At the recent ExpoPrint 2014 in Brazil, Bobst launched its new Novacut 106 ER blank separating die-cutter, while also showcasing its folder-gluer line with Braille embossing capable of producing up to 115,000 boxes per hour.
The Novacut 106 ER system provides inline blank separation, for producing stacked bundles of blanks ready for downstream processing without a need for breaking out by hand. This system leverages the company’s Angle Lock blanking tool, which can either be supplied directly by Bobst or made in-plant using standard components.
Novacut 106 ER allows users to build up a portfolio of blank separating work as they run un-blanked jobs that are simply die-cut and stripped. The machine’s delivery section can be converted from single/double cut blank separating to full sheet delivery, and back, within what the company describes as a few seconds.
At ExpoPrint 2014, Bobst is also highlighting its Exportfold line with the newest generation Accubraille GT Braille embossing unit and a Cartonpack GT automatic packer. This configuration, which is particularly suited to pharmaceutical packaging manufacturing, can produce folded, glued and Braille embossed boxes at speeds of up to 115,000 per hour.
