Digital finishing – Conception and solution KOLBUS KM 200


A few days ago, the Hannover fair - one of the largest industrial fairs - ended. The résumé for the visitors was simple. The industry 4.0 left the development stage and is now moving on into the commercialization. The technologies are ready to be increasingly integrated in the production.

This is accomplished by the KOLBUS KM 200 and therefore it makes the perfect binder unique in its performance class. It links the requirements for high industrial standards in the digital print finishing process and the flexibility and speed of today's and future generation of digital printing machines. 

Nowadays the new production environment is more and more characterised by increased fluctuations regarding order cycles and edition size, movement of seasonal effects and shorter reaction times. For all this changes the KOLBUS KM 200 represents an optimal solution and has proved in multiple successful installations at customers around the globe.

In order to cope with the ongoing changing requirements of our customers the development work goes on. The  focus is on the needs of our customers, of course, as recently done at a project with a customer in Southern Europe:

The target of this project is the "book-of-one production": from two digitally printed rolls - one with content, one with covers - on an inline system a finished book is produced. The centerpiece of this line is the KOLBUS KM 200. Shortly the lasted new development will be installed: the KOLBUS HD-HD 143 for fully automatic 3D setting. 

During drupa 2016 we would like to show and demonstrate to you a similar line for the industrial print finishing of high quality digital printed products on the KOLBUS KM 200 perfect binder and the new KOLBUS HD-HD 143 high performance three knife trimmer. 

We look forward to welcoming you at drupa 2016 on the KOLBUS booth C22 in hall 16.
