Swiss Krono is investing in a RotaJET 225 from Koenig & Bauer for its production facility in Heiligengrabe in the north of Germany. This is the fifth press to be sold to a customer active in the growth market of digital decor printing. Within this category, Swiss Krono is the second producer of wood-based materials to invest in Koenig & Bauer’s digital printing solution.

“With the two different machine classes (L and VL) and three web widths (138cm, 168cm and 225cm) of our RotaJET, we can offer our customers market- and region-specific solutions for the most varied decor applications. We are especially pleased that Swiss Krono has opted for a RotaJET 225,” says Koenig & Bauer board member Christoph Müller. The new digital web press will be entering production in Heiligengrabe in the summer of 2020. Ingo Lehnhoff, managing director of Swiss Krono Tex in Germany says, “The RotaJET 225 from Koenig & Bauer supports the highly efficient realization of shorter runs and we can now bring new decors and products to the market faster than ever before.”
