Feb. 5, 2024 - Bobst North America has announced plans to open a new competence center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The new facility is scheduled to open its doors on April 15-16, 2024. At this event, visitors will gain valuable insights into the future of label and flexible packaging production through live demos, presentations from industry experts, and exclusive networking opportunities.

"We're very excited to unveil the new Atlanta Competence Center, as we welcome visitors to two days of engagement, information, and experience," said Emilio Corti, Regional Business Director, Americas. "This event will mark the start of the center functioning as a prime hub of innovation for the US market, with easy access to our latest technologies, including the 'One complete solution' for flexible packaging, digital printing technologies, and the BOBST Connect platform."

The new facility will be around five times larger than the previous demo center in Alpharetta. Notably, it will feature BOBST's flexo, digital, and all-in-one printing - as well as laminating - technologies for both flexible packaging and labels, helping to unlock new potential for printers.

"As a working environment, the center will enable us to support customers better and fully train operators to maximize their investments by ensuring greater efficiency, productivity, and sustainability," Corti added.

Among the machinery in focus will be the VISION CI flexo press, which combined with the NOVA SX 550 solventless laminator offers a fully optimized flexible packaging workflow, known as 'One complete solution.'

In terms of digital printing capabilities, the DIGITAL MASTER 340 All-in-One modular and upgradable platform for high-throughput and large-sized label production, along with the recently introduced DIGITAL EXPERT 340 label press, will be presented.

Bobst is one of the world's leading suppliers of substrate processing, printing and converting equipment and services for the label, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated industries.
