Developed jointly by leveraging the global experience and expertise of the two parent companies, Koenig & Bauer Durst’s VariJET 106 will be the focus of multiple production runs throughout the exhibition. Printed samples for customers to take away will include applications for markets such as pharmaceuticals, health and beauty products, as well as food and beverage.

Koenig & Bauer Durst’s single-pass digital VariJET106 for folding carton markets press will be shown in a hybrid configuration linked to Koenig & Bauer’s industry-acclaimed Rapida offset press technology and workflow. The production story will also include the latest die-cutting and folding gluer technology.

The market-proven Delta SPC 130 used in corrugated markets – another family member in Koenig & Bauer Durst’s single pass digital sheet-fed press portfolio – will also be an important focus at drupa. A control station will be set up on the stand to demonstrate how the Delta SPC 130 works in a production environment utilizing Durst Workflow and Durst Analytics.

Industry firsts such as the announcement of printing on mainly brown substrates with water-based digital white for primary food packaging – announced at the latest SPC Open House – will also be shown. Koenig & Bauer Durst is the first company in the world to offer digital white inks for primary food packaging. This creates new possibilities in packaging, for example printing on plain brown or lower grade white boards.

The SPC Open House at Durst Austria in March was one of two pre-drupa customer-focused events hosted by Koenig & Bauer Durst, the other being the VariJET Open House in Radebeul, Germany, in April.

Daniel Velema, managing director of Koenig & Bauer Durst, said, “We can’t wait to show the VariJET 106, a monster of a machine, in full production flow at drupa. This combines the very best of conventional and digital printing. drupa will be a landmark in our journey within folding carton and corrugated markets. The tipping point is here. Corrugated and folding carton printers/converters who want to increase efficiency, flexibility and work even more closely with brands and retailers recognize that they need to digitize their production environments.

Velema added, “As a global leader in digital sheetfed, single pass press systems and software services for the folding carton and corrugated markets – and with the backing of two giants in the packaging and printing industry – we see huge opportunities to grow substantially over the coming years and continue to support and accelerate our customers’ digital journey.”
