constant digital adjustment makes it possible to obtain extremely precise colors with minimal waste.

Dave Nieman, president and CEO of APR, says, “Process control is a significant issue for narrow web converters. Our research shows that presses are down more than 30 percent of the time and that on average flexo presses have six to seven changeovers per shift. This makes the ability to optimize job-to-job repeatability and color matching essential. With the installation of the BOBST M5 press at our technical center, we can help teach our customers the process controls they need to have in place including color management and extended gamut printing. This is the only demo press BOBST has in North America, and it is a real asset to the work we do with our narrow web clients on an ongoing basis.”
