At 15 October 2013, Bobst Manchester Ltd will be holding an Open House at the Heywood technology Centre. Customers who attend will witness a next generation K5000 machine with the focus on high barrier metallization.

The day will consist of technical presentations and two live machine demonstrations: The first will be a High OD aluminium metallization with real-time pinhole detection and reporting functionality. BOBST’s General Hawkeye is a monitoring system that at full metallizer speed, detects, counts and categorises pinholes and other defects from 0.1 mm upwards. Hawkeye has a reporting option, which generates reports as PDF files. The use of this option ensures that production is not interrupted.

The second demonstration will be a clear barrier coating (AlOx) at high speed as a alternative to PVDC and EVOH. The application is available for coating a wide range of films including PET, BOPP, CPP, PLA and other types of plastic films. The coated film can be used for end products including baked goods and microwaveable products.
