KBA unveiled the most flexible and the most adaptable high-volume inkjet product series in terms of customer demands currently on the market at World publishing Expo 2014 in Amsterdam.
The digitalisation of the printing industry is progressing. At the same time in the high-volume inkjet printing segment requirements regarding the configuration, features, maximum web width and productivity of digital printing systems are extremely varied in the book, direct mail, magazine, newspaper and industrial printing market segments addressed by the KBA RotaJET. This is in addition to the change in market demands over time due to the increasing expansion of digital printing. KBA is the first manufacturer to take these circumstances into account with the new retrofittable RotaJET L product series available in various web widths, maximum printing widths and colour content. The KBA RotaJET 89 – 130 printing systems based on this new series supplement the RotaJET 76 which is still available.
Future users of the new RotaJET L platform have a huge advantage which allows them to react quickly and economically to changing market conditions and customer demands without the need to invest in entire new kit straight away. The high-performance RotaJET can be optimally configured to suit the respective market and industry environment. The new KBA digital press series includes five RotaJET printing systems which can handle web widths ranging from 895 to 1300mm. As all these new systems have been developed based on an identical platform it is possible to upgrade a KBA RotaJET 89 (web width 895mm) easily and quickly to a RotaJET 100, RotaJET 112, RotaJET 123 or even a premium RotaJET 130 (web width 1300mm). Furthermore, it is also possible to modify a 1C monochrome system into a 4C colour system.
The RotaJET 130 is currently the only high-volume inkjet system with a web width of 1300mm to offer top quality four-colour printing. Therefore the RotaJET 130 represents the ultimate high-end system in high-volume inkjet.
Founded on KBA’s long-term development strategy and the press’ consistent modular design the KBA RotaJET has been designed to be retrofitted with future print head generations. This means that the KBA RotaJET 89–130 platform is the most flexible and future-proof high-volume inkjet system for users currently on the market.
What is more, the RotaJET 89-130 systems do not require any adjustment of the usual web widths or print substrate logistics as they might in web offset printing. Thus the KBA RotaJET can even be integrated into existing offset landscapes without any compromises.
