KBA Promotes Large-Format Leadership and Wide Range of Press Models
The centerpiece of the booth will be the award-winning Genius 52 UV digital offset press, a recipient of the prestigious PIA/GATF InterTech award in 2006. The Genius 52 UV is a one-operator press designed to print on a variety of stock including paper, board, plastic and lenticular. Using a central impression cylinder, the Genius 52 UV ensures accurate registration with full automation and immediate drying using its UV ink system. The Genius 52 UV can print 0.06 mm paper up to 32 pt. board stock as well as plastics and lenticular stock. With its ultra-short make-ready of less than 15 sheets - based on the Gravuflow keyless inking system - and make-ready times of less than 5 minutes, the Genius 52 UV press is the perfect tool for the short run commercial, packaging and advertising specialty markets.
After visitors learn about KBA's new automation and equipment, they are invited before and after show hours to travel off-site and see KBA's modern equipment in action. A number of KBA customers in the Chicagoland region are opening their doors for tours of their facilities.
