Koenig & Bauer at K2019
As the technology leader, Koenig & Bauer will again be presenting a multitude of new tailored and future-oriented solutions for its customers at this year’s K2019 fair in Düsseldorf (October 16-23). A joint stand measuring 350 m² has been reserved in Hall 4 (B11) as the platform for Koenig & Bauer Kammann and Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica to showcase a broad portfolio of products for the decoration of hollow containers made of glass, metal and plastic and for the printing of flexible packaging. There will be several live demonstrations of the new Evo XC from Flexotecnica and the K15 M18 from Kammann during the course of each day.
Live presentation of the new compact Evo XC
Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has chosen the K2019 fair to premiere a completely new, extremely compact and highly productive eight-colour CI flexo press. The Evo XC will be offered in two different basic versions, both with an exceptionally small footprint, and promises maximum print lengths up to 850 mm, depending on the version chosen. “We developed the Evo XC to enable efficient printing with environment-friendly water-based inks not only on paper, but also on plastic films,” says Peter Lechner, CEO of Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica. The press implements a raft of innovative features, including new technology solutions for highly efficient drying and intuitive operation. In addition, Koenig & Bauer’s specially developed energy saving package permits energy recovery during production. There will be several live presentations of the new press each day.
Koenig & Bauer Kammann
Koenig & Bauer Kammann will be treating fair visitors to presentations of a fully automatic universal decorating machine of the latest generation, namely a K15 M with 18 processing stations. The configuration on show in Düsseldorf incorporates all the latest technology innovations, such as high‑speed robot systems for the infeed and delivery stations, different variants of camera-based registration, screen printing stations, high-performance curing systems and many other ground‑breaking details. Another innovation to which visitors can look forward is KAMMANN Digital Foiling – a new process for foil application on plastic articles where the primer is applied through a digital printing station. High-resolution digital printing will indeed be an important topic of the fair presentation in general. The focus is to be placed on increased outputs and complex article geometries. Kammann will be showing a broad spectrum of the most varied samples to underline the superior finishing versatility and flexibility of its technologies.
