Koenig & Bauer has concluded a cooperation agreement for the further development of the RotaJet. With a new press for digitally printed flexible and extensible film, using water-based inks, the company is strengthening its strategic focus on this segment’s growth market. The press is to be developed on the basis of the RotaJet and the first installations are expected for 2021.

“Our RotaJet is already well established on the market when it comes to paper applications and decor printing. As the next step, we now want to venture further into digital printing on flexible and extensible films together with one of the top global players in this field,” said Koenig & Bauer board member Christoph Müller.

The press will feature a maximum web width of 1,380 mm and will be able to print on both sides of films with a thickness ranging from 0.12 and 0.3 mm. It will also offer additional colours, flexible materials and promote sustainability.

“Koenig & Bauer has built a reputation as a pioneer of high performance, industrial ecological inkjet printing. With our partner, the new press and its water-based inks, we will be in an even better position to promote sustainability, and plan to change the face of the market with digital print for flexible and extensible film aimed at providing improved colour precision and additional printing options,” added Müller.

Spot colours, such as white or metallic shades, can then be printed in an inkjet process.
