Bobst Masterfold 75/110 folder gluer has incorporated a new Bobst branding. Equipped with a series of automated setting functions, the Masterfold 75/110 enables short make-ready times and supports non-stop production, producing up to 2.7 million boxes per day.

Pierre Binggeli, product line director folder-gluers at Bobst, said: “Bobst has identified four cornerstones crucial to the future of packaging production; namely sustainability, automation, connectivity, and digitalization. Our vision is anchored in data access and control across the entire workflow to support customers achieve greater flexibility, agility, and efficiency.”

Also, the folder-gluer is designed with open frames and platforms, which increases the operator’s ergonomics and simplifies changeovers. With its new makeover, the cost of ownership is decreased, maintenance is simplified, and the machine’s accessibility is further increased.

The performance of the Masterfold in terms of productivity, ergonomics, and user-friendliness is also enhanced by a range of dedicated devices and peripherals.

Complementary peripherals create a fully automated, high-performance folding-gluing line. The Easyfeeder / Batch Inverter 4 motorized pre-feeder allows consistent and smooth feeding of blanks, preventing unscheduled production stops and further increasing productivity. 

The Cartonpack 4 high-performance packer automatically fills shipping containers with folded and glued cartons. It can also work in conjunction with a case erector, which automatically erects the containers to be filled. Thanks to these peripherals, the reduction in manual workload also improves the working conditions for the operator. It will help avoid issues with repetitive strain injury and other work-related health problems.

In response to e-commerce growth in 2020, the Gyrobox complementary device is a crucial solution to producing folding carton e-commerce boxes faster and more efficiently. This device simplifies the production of complex packages by rotating blanks in lines between two folding processes. Thus, it allows the rapid folding-gluing of boxes in a single pass – speeding up the production process, boosting efficiency, and delivering an exceptional quality finished product.

Binggeli added: “And let’s not forget the Accucheck quality control solution, that inspects every carton, filters, and ejects automatically defective ones, guaranteeing 100% quality-controlled production. In short, the Accucheck enables converters to increase efficiency and reduce waste with the aim of delivering zero-fault packaging to their clients.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
