BEIL announced as the official system partner of Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA)

BEIL Registersysteme GmbH: Technology leadership for the future

(PresseBox) ( Abensberg, )
At this year’s IFRA Expo, Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) will present a novel automated plate logistics concept under the name of KBA PlateTrans, a concept jointly developed with BEIL Registersysteme GmbH. At the same time, BEIL will officially be introduced as KBA’s new partner. As a modular automated building block, the plate transfer system between the CTP pre-stage and the printing machine will increase the productivity and efficiency of high-end newspaper production.

The machinery of modern newspaper printing shops can roughly be divided into three segments: the fully automated CTP pre-stage in which data is exposed on the printing plates, the fully automated printing machine in which the data is printed in color on paper, and, the most manual transport system in between, which has existed in this form for many years. BEIL Registersysteme GmbH, based in Abensberg (Germany), has set itself a clear goal: To enhance the efficiency reserves present in the manual transport system, to increase productivity in newspaper print and to shorten the time required between the release of data for exposure and the printing of the newspaper.

From the first ideas a few years ago, a modular building block concept was developed for an automated system that is easily and flexibly added to almost all CTP pre-stages and printing machines. The plate transfer system is an individual building block that, given the continuous development of large printers, is easily adaptable to changing system environments and thereby guarantees long-term investment security.

As a producer of large printing machines, Koenig & Bauer AG has taken the plate logistics system developed by BEIL and adapted it to its compact rotation Cortina and Commander CT. Koenig & Bauer AG’s decision was based on the fact that, with regard to the newspaper printers’ future requirements, media and wage pressured companies in- and outside of Europe are increasingly looking for the necessary flexibility and deciding in favor of highly automated, compact systems.

More information regarding the new printing machines with the BEIL plate logistics system will be shared by KBA at the IFRA Expo Press Conference on October 12th at 1.30 p.m. in the ‘Schubert4’ room at the Vienna Conference Center.
BEIL Registersysteme will be located at the IFRA Expo in Hall B, Stand 710. KBA is located next door at Stand 610.
