BOBST Unveils A New Vision For The Packaging Industry
Board Converting NEWS INTERNET DIRECTORY
Brand owners, small or large, are under pressure from lo- cal and global competitors and changing market expec- tations. They face many challenges, like shorter time-to- market, smaller lot sizes and the need to build consistency between physical and online sales. The current packaging value chain remains very fragmented where every phase in the process is isolated into silos. The new requirements require all key players to have an “end to end” view. Print- ers and converters want to remove waste factors and er- rors from their operations. Across the whole production workflow, more fact- based and timely decisions will be made. At BOBST, we have a vision for the future where the entire packaging production line will be connected. Brand owners, convert- ers, toolmakers, packers, and retailers will all be part of a seamless supply chain, accessing data across the entire workflow. All the machines and tooling will “talk” to each other, seamlessly transmitting data through a cloud-based platform orchestrating the entire production process with quality control systems.

While the solutions are becoming available, the biggest challenge for printers and convert- ers is not the individual printing machines, but rather the entire workflow, encompassing converting.” The reveal included the very latest generation of lam- inators, flexo presses, die-cutters, folder-gluers and other innovations, reflecting the company’s drive to transform the industry.
