KBA (UK) announces GENIUS 52UV showcase event

KBA is combining with UK bindery equipment specialist Intelligent Finishing Systems and award-winning Derby-based print house Easibind International to showcase its GENIUS 52UV B3 press and workshop business boosting product options on Wednesday 4 September at Easibind’s production facility at Heanor near Derby; email enquiries@kba-uk.com to reserve your place or book an exclusive demonstration on a date of your choice.

Because the GENIUS has a waterless anilox inking system and a single impression cylinder, there’s none of the complicated fine-tuning associated with litho presses – the image fidelity is determined at pre-press (as with digital systems) and ink values and registration are constant so makeready is typically just 7 minutes and run-up waste just 10 sheets.

As well as offering digital houses the perfect complement for longer runs on all varieties of paper stocks, the GENIUS can also print on just about any type of substrate – including plastics, board, labels, lenticular, wood, metal and foils – virtually anything up to 0.8mm thick. Whether you’re digital, litho or both, the KBA GENIUS opens the door to a whole new range of products to add margin, build business and drive your enterprise forward.

Because the GENIUS is a 5-colour press it’s suitable for those blue chip accounts that require special spot colours – it will even print white – and with its integrated UV system the output is ready for downstream processing and despatch as soon as it rolls off the press.
