Koenig & Bauer Durst VariJet: printing live for first time

The new VariJet 106 has been printing live for the first time, streamed from the factory. The hybrid press from the Koenig & Bauer Durst joint venture integrates the proven Durst inkjet technology into the platform of the Rapida medium-format presses.

The joint venture is developing VariJet 106 as a seven-colour, 6000sph press with water-based inks, as the company believes they are best suited for food packaging, with the importance likely to heighten due to issues around food security and food provenance.

Koenig & Bauer is also giving a presentation on how networked machines, the use of artificial intelligence, and other data-based services can help printers make their processes even more efficient.

The focus of the virtual trade fair appearance for Koenig & Bauer is packaging production. Folding cartons, corrugated board or films – it has press solutions for various applications in its portfolio. The workflow for folding carton production can be seen live at virtual.drupa.

The entire workflow, from printing and die-cutting to gluing, is carried out on Koenig & Bauer presses: the Rapida 106 X, the CutPro X 106 and the Omega Allpro 110.

Visitors are also able to gain an insight into packaging and decorative printing with the RotaJet single-pass digital press and flexo printing for short and medium runs with the Evo XC. In the segment of corrugated printing and converting, Koenig & Bauer is presenting the CorruJet, CorruCut and CorruFlex.
