KBA's Industrial Digital Printing Well Received at Hunkeler Innovationdays
WURZBURG, GERMANY—March 11, 2015—Even though KBA was unable to show a RotaJET press live in operation at the Hunkeler Innovationdays in Lucerne, Switzerland, due to the space available, the company was extremely pleased with the amount of visitors and talks at its stand during the four-day digital printing fair. The stand featured 89 and 168 cm-tall paper reels printed on the new KBA RotaJET L and RotaJET VL that symbolized the inkjet presses’ enormous range of applications in classic market segments, such as book, advertising and publications printing as well as further industrial application fields, like decorative and packaging printing. Interest in the application-specific solutions for various priorities in new markets within the high-volume inkjet printing segment was therefore great.
As an experienced press manufacturer with an extensive product portfolio KBA is also trusted in the digital printing sector with mastering large web widths and challenging substrates. This is reflected in the partnership with Hewlett Packard for the development of the HP T1100 Simplex Color inkjet web press that has a maximum web width of 2.8 m (9.18 ft.) designed for the corrugated packaging market and the delivery of a KBA RotaJET VL with a web width of 1.68 m (5.5 ft.) to a leading German printing firm.
Potential new digital printing users in particular value the level of flexibility offered by the modular RotaJET L (web widths from 895-1,300 mm/35-51") which can also be upgraded after the initial installation.
