Koenig & Bauer unveils upgraded global Customer Experience Centre
The new hall in Radebeul has more than Customer Experience Centre 3,000m2 of demonstration floor space in Radebeul.
Koenig & Bauer recently opened its new hall and now offers more than 3,000m2 of floor space for print demonstrations at its Radebeul location.
The occasion marked the culmination of a project to upgrade the company’s existing demonstration facility into a global Customer Experience Centre (CEC).
The upgraded CEC now offers visitors around one-third more space for press and machine demonstrations, application testing, the development of new technologies and for training purposes. The individual sections focus on the specialised areas of packaging, commercial and label production.
The new hall, the Packaging Competence Centre within the CEC, will house three packaging lines comprising three printing presses and four post-press machines once fully set up. Koenig & Bauer will then be able to showcase its one-stop-shop concept for packaging production with flat-bed and rotary die-cutters, folder-gluers and fully automated material flows.
The machinery that is already installed and ready for demonstrations includes a latest-generation medium-format sheetfed offset press, this being a Rapida 106 X with seven printing units, double-coating facilities, an additional printing unit after the first coater and the coil foil system FoilTronic, as well as an Omega Allpro 110 folder-gluer and a CutPRO X 106 rotary die-cutter. The next step will see the addition of a Rapida 145 and a CutPRO M 144.
