Zöllner-Wiethoff, a leading gift wrapping manufacturer, is investing in a CI flexo printing press from Koenig & Bauer. The ultramodern Evo XG 8 + 1 is scheduled to enter production in early 2021 and will be used to print wrapping paper of all kinds. “We attach particular importance to the ecological and quality aspects of our products. The Evo XG is here precisely the kind of machine we were looking for. We are convinced that we have made the right decision and that we will be able to strengthen our position as European market leaders further,” says Jürgen Popp, owner and managing director of Zöllner-Wiethoff. The company’s use of a wide range of different papers, some with a high proportion of recycled fibers, along with a seemingly endless diversity of designs printed exclusively with water-based inks, all had to be taken into consideration in the technical configuration for a new press.

An innovative company with a long tradition

Zöllner-Wiethoff was founded by Franz Zöllner-Wiethoff in Oberlauter in Northern Bavaria over 70 years ago and is currently managed by the third generation of the founding family. The company has been printing exclusively with water-based inks for more than 20 years. It has developed into one of the most significant manufacturers of high-quality, sustainable gift packaging in Europe. More than 200 million meters of gift-wrapping paper are printed every year.

Arno Vogelhuber, senior sales manager at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica, says, “We accepted the challenge posed by the customer’s special requirements and, over the course of the project, have demonstrated that we are the ideal partner for Zöllner-Wiethoff. Presses from Koenig & Bauer stand for sustainability, quality, and performance-based on optimally suitable technical equipment.”

The Evo XG is a highly automated flexo printing press embodying top-class technologies for production speeds up to 600 meters a minute. Consistent automation, paired with a robust and ergonomic design is the key to exceptional performance in terms of both quality and productivity.
