- Digital services
- Augmented support
- Market leader in newspaper presses
As a technological pioneer, Koenig & Bauer will once again be presenting new, tailor-made and future-oriented solutions at this year’s IFRA World Publishing Expo (WPE) in Berlin. On a 100m²-large exhibition stand in hall 21a (No. E15), the market leader for medium and high-performance newspaper presses will present its broad product range from 9 to 11 October, as well as new service products for its own and third-party presses (through its subsidiary PHS) in the “Active Corner”. The need for press services has been rising continuously for years due to lower new press investments and the aging machine population. In addition to traditional Koenig & Bauer services such as retrofits, press relocations and upgrades, more and more customers are taking an interest in digital services. Koenig & Bauer offers a wide range of products from augmented support and MobileConsole to digital analysis of pneumatic systems. Koenig & Bauer is already developing artificial intelligence algorithms and optimization methods for proactive action. They can be used to identify patterns ensuring that unscheduled breakdowns can be detected at an early stage, avoided and necessary maintenance tasks can be planned. This pilot project will be presented to trade fair visitors through live demonstrations.
