Koenig & Bauer has developed a new cutter for gravure presses to enable print businesses with gravure presses to expand their order portfolio. BurdaDruck (Hubert Burda Media), a European gravure printing company, is investing in this new development. Heiko Engelhardt, managing director at BurdaDruck said, “The concept of expanding the cutter convinced us right from the start. As Koenig & Bauer also offers many services for gravure presses and has extensive know-how in this field, we are convinced that we have the right partner at our side.”

The new cutter from Koenig & Bauer will be installed at BurdaDruck’s site in Vieux-Thann, France

The new cutter is to be installed this year as part of a retrofit to the existing press fleet at the Burda printing site in Vieux-Thann, France. “This investment will enable us to offer our customers a larger product portfolio in the future. It will also help us to produce small volumes from eight pages, glued with a two-page jump. The format variability of gravure printing allows considerable savings in paper consumption through optimum formats, which is a major requirement of our customers as paper prices are increasing,” said Ingo Raab, sales manager at BurdaDruck.
