Four companies from the KBA Group will showcase a selection from their wide range of solutions at this year's interpack in Düsseldorf, on a joint stand in Hall 12 (Stand No. C36).
The Koenig & Bauer Group meanwhile makes almost 70 % of its sales of new presses with printing, marking, finishing and further processing technologies in the growing packaging market.
Digital communication between man, machine and product is a central issue for the marking specialists at KBA-Metronic.
In the age of the smart factory, the camera-readable coding of products is a precondition for automated processes – from detection in packaging lines to traceability in logistics and trade. Increasing individualisation and mandatory product information require powerful and flexible marking solutions.
Metronic marking systems with the code-M software module allow, among other things, the centralised administration of print jobs, the monitoring of entire marking lines and the integration of camera control systems.
With the code-M data module, data from databases can be inserted into printed texts. Printing systems and fields are detected automatically, and the form of the imprints is user-definable. With the code-M data and code-M editor modules, many users can create sophisticated text layouts themselves.
The job preparation department can carry out layout adjustments, and the marketing department can quickly implement advertising campaigns with action codes.
For the first time, KBA-Metronic will also be presenting the betaJET xenio. The tried and tested DOD inkjet system is highly versatile.
KBA-Metronic regards the marking of products and packaging as an integrated process, and cooperates closely with users and mechanical engineers on new developments.
The product portfolio with thermal, inkjet, laser and combined printer units covers current market requirements.
