BOBST Selects Absolute Engineering as Partner

United Kingdom -- BOBST, the world's leading supplier of equipment and services to packaging manufacturers, has selected Absolute Engineering Ltd as its exclusive supply partner for woven carbon fibre chambered doctor blade systems.

BOBST announced the product launch at DRUPA 2012 Dusseldorf.

The project was coordinated by John Buchanan (pictured above), service and parts Marketing Manager in Lausanne, and Martin Knight from BOBST UK.

John commented “We have watched Absolute grow in both stature and market share over the past several years. Their woven carbon fibre chambers have achieved significant penetration in the high quality post print market worldwide, and we decided that a partnership was the most logical way to proceed.

Working together, we have developed new tooling to produce a range of woven carbon fibre chambers that are directly interchangeable with our Masterflex 160-A and 203-A as well as Masterflex-L 1.7 and 2.1 ranges of post printers. The chamber also incorporates the latest BOBST patented QUICKLOCK tool free, rapid blade change facility.

This superb new innovation will give our customers the advantages of this high tech material technology combined with the reassurance of a guaranteed branded BOBST product”.
