There will be several live demonstrations of the new Evo XC from Flexotecnica and the K15 M18 from Kammann during the course of each day.
Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has chosen the K2019 fair to premiere a completely new, ex-tremely compact and highly productive eight-color CI flexo press. The Evo XC will be of-fered in two different basic versions, both with a small footprint, and offers maximum print lengths up to 850 mm, depending on the version chosen.
“We developed the Evo XC to enable efficient printing with environment-friendly water-based inks not only on paper, but also on plastic films,” said Peter Lechner, CEO of Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica.
Koenig & Bauer Kammann will be treating fair visitors to presentations of a fully automat-ic universal decorating machine of the latest generation, namely a K15 M with 18 pro-cessing stations. The configuration on show in Düsseldorf incorporates all the latest tech-nology innovations, such as high‑speed robot systems for the infeed and delivery stations, different variants of camera-based registration, screen printing stations, high-performance curing systems and many other ground‑breaking details.
Another innovation is KAMMANN Digital Foiling, a new process for foil application on plas-tic articles where the primer is applied through a digital printing station. High-resolution digital printing will be an important topic of the fair presentation in general. The focus is to be placed on increased outputs and complex article geometries.
