BOBST has launched the new 20SEVEN CI flexo press to deliver extended colour gamut (ECG) solutions for a variety of printing technologies and applications.
BOBST Business Unit Web-fed strategic products marketing director Federico d’Annunzio said: “BOBST has been an advocate of the ECG concept since 2013 with the now well-established REVO 7-colour digital flexo technology developed with leading industry suppliers for narrow and mid-web inline flexo presses.
“In 2017, BOBST introduced the THQ FlexoCloud, a fixed colour palette solution for corrugated board post print applications. Today, we are tackling wide-web CI flexo printing with the 20SEVEN which offers features that have been specifically developed to deliver best results with ECG printing”.
Bobst Bielefeld R&D director Dieter Betzmeier said: “High quality imaging should be consistently repeatable run after run, at high speed, with both solvent-based and water-based inks. The ECG implementation system should be open for use with different printing plates, inks or industry suppliers. The experience of our customers who have implemented the ECG project on other BOBST CI flexo presses like the 20SIX have obviously been invaluable in developing the solution.”
