ITALY • ACM has commissioned a new nine-colour 670 mm (26”) Bobst M5 press with the same LED UV curing system which Air Motion Systems (AMS) retro-fitted to its Omet VaryFlex F1 530 mm (21”) press at the end of 2014. As part of the agreement ACM has commissioned AMS to triple down with LED UV by replacing the conventional UV system on its eight-unit Omet Varyflex V2 press installed just over a year ago. In 2017, this third install will make ACM the sectors first all-LED UV printing operation.

The Bobst M5’s Digital Automation concept transforms flexo printing and die-cutting into a “digital” process. A “digital workflow” with integrated printing and converting technologies allows for 10 metres (394”) of waste for each job change.
