Bobst, a leading supplier of equipment and services to packaging and label manufacturers, and Radex, a start-up company owned by multiple stakeholders with a long track record in the field of DOD inkjet digital printing, have opened a joint venture, Mouvent, a new company in Switzerland, focussed on digital print using pioneering digital technology.

Mouvent will become the digital printing competence centre and solutions provider of Bobst. The company, which is comprised of 80 employees, will focus on inventing and delivering the future of digital printing. Central to the digital innovation at Mouvent is an ingenious digital printing technology developed by Radex, which is based on a highly integrated cluster and represents a quantum leap for the industry. Thanks to its intelligent and compact design, it will be the centrepiece of revolutionary new machines developed by Mouvent for a wide variety of markets such as textile, labels, corrugated board, flexible packaging, folding carton and more.

Along with digital printing presses, Mouvent offers a fully integrated, complete solution; it develops, engineers, tests, and industrialises digital printers based on the Mouvent Cluster, it writes the software around the printers, develops inks and coatings for various substrates, as well as providing a full servicing offering.

The company is promising a new standard in inkjet label production cost and quality, in ink pricing, head durability, quality, and machine performance. Its first machine that has been launched is an innovative, highly productive digital printer for textiles, which prints with up to eight colours, and there is a full product pipeline to follow. The innovative cluster design is the base building block for all systems, current and in development.

Mouvent printers are the smallest digital printers, closer to desktop printing than to traditional analogic printers like flexo, making them very compact, light-weighted, and easily accessible. The modular, compact system allows easier settings and start-up with less fine adjustments required resulting in a productivity boost. The compact design has many other benefits, including smaller footprint, faster change-over, simple implementation and low cost.

Simon Rothen, CEO of Mouvent said, “We are very excited to start rolling out the pipeline in the months ahead. Today is the announcement of an exciting journey of bringing large-scale digital printing to various industries. The digital printing solutions offered by Mouvent will present new opportunities for all sorts of companies, bringing more flexibility, unmatched productivity, shorter time to market and infinite variation, all with a very compact and energy efficient design.” (GK)
