Slovak Printers Celebrate New KBA Genius 52UV Investment

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

REM Print s.r.o. of Bratislava, Slovakia, founded only in 2008 and with a staff of just four, is most probably one of the smallest printing companies in the country famous for the Tatra Mountains and the Danube. Nevertheless, this company can be viewed as a pioneer in quite a number of future-oriented printing concepts. For example, the team based around René Ebner and Michael Pala, the two managers of REM Print, have become the very first Slovak printers to invest in a Genius 52UV from KBA-MetroPrint, so expanding their range of everyday and special print products, which represents a clear competitive edge.

Plastics, 3D lenticular sheets, cardboard or paper and processed and non-absorbent surfaces, in other words exclusive substrates in a broad range of thicknesses of 0.1 to 0.8 mm, will now all be new options on offer in the company's product range.

But not only the almost unlimited material processing, ease of use, or the brilliant print quality played a crucial role when buying the machines, explained REM Print managing director René Ebner in more detail: "This investment needs to be viewed as a very clear statement on our part. It's a sign that even small printing shops can operate more successfully than full-service partners, provided they have the right equipment and the necessary vision to act on. Too often in the past we had to turn down many customers' requests, which we could not have easily fulfilled due to our limited technology. We have thus targeted profitable, simple solutions and in doing so were fortunate to discover the Genius 52UV".

Since the Genius 52UV has a waterless and keyless inking unit, inking is absolutely stable. The registry system allows precise positioning during automatic plate changing. This keeps set-up times down to a minimum and means that spoilage during start-up is extremely low: Even the tenth sheet printed is fit for sale or shipment.

"One of the main priorities will now be the 3D lenticular printing. The Genius 52 UV operates economically in waterless offset sheet printing using UV technology. The inks dry very quickly even on the most special plastic or foil material and the printing results are of consistent quality - no matter what kind of material is being printed on.

Another thing that is very important for a company of our size: simple one-man operation, and the a complete job-change within just seven minutes. This all made our purchase decision easier - and the choice was clear" explained managing director René Ebner.

With the investment in a Genius 52UV, REM envisages an effective development that efficiently responds to individual customer requirements in Slovakia, that distinguishes itself from the competition so permitting a successfully transmission into the future.
