Koenig & Bauer Durst is scaling up its VariJet 106 build program to cope with high demands for digital production in folding carton markets, which it expects to accelerate further this year.
The announcement comes as two beta sites get under way and the first commercial customer will start live production in the second half of the year.
Printing starts in May at a first beta site of the VariJet 106 B1 single pass digital press for folding carton markets. A second beta test customer, also in central Europe, will begin a few weeks later.
The VariJet 106 is the first joint development between Durst and Koenig & Bauer.
Robert Stabler, managing director of Koenig & Bauer Durst, said, “Built on market-proven technology, the VariJet 106 installations represent huge statements to the market, and we are really pleased with the substantial progress that has been made. Production is being ramped up and new machines will become available in the second half of 2023 on the back of the relatively high demand we are witnessing.”
Koenig & Bauer Durst’s VariJet 106 produces up to 5,500 sheets per hour. It uses water-based inks that are also de-inkable.
