“Service, quality and further technological advances convinced us once again that we can continue to grow with Koenig & Bauer technology.”

“With the high level of performance seen so far and based on a close working partnership forged over many years, Clifton Packaging were happy to once again work with KBA Flexotecnica.

“Furthermore, Clifton Packaging see the synergies that the wider Koenig & Bauer Group can offer to flexible packaging markets, and we look forward to seeing new developments and new solutions from Koenig & Bauer.”

The company will use the new press, which was fired up in Leicester, England earlier this year, to print flexible packaging.

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.
