SWISS KRONO is investing in a RotaJET 225 from Koenig & Bauer for its production facility in Heiligengrabe in the north of Germany. This is already the fifth press to be sold to a customer active in the growth market of digital decor printing, and SWISS KRONO is already the second producer of wood-based materials to invest in Koenig & Bauer’s digital printing solution. “With the two different machine classes (L and VL) and the different web widths (138cm, 168cm and 225cm) of our RotaJET, we can offer our customers market- and region-specific solutions for the most varied decor applications. We are especially pleased that SWISS KRONO has opted for a RotaJET 225,” says Koenig & Bauer board member Christoph Müller. The new digital web press will be entering production in Heiligengrabe in summer 2020.
