Koenig & Bauer concludes cooperation for further development of RotaJET

Koenig & Bauer has concluded a cooperation agreement for the further development of the RotaJET. With a new press for digitally printed flexible and extensible film, Koenig & Bauer is strengthening its strategic focus on the growth market of flexible and extensible film and digital presses. The press is to be developed on the basis of the RotaJET, and the first installations are expected to commence production of digitally printed flexible and extensible film in the coming year.

Our RotaJET is already well established on the market when it comes to paper applications and decor printing. As the next step, we now want to venture further into digital printing on flexible and extensible films together with one of the top global players in this field,” says Koenig & Bauer board member Christoph Müller.

The press will feature a maximum web width of 1,380 millimeter and will be able to print on both sides of films with a thickness between 0.12 and 0.3 millimeter. “Koenig & Bauer has built a reputation as a pioneer of high performance, industrial ecological inkjet printing. With our partner, the new press, and its water-based inks, we will be in an even better position to promote sustainability and plan to change the face of the market with digital print for flexible and extensible film aimed at providing improved colour precision and additional printing options,” added Christoph Müller.

Spot colours such as white or metallic colors can then be printed in an inkjet process.
