BOBST North America Inc. presented our latest Folding Carton equipment technological advancements and service innovations at the IADD*FSEA Odyssey Show on May 1-3, 2013 at the Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
Over 800 visitors attended this event and were able to see the NEW BOBST EXPERTCUT 106 PER diecutter reaching top speeds of 9,000 sheets per hour in the IADD/FSEA Odyssey TechShopT! BOBST continuously innovates the technology we use in our machines and we were excited to share the many new features of our NEW EXPERTCUT 106 PER diecutter that give users access to increased net production, lower costs, easier maintenance and less waste. The modifications run throughout the machine and include new feeder technology, changes to the sheet transport system, faster make-ready in the stripping and delivery sections and developments that reduce the wear, and consequently increase the life, of die-cutting tools.
With its new, advanced design and a host of clever features, including a state-of-the-art power register system that can read the sheet edge or printed marks for both lateral and longitudinal register, an intelligent feed system and a quick-change tooling system, the BOBST EXPERTCUT 106 PER is the most productive 41" blanker in the market today. Incorporating faster sheet make ready and a reduction of your process waste and tooling costs, plus very low machine stops, the BOBST EXPERTCUT 106 PER has proved to be the workhorse for the world's medium to high volume converters!
Visitors also learned about the BOBST ACCUCHECK Inline quality control system that inspects carton blanks for defects as they enter the BOBST folder-gluer. Operating with energy-efficient motors and offering intuitive setting and easy operation, every inspection parameter can be saved with the job.
An extensive range of service products were on offer from BOBST SERVICES in Booth #339. Economy, efficiency and user friendliness are key issues that BOBST's Business Unit Services focuses on when producing new products for existing machinery. Our e-Services programs keep you connected to your machine and help you keep your machines up and running. Visitors experienced how the new BOBST app for smart phones and tablets remotely monitors machines and displays key production data. Providing information 24/7, this new app is a breakthrough in tracking problems as and when they occur.
