The Master DM5 – which has Mouvent inkjet digital technology inside, is associated with total flexibility for high value-added labels, with extremely short job setup and fast return on investment. It is the most digitally automated press in the label market, with the highest print quality and productivity.

“The Master DM5 is our first ever fully digitally integrated hybrid press and represents a new era in the production of self-adhesive labels with totally new standards of productivity and profitability,” said Jean-Pascal Bobst, CEO, Bobst. “We can now offer the full range of digital, hybrid and DigiFlexo solutions, which are perfectly integrated, interchangeable and scalable to all present and future needs.”

The master DM5 is the most convenient digital integration available. Immediately it looks different, standing out at first glance, with the smallest footprint in the industry, easy and user-friendly access to digital print heads and the automated set-up of multi-process operations. The digital print engine inside the Master DM5 is made up of Mouvent’s proprietary cluster technology — integrating Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads — which is the innovative basis of the entire range of digital printing machines developed by Mouvent, Bobst’s digital printing competence centre. The Mouvent cluster heads are super compact and simple to change for easy and accessible maintenance, and have all-in-one fully integrated inking, conditioning and electronic circuits for the highest print heads reliability.

“Two of the greatest benefits of the Master DM5 are its productivity and reliability,” said Federico D’Annunzio, program manager, hybrid printing, Bobst. “It represents a total flexo-digital-converting integration, with non-stop productivity, and the highest press uptime in the industry.”
