Kocher+Beck bids on modern technology in tandem with sustainability

Kocher & Beck has embraced sustainability in Brussels, by showcasing its GapMaster EM and TecScreen processing units. The interactive stand, built using sustainable materials, will be reused over several shows in a bid to reduce the company’s carbon footprint. 

The GapMaster EM (Electronic Move) is one of the highlighted technologies at Kocher+Beck’s stand. The company showcases a servo-driven system, the only system on the market to offer both adjustments by a rotary dial and digital input with haptic feedback for the operator. 

From TecScreen, advancements have been made to the ever-popular processing unit, which now offer functionality to store and recycle water, another example of the company’s strides towards sustainability.

For flexible dies, a new generation of anti-stick coating provides a revolutionary non-stick result with less adhesive residue on the cutting edges. The new coating is certified in all applications such as pharma/medical applications (FDA-Certified) and is environmentally compliant.

Kochar+Beck also features advancements in die-cutting with a new Industry 4.0-ready digital KMS Pressure Gauge System equipped with a variety of sensors and offering higher stability under changes of load. 

Further highlights at the stand include the Quick-Change die-cutting station with magnetic cylinders pre-mounted during the current job and can easily swapped in seconds.

The company has partnered with Inspired Print Solutions (IPS) to create its stand for Labelexpo 2023 using sustainable materials. The stand will be reused over several shows in a bid to reduce the carbon footprint of the company. At Labelexpo all materials on the Kocher+Beck stand are either FSC forestry accredited, recyclable, or manufactured from recyclable content. Fixtures that are not manufactured from sustainable materials will be repurposed for 2025 and 2027.

Kocher+Beck group marketing manager Tracey McCarthy said, ‘The entire K+B family is taking seriously the issue of sustainability. We have all seen the reports on the news and must all play our part to reduce our impact on our planet. Combined with our dedicated group Project 1.5 team we have approached the build, design, and reuse of our Labelexpo stand in the most sustainable way possible and with the support of IPS we plan to improve on this each future shows.’ 

The entire stand will be reused excluding the carpet and floor vinyl and the Soyang fabric wall which is both recycled and fully recyclable. IPS is looking for sustainable floor coverings and pledges to have these in place for the 2025 show.
