Iconic Machine Design & HMI
The clearly structured printing press with a highly individual – yet sophisticated – industrial design language increases safety whilst at the same time reducing failures in operator workflow thanks to a new level of accessibility to equipment. A new intelligent HMI has been introduced to enable simple and intuitive job data input and control of the press functions.
Automatic Impression Settings
The next generation of our proven technology ensures automatic control of print impression positions with minimized material waste and increased production uptime. Integrated in the HMI, the PrintTronic system delivers practical benefits for the operator such as quicker printing impression adjustment on all printing decks at once, no requirement for video cameras or additional external equipment, no need for dedicated marks or sleeves, no ink consumption during the process and compatibility with any type of material, plates or inks.
Doctor Blade Chamber
We have developed a chamber doctor blade system to achieve outstanding printing results. Adjustments are made automatically for accurate and fast job changeovers. A fast clamping system and extra long-lasting doctor blades are made for easy operation and low maintenance. An optimized interior geometry of the chamber with a reduced volume results in additional ink savings and ensures smooth operation with hardly any ink spitting.
An enhanced inter-color and tunnel drying system combines heat transfer efficiency and accurate temperature control in order to ensure constant drying and low energy consumption without sacrificing print quality or damaging the web. Operator-friendliness for maintenance and cleaning is guaranteed by its compact and ergonomic engineering.
The new drying tunnel concept is based on a bi-level arrangement of the drying elements which dramatically reduces the footprint of the machine. Besides that, its compact design results in a considerable waste reduction during start-up.
Inking and Washing System
The WashTronic system optimizes the ink supply and allows the ink to be changed quicker. Thanks to less ink in the circuit, a higher productivity level can be achieved, especially with increasingly shorter jobs. The integrated arrangement of the system reduces the total footprint of the press whilst remaining ergonomic for the operator at the same time.
Energy Recovery Package & Industry 4.0
High efficiency BOSCH-Rexroth brushless motors with inverters and regenerative drives, optimized systems for air and energy recovery are just a few of the valuable energy-saving solutions implemented in this press in order to use natural resources wisely and protect our environment for the benefit of future generations.
In line with Industry 4.0, this machine is equipped with an enhanced service tool which enables efficient communication between your operator or maintenance technician and Keonig & Bauer customer care.
