By linking different steps of the process, Bobst Connect improves efficiency, control, and data knowledge, driving quality and productivity across the value chain.
Bobst Connect Essential includes an end-to-end digital solution, a powerful set of data and digital tools together in one fully connected platform and puts the power and knowledge of Bobst at the fingertips of its users. As a live platform, it will evolve to include new functionalities, new machines and more machine data.
