Koenig & Bauer
The new High Board Line Chroma 2S technology produces at a max. speed of 10000 sheets per hour.

Koenig & Bauer Celmacch offers the new technology of inside and outside printing in a single pass to all companies of the corrugated industry. The two-sided printing in one single working process allows not only a significant increase in efficiency but also a considerable reduction of production costs, the company said in a release.

Luca Celotti, CEO of Koenig & Bauer Celmacch, says, “This tendency has completely transformed the cardboard industry, with a particular focus on corrugated packaging. For box factories, it has become essential to be able to print quickly and at low cost, even inside the box, to get the so-called “wow-effect” during unboxing or to simply print instructions and how-to-use.“

Hannah Potrawa, director of Corrugated at Koenig & Bauer, underlines: “We offer all price and performance levels. With the presettable die-cutting unit for the Chroma X Pro, and the Top-Bottom-Printing for the Chroma High Tech and Chroma Smart, we can really satisfy almost all Customer’s needs.” After successful tests of the Chroma Smart 2S in our workshop in Desenzano, the first machine is currently ready to be installed at one of a customer’s premises, he said.

Chroma 2S, modularly retrofittable

The new high board lChroma 2S technology produces at a maximum speed of 10,000 sheets per hour. Furthermore, the printing units for inside printing are equipped with the well-known automatizations of the Chroma High Tech or Chroma Smart series.

Because of the innovative solution, foundation pits or changes are not necessary. Nevertheless, the machine operator has easy and ergonomic access to change the cliché in all printing units. The number of colors is freely configurable, and it is thus possible to fulfill almost all customer needs.

The bottom printing units momentarily not in production can be prepared for the follow-up process without stopping the machine. In this way, the new Chroma 2S technology opens new market potentials for our Customers, featuring also an optimal price/performance ratio.

Koenig & Bauer strengthens its presence in the market for machines processing corrugated cardboard

The focus on the growth market, and on both conventional and digital packaging printing, is a key factor of the strategy of Koenig & Bauer. After re-entering the market for machinery in the field of corrugated cardboard processing, the company continued this route.

Due to the new partnership with the Italian Company Celmacch, Koenig & Bauer widened its large product portfolio in last September 202. Both companies have more than 40 years of experience in the field of processing corrugated cardboard and more than 200 years of printing technology on different levels.

With the Chroma X Pro Series, Koenig & Bauer successfully developed and placed highly-automated machinery in the market. With ChromaCUT Smart and ChromaCUT HighTech, through the partnership with Celmacch, Koenig & Bauer offers nowadays a wide-ranging product portfolio for all prices and performance stages.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
