The Evo XD press features eight printing units, a new dryer generation and drive and control technology.

With a web width of 1,320mm and a cut-off of 370 to 1,000mm, the press is designed to meet high-quality requirements on a wide range of substrates.

Additionally, the flexo press comprises an energy-saving ventilation system in the bridge dryer and the fully automatic AIF impression setting system, which eliminates the need for ink during the adjustment process.

Koenig & Bauer noted that the press can run at speeds of up to 500m per minute depending on substrate.
