Press release from the issuing company

May 23, 2005 -- KBA North America, a leading sheetfed offset press manufacturer based in Williston, Vt., is offering a complete guide to waterless offset technology in the second issue of its Process magazine. Because KBA is a leader in waterless offset technology, the 80-page magazine is an indispensable guide that covers the current approaches to waterless offset, the consumables needed, the cost-efficiencies gained in waterless offset, the environmentally-friendly aspect, the handling, the applications, and the outlook. Within Process magazine, industry experts review the current and future potential of waterless, keyless offset for markets ranging from high-quality commercials and packaging to newspapers, digital data media and plastic film. Its information-packed pages look back on waterless’s evolution, identify suitable consumables and discuss recent advances in core and related technologies along with the rapidly expanding range of applications, particularly in tandem with UV. Over the past ten years KBA has been a leading innovator in waterless printing processes with the aim of standardizing sheetfed and web offset production to deliver a repeatably high level of excellence.

The technological challenges involved in developing the individual products – temperature control, inking, plate life, environmental issues, cost-efficiency – and how they were overcome are also detailed in this issue, along with user reports and future prospects.
