First Swiss install of BOBST flexo press

A mission statement to offer professional packaging solutions using ultra-modern printing machines is the driving force behind the first Swiss installation of the 20SEVEN flexo press by BOBST.

In a move which signifies continued growth of the packaging market, Liestal-based manufacturer, Celloclair, has become the first Swiss company to install the 10-colour Cl flexographic printing press, as well as utilise the new Connected Services offering from BOBST.

The company describes the investment as “enabling a new form of cooperative partnership and optimised, connected machinery” in the age of Industry 4.0.

Launched in 2018, the flexo printing press has been designed specifically to address growing interest in printing with the 7-colour Extended Colour Gamut (ECG) – a technology BOBST associates with notable efficiencies and great printing quality.

When we saw the high performance of the machine during printing trials, along with the level of service offered by BOBST, it was clear that we had found the right partner

BOBST Connected Services allows manufacturers to monitor the performance of their machines in real-time and enable them to make informed decisions on improvements. The service also allows access to remote assistance from BOBST remote experts to diagnose and resolve issues.

It was this continued support as well as the performance of the press that attracted Celloclair to purchase the machine. Roger Peter, owner of the Swiss company explains: “One of our company’s mission statements is to offer professional packaging solutions through the use of ultra-modern printing machines.

“When we saw the high performance of the machine during printing trials, along with the level of service offered by BOBST, it was clear that we had found the right partner. Our motto is ‘Make the pleasure visible on the packaging, our new 20SEVEN will help us to continue to do that for many years to come.”
