Bobst accelerates its digital journey

Bobst Group and SEI Laser are set to join forces to accelerate the development of digital laser cutting solutions for the label and packaging industry. The synergies between both companies will enable them to develop new solutions and approaches answering the needs of converters globally.

The new activity will develop and commercialise digital laser cutting solutions for the labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated industries.

Bobst has also confirmed the acquisition of the remaining 49.9% in Mouvent AG to reinforce the development of its printing portfolio. The company acquired 50.1% of RADEX in June 2017 to develop Mouvent AG, a start-up company focusing on digital inkjet printing. The intent was to explore and deliver the next innovations to transform packaging production. The work accomplished over the last three years has been fruitful and positive.

With this acquisition, Bobst says it is poised to further accelerate its leadership in the printing and converting industries. New digital inkjet platforms and new water-based inks will soon be announced, answering the sustainability requirements and shaping the future of the packaging world.
