Koenig & Bauer has successfully marketed five machines of the CorruCUT series to high-profile users in the corrugated board sector. Following the successful completion of acceptance tests on the beta machines already installed in the market, several more companies are opting to invest in the high-performance CorruCUT.
Said Stefan Segger, sales director at Koenig & Bauer Digital & Webfed: ‘We are confident that we are on the right path – and the lifting of the travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic means that we can resume live presentations of the machines to our customers. The future investments by our customers are the reward for the very good work done over the past years.’
The focus on growth markets such as conventional and digital packaging printing is inherent to Koenig & Bauer’s successful strategy. The new machines are scheduled to commence production next year.
New features generate positive feedback
Koenig & Bauer has continued further development of both the high board line rotary die-cutter CorruCUT and the flexo post-printing press CorruFLEX, incorporating a broad spectrum of new technical features. The new highlights added to the die-cutter, for example, have generated a great deal of positive feedback from the corrugated board industry.
‘Our philosophy is firstly, to understand the precise needs of our customers, and then to scrutinise every action we take in order to determine what we can do even better,’ says Christoph Müller, member of the management board of Koenig & Bauer.
The combination of high print quality, absolute precision and high production outputs represents a real leap forward in printing technologies for the packaging sector. Other unique features of the CorruCUT include a vacuum-belt feeder without feed rollers, a novel anilox roller changing system and the top vacuum stacker.
