Koenig & Bauer unveils Artificial Intelligence with Augmented Reality; “Kyana” will be the voice of digitalisation in coding and marking.
At FachPack, Koenig & Bauer Coding launches Kyana, the company’s first Artificial Intelligence system with an augmented reality application in coding printing.
Koenig & Bauer Coding has been operating under the name KBA-Metronic, until the middle of the year.
In future this technology is expected to help to prevent operating errors, train staff and service technicians, and make processes more efficient. The foundations have been laid for further applications in other areas of Koenig & Bauer.
Artificial Intelligence in coding printing – Kyana speaks to users
Kyana, the alphaJET’s artificial intelligence system, is an extremely effective 4.0 concept that goes far beyond previously known IoT (Internet of Things) applications, especially in B2B. Coding thus emphasises the Koenig & Bauer Group's role as digital trailblazer. The focus is on a valuable digitalisation concept that combines various advantages of the latest technologies in a logical way.
Kyana learns permanently and adapts to various situations, gives advice on process optimisation and thinks one step ahead. The spotlight is on predictive maintenance, increasing availability and ensuring optimal production and printing processes. By means of a very human and simple manner of communication, Kyana supports the user and involves him proactively in a dialogue.
The additional integration of Augmented Reality (AR) enables precise information transfer, both with regard to components and processes within the coding system. The use of virtual content enables a significant increase in production reliability. It also simplifies training and maintenance processes, and transcends distance or language barriers.
Kyana is the evolution to a robotic system and can adapt to individuals and their requirements in the identification process by means of language and AR. It thus sets new standards and demonstrates the immense opportunities of comprehensive digitalisation.
