Bobst Introduces (CONT’D FROM PAGE 40)


to enable reduction of steps and waste. In folding carton, Bobst is announcing the new ACCUCHECK RECIPE ED- ITOR for folder-gluers. The new Recipe Editor allows us- ers to create and edit Accucheck recipes remotely within the Connect platform and to send these recipes to several Accuchecks on the production floor. Leveraging the PDF data of the packaging artwork, this solution simplifies and significantly shortens set-up. As a result, it enables higher shop floor productivity, while also increasing quality and reducing waste by limiting the potential for human errors. In an era where converters and brand owners are fac- ing higher demands than ever due to the booming e-com- merce market, while simultaneously facing challenges such as shortages in skilled manpower and raw materials, automation and productivity have never been more im- portant. In the corrugated board sector, the new EXPERTLINE – consisting of the EXPERCUT 1.7 I 2.1 and the EXPERT- FLEX – is a large format converting line combining flatbed die-cutting and post-print flexo process, ideally suited to producing e-commerce solutions. In the folding carton sector, Bobst is announcing the new SPEEDSET, an enhanced set up time reduction pack available on all flatbed die-cutters. This pack considerably reduces changeover times and increases output. Speed- set includes improved ergonomics, such as an additional 15-inch screen at the feeder for faster setup of the optical registration system. Increased automation is also part of the pack, like pallet lifting for each new job setup and a motorized micrometric system to perfectly centre die and counter plate to ensure perfect matching between cut and creasing positioning. TooLink is included to digitally con- nect the tool with the machine to exchange job data within seconds. “While there is no question that the challenges we face in today’s packaging environment are greater and more varied than ever, we know we have the portfolio, services and partnerships in place to help converters and brand owners navigate successfully through them,” says Jean-Pascal Bobst. “We chose the right strategy back in 2020 and now converters and brand owners can really benefit from that. Together, we can embrace a better fu- ture with confidence.” PMMI Supports Next Gen Workforce With $132,000 In Scholarships Twenty-eight students received $132,000 in Spring schol- arships from the PMMI Foundation, which supports the next generation workforce.
