The Evolution of KBA Printing Presses


Sheetfed Printing Press Advances

Both web and sheetfed printing presses use similar printing techniques: They apply water and ink to rollers, which press against paper to print an image. Because of the different ways they process the paper itself, though, Sheetfed presses have long been the go-to alternative to web presses. Unlike web presses, which are generally considered better-suited for fast-paced printing on absorbent materials for mass-market production (like newspapers), sheetfed presses are renowned for their ability to print on glossier materials. Some KBA printing machines have taken this even further.

For example, in one of its models, KBA has taken water out of the equation entirely, making it easy to print on an even wider variety of materials. In this sheetfed model, there are no rollers or water, which simplifies the process and saves you the trouble of monitoring the balance between ink and water that can ruin a print job. It also enables manufacturers to print on non-absorbent materials, because it cures the ink with UV technology. Advances like these in their sheetfed printing machines make KBA machines fast, reliable and innovative.

Since its founders started the company in the early 1800s, KBA has been on the forefront of developments in printing press technology. The first ever steam-driven printing press to produce a newspaper was made by company co-founder Friedrich Koenig, and history didn’t stop there-as KBA printing machines embrace technological innovation in digital, web and sheetfed printing, presses are capable of producing more and more high quality prints in less and less time. Whether you’re looking for a new or a used press, a KBA could provide exactly what you’re looking for.

Webfed Press Evolution

KBA shipped its first webfed press in 1876, but it was far from the last one. KBA presses today can crank out up to 80,000 copies in a single hour-significantly more than in the 19th century. Modern printing machines are much more sophisticated than they once were, taking advantage of the latest digital technological advances to make printing faster, safer, more precise and energy-efficient. Printing presses are designed to take up less space and generate less waste, both in the form of emissions and in the form of paper and ink that could otherwise be wasted by malfunctions or imprecise printing.

Printing in the Digital Age

Some of the company’s first presses may have been powered by steam, but modern KBA presses truly belong in the digital age. For example, the company manufactures digital printing machines that make projects like on-demand printing and mass personalization possible. Not only that, but these and other presses are equipped with modern technology that makes it easier for technicians and operators to use the machinery. LCD screens, touch screen technology and other innovations make KBA’s products easier to use than ever before.
