Koenig & Bauer launches new Evo XC compact CI flexo press
Newly-designed high performance flexographic press provides profitable short- and mid-size print runs.
Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica recently launched a brand new high performance compact CI flexo press the Evo XC to join its well-established line of Evo models. The eight-colour press offers one of the smallest footprints in the industry and is available in two different versions with a maximum repeat length of up to 850 mm and printing speeds up to 400 m/min.
“This press represents state-of-the-art technology for newcomers as well as experienced printers (e.g. from the rotogravure industry) who want to enter the CI flexo market in a budget-friendly way,” said Preston Neetzel, sales director-flexo of the Web & Specialty Press Division at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica.
“We developed the Evo XC to enable efficient printing with environment-friendly water-based inks not only on paper, but also on plastic films. The Evo XC is aimed at flexible packaging printers who are seeking a space-saving solution and considerable energy savings at the same time. This small-sized machine can be an additional press to an existing wide-web machine converter in order to achieve a new level of cost-efficiency.”
Wrapped in the iconic Koenig & Bauer design, the Evo XC features traditionally solid machine engineering in combination with the intuitive HMI, a completely new dryer concept as well as the latest digital Industry 4.0 features, which herald a new era in terms of output efficiency, production uptime and operator-friendliness.
The new Evo XC from Flexotecnica made its maiden debut at the K2019 fair in Düsseldorf, and will next appear at the Koenig & Bauer booth at Drupa 2020 in Düsseldorf.
