KBA Compacta 618 moving from Portugal to Italy

Press release from the issuing company

With its decision in favour of a 48-page Compacta 618, the Italian company Azienda Commerciale Meridionale from Torre Del Greco on the outskirts of Naples has once more invested in a highly automated commercial web press from Koenig & Bauer. KBA-Digital & Web is taking care of the relocation, installation and commissioning. “We are very pleased to be able to continue our successful partnership with ACM,” says Thomas Potzkai, head of service at KBA-Digital & Web. The press is scheduled to enter production at the end of 2016. ACM already operates a 16-page Compacta 215.

Healthy growth

Azienda Commerciale Meridionale is a third-generation family business and is widely known for its innovative and high-quality print products tailored specifically to individual customer needs. The company has recorded continuous and healthy growth ever since its founding more than 50 years ago. ACM general manager Giuseppe Gentile: “We are extremely satisfied with the reliability and quality of our Compacta 215 from Koenig & Bauer. It was thus only logical that we should choose to work with Koenig & Bauer again.”

Flexible automation

The 48-page Compacta 618 is engineered for a cylinder circumference of 1240mm (48.81in) and a maximum web width of 1450mm (57.1in). It features a Patras M reel-loading system, Pastomat RC reelstand, infeed unit, four printing units, chill-roller stand, an innovative superstructure and a P5 pin folder. The management system KBA LogoTronic handles the loading of job and presetting data, as well as production monitoring and evaluation.
