BOBST was pleased to welcome distinguished delegates from KASAD (the Cardboard Packaging Manufacturers Association Turkey) at the BOBST Packaging Centre in Mex, Switzerland and demonstrated its commitment to the industry vision deployment, focusing on end-to-end solutions, innovative equipment and novel packaging solutions.
The event hosted 32 prominent companies from across the Turkish packaging market, including the General Secretary of KASAD. This was an opportunity for BOBST to showcase its dedication to enhancing production flow efficiency across the entire product portfolio and demonstrated its deep understanding of market trends, customer needs and future industry dynamics, which underscores its leadership in the converting world.
The technologies demonstrated a full PDF-to-production workflow, showing the power and efficiency of a connected production line with live samples. The BOBST solutions featured were the multi award-winning Digital Inspection Table (DIT), NOVAFOIL 106 hot foil stamper, MASTERCUT 106 PER Autoplaten® die-cutter and VISIONFOLD 110 folder-gluer machines.
A further highlight of the event was the ground-breaking digital and connected production flow solution – BOBST Connect. By directly connecting die-cutting tools to machines within a centralised hub, BOBST Connect streamlines recipe management, performance monitoring and equipment maintenance. Combined with enhanced automation, this innovation significantly improves production efficiency, precision and ergonomics, setting the stage for the future of carton production environments.
Marco Lideo, Head of Product Line Die-cutters, Stampers, Flexo and Litho-laminators at BOBST, commented: ‘We are delighted to welcome KASAD members to our Competence Centre. We were particularly excited to demonstrate BOBST Connect among many important innovations from the BOBST folding carton range. Ideal for today’s digitalised and automation-friendly workflows, the BOBST Connect brings data and digital services together. What this brings to packaging converters is better machine insights, process management and production data, ultimately empowering manufacturers with better planning, decision-making and optimisation capabilities.’
