Further KBA Press for Schaffrath

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

The association between German multimedia service provider schaffrath medien in Geldern, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) continues with a contract for a new-generation KBA C48 (48pp) commercial web offset press to replace a non-KBA model. Two years ago Schaffrath installed the first KBA C16 on the market, and reaffirmed its confidence in KBA technology shortly afterwards with the addition of a medium-format KBA Rapida 106 litho press.

Precision in print
Schaffrath medien's watchwords in production are diligence and precision. Its web and sheetfed presses print magazines, catalogues, inserts and posters. The web department alone prints over 200 periodicals with small, medium and high-volume circulations. The company seeks to maintain a perfect combination of man and machine - which is why the number of KBA presses is steadily rising.

Productivity gain through automation
The new 48pp KBA C48 will sport an array of automation modules including proven KBA RollerTronic roller locks to minimise maintenance input while enhancing energy efficiency, and ErgoTronic control technology to cut makeready times and waste levels. LogoTronic presetting software for the new press will be embedded in the existing LogoTronic Professional data-capture and MIS networking system connected to the KBA C16.

The 50,000iph, double-circumference KBA C48 will be equipped with automatic plate changers to boost productivity by accelerating job changes. Other productivity-enhancing features will include KBA EasyTronic for fast, low-waste press start-up and run-down. The new KBA C48 will come on stream next summer.
