drupa 2016 – KOLBUS sets new standards and records

11 days in Düsseldorf – a lot of work, a lot of fun and an overwhelming result. The numerous international visitors were inspired of the variety and variability of the KOLBUS production solutions, which were exhibited in the booth.

According to the motto >Printopolis<, KOLBUS presented different business models.

The center of the classical production was formed around the latest generation, the new KM 610 perfect binder. The demonstration included a repeated changeover of two different productions – formats and types of glue (Hotmelt and PUR) – with a changeover time of less than 1.5 minutes!

The digital printing post press was represented by the slogan >from the digital printed role to the finished hardcover book< and contained the entire KOLBUS production of digital hardcover manufacturing. Thereby, the complete production process was demonstrated impressively with different contents, format dimensions and format thicknesses in less than 30 minutes!

The special feature: the KOLBUS inline solution works fully automatic. The so-called 3D adjustment ensures that the perfect binder KM 200, the three knife trimmer HD-HD 143 as well as the book production line BF 513 will adjust individually and product-specific.

The result: A complete inline manufacturing of different books in a first-class quality.

Besides the post press area, KOLBUS demonstrated the luxury packaging production. Specially, this year’s drupa was the first one for the new KOLBUS business segment. The modularly engineered system convinces by an extremely high productivity. In addition, existing KOLBUS machines can also be used. The system bribes with shortest set-up times because a product change is based on minimal adjustment processes and not on complicated and extensive modifications. The flexible KOLBUS solution generates with more than 2,000 packages completely new market opportunities.

Conclusion: This year’s drupa had been a complete success for KOLBUS. Numerous and enthusiastic exhibition visitors contributed and enjoyed a great atmosphere on the booth and sales at record level.
