2. Digital printing: An overview – Part 2

Digital printing opens up a scenario with which all of today’s label and packaging printers have to deal. So it seems appropriate to present the current status of digital packaging printing, explain the benefits and indicate notable conditions. In the first part of this two-part series, we explored the advantages and what to take into account in terms of procedures in packaging printing, like toner, product protection and special colours. Read on for the second part.
3. Digital printing = growth
New presses create more than improved processes — they create new markets. A year ago the shareholders of Koenig & Bauer AG agreed to the conversion of the company into a management holding entity. Four operational subsidiary companies were outsourced for the business areas: digital and web (KBA Digital & Web Solutions), sheet (KBA Sheetfed Solutions), financial securities (KBA Notasys) and production (KBA Industrial Solutions). Flexo & Gravure Global spoke with Christoph Müller, the managing director of KBA-Digital & Web Solutions, on the future prospects of his company.
