Koenig & Bauer Celmacch is now offering inside and outside printing in a single pass.
Luca Celotti, CEO, Koenig & Bauer Celmacch, says, “This trend has completely transformed the industry, with a particular focus on corrugated packaging. For box factories, it has become essential to be able to print quickly and at low cost, even inside the box, to get the so-called wow-effect during unboxing or to simply print instructions and how-to-use.”
Hannah Potrawa, Director Corrugated, Koenig & Bauer, adds, “We offer all price and performance levels. With the presettable die-cutting unit for the Chroma X Pro, and the Top-Bottom-Printing for the Chroma High Tech and Chroma Smart, we can really satisfy almost all Customer’s needs.”
After successful tests of the Chroma Smart 2S in the workshop in Desenzano, the first machine is currently ready to be installed at at a customer site soon.
The new HBL Chroma 2S technology produces at a maximum speed of 10,000 sheets per hour. Furthermore, the printing units for inside printing are equipped with the automatic systems of the Chroma High Tech or Chroma Smart series. Thanks to an innovative solution, foundation pits or changes are not necessary. Nevertheless, the machine operator has easy and ergonomic access to change the cliché in all printing units. The number of the colours is freely configurable. Thanks to the user-friendly construction, the bottom printing units, when not in production, can be prepared for follow-up process without stopping the machine.
