Equipment manufacturer Bobst has revealed its new flexo solution for corrugated board: the THQ FlexoCloud Technology.
Bobst says the technology requires only three key elements, being THQ ceramic rolls (supplied by Bobst); THQ CMYK inks plus varnish for high graphic jobs; and THQ printing plates that are the core due to a colour separation algorithm. Bobst adds that it offers high precision, a larger range with four colours and enables excellent anti-counterfeit security printing through invisible coded messages.
The company says this technology – developed by Graphilabel, a specialist in graphic solutions for narrow web, security and anti-counterfeit solutions, and adapted by Bobst – marks a shift in post-print flexo thinking.
Dominique Ravot, sales and marketing director, Bobst says, “For post-print flexo on corrugated board, it brings unmatched quality at lower cost in one pass. The feedback we received from the seminars has been positive and supports our belief that the THQ FlexoCloud represents the opportunity for our customers to make the difference and increase their market share.”
Bobst has made THQ FlexoCloud Technology available on a range of new Bobst post print flexo machines.
Bobst first showed the technology was first shown during a technical seminar at Bobst’s Lyon Competence Centre.
