The Bobst Manchester Open House from 10 to 12 October 2012 will provide an opportunity to witness 2 technical presentations and demonstrations.
Clear Coating (Aluminium Oxide ) process
BOBST uses a standard aluminium metallizing machine as a foundation for the AlOx process which results in versatility as one machine can be used for two processes without compromise. BOBST’s technology uses the controlled injection of oxygen into the aluminium vapour stream causing a reaction between the two elements to produce aluminium oxide (AlOx). This compound can be transparent if the process conditions are correctly controlled.
The application is available for coating a wide range of films including PET, BOPP, CPP, PLA and other types of plastic films. The coated film can be used for end products including baked goods and microwaveable products.
A detailed technical presentation on film properties and barriers and adhesion will be followed by a demonstration of the AlOx process on a BOBST General K5000-2850.
BOBST General Registron Hawkeye Pinhole Detector
BOBST General Registron Hawkeye is a monitoring system that at full metallizer speed, detects, counts and categorizes pinholes and other defects from 0.1 mm upwards. Hawkeye sets the benchmark for in-process control; bringing increases in speed and final product quality.
A detailed technical presentation of BOBST General Registron Hawkeye will be followed by a demonstration on a BOBST General K5000-2850
