BOBST has launched oneINSPECTION, an integrated and evolving set of quality control solutions to proactively meet the needs of brand owners and converters, making zero-fault packaging a reality in the labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated board industries. The new quality control will also provide significant value to packers, retailers and consumers as part of the packaging value chain.

The packaging market is in a profound transformation. Brand Owners expect faster time-to-market and more sustainable solutions. To address these needs, BOBST announces the launch of the EXPERT RS 6003 a new generation gravure printing press, which will enable gravure converters to tackle today’s market challenges.

New online tool provides users with fast, secure access to manuals and training materials
Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, has launched an innovative online documentation portal, designed to elevate customer trust and ensure the safe operation, maintenance and ownership of all PCMC machines.

A new exclusive partnership for the Americas between BOBST and FLEXO SOLUTIONS is proving popular with clients. Since it was announced in May 2019, BOBST’s clients in the folding carton and corrugated industries have had access to a wider range of tooling storage and automated printing plate washing machinery.

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has set up a dedicated business unit for the industrial development, manufacture, and sale of printed and organic electronics. The company has also started production at its Wiesloch-Walldorf site, investing some five million euros in a complete production line for printed sensors. Sensors developed at InnovationLab (iL) in Heidelberg for use in dental technology are set to be printed first. These innovative printed sensors make it possible, for the first time ever, to digitally record the distribution of masticatory pressure during occlusion, that is to say when the upper and lower jaws come together. 3D visualization on a tablet and data archiving enable malocclusions to be identified and subsequently corrected. Looking further ahead, Heidelberg is to use state-of-the-art printing technology at its high-tech campus to produce sensors for other digital applications – in particular in healthcare and logistics, and also in the retail and automotive sectors.

Quality is one of the biggest differentiators in the packaging industry. Other factors matter too of course – cost efficiency, sustainability, lead times – but ultimately if packaging fails the quality test, it can jeopardize a whole run, and a customer relationship with it. In some sectors – pharmaceuticals for example – packaging faults can have even more significant consequences.
