Bobst clinched two EDP Awards
Bobst has been given two accolades by the European Digital Press Association (EDP). The Large Format Digital Inspection Table won in the Print and Finishing Support Tool category, while the MASTER DM5 inline printing and converting press has been named the best combined label and flexible packaging printer of the year.
Launched in early 2020 for the corrugated board sector, the Large Format Digital Inspection Table (DIT) enables quality control of sheet sizes up to 2800 x 1600 mm. With enhanced digital projection and lighting, it provides augmented images of samples and original artwork, removing the need for printed overlays and proofs. Part of the BOBST oneINSPECTION system, it is the optimal workflow tool for achieving zero-fault production.
The MASTER DM5 is an inline printing and converting press that combines digital and analog processes into a new All-in-One and All-Inline concept that BOBST has developed to deliver label production timely and efficiently – from priming and printing to varnishing, embellishment and die-cutting.
It features the highest level of digitalization and automation using BOBST digiFlexo technology and Mouvent Cluster digital inkjet printing to achieve an exceptionally high press uptime, outstanding repeatability regardless of the operator’s skills and the ability to cost-effectively answer any label challenge.
“The innovative MASTER DM5 is the ultimate proof of BOBST’s vision for the labels industry, where every single step throughout the production process is digitalized from the job file to the finished reels of printed and converted label applications. All functions and tooling are seamlessly integrated, allowing you to effectively manage the production while performing quality control throughout the process,” said Matteo Cardinotti, Managing Director of Bobst Firenze. “Winning this renowned industry award is hugely satisfying and further supports our vision, and I would like to thank the judges for their recognition.”
