Bobst recently announced the world premiere of its latest innovation, a hybrid label press, described as a combination of digital and DigiFlexo printing in a single press.

Featuring Mouvent inkjet digital technology, the Master DM5 is designed for high-added value labels, with short job setup and boasts fast return on investment. According to the company, it is the most digitally automated press in the label market, with the highest print quality and productivity. The digital print engine inside the Master DM5 is made up of Mouvent’s Cluster Technology, integrating Fujifilm Dimatix Samba printheads. The Mouvent Cluster heads, Bobst explains, are “super compact and simple to change for easy and accessible maintenance” and have all-in-one fully integrated inking, conditioning and electronic circuits for increased printheads reliability.

Ink-on-Demand (IoD) is an optional extra for DigiFlexo print units, a solution that replaces conventional inking reservoirs with a single rubber pipe that dispenses 30 grams of ink to the print unit. The system eliminates ink trays and chambered doctor blades and performs fully automated washing of the print unit in less than one minute, the company notes.

It also has a full range of added value capabilities, including coatings, varnishes, tactile effects, 3D effects, hot stamping, cold foil, embossing, die cutting, punching, silk screen, flexo and digital variable data printing (VDP).
