For a visitor, Drupa can be a culture shock at best of times. There is so much to see, there is so much to hear, there is so much to learn. Therefore, it’s important for a visitor to do his homework: know what is in store at the world’s largest printing equipment exhibition.
This Drupa will see six highlight themes, which aim to respond to the change seen in the print and media industry, with exhibitors set to showcase state-of-the-art technologies and new solutions.
In the last calendar year, the company sold seven high-configured sheetfed offset presses in India. And KBA goes to the show with the slogan – Add more KBA to your day – with a focus on performance, reliability, quality and economy.
During Drupa 2012, we saw high-speed web-fed inkjet through Kodak, HP, Fujifilm, Impika, and KBA, joining Oce, Ricoh and Screen.
While Fujifilm already has Jetpress 720S and Screen has Truepress JetSX in the B2 sheetfed inkjet space, Komori and Konica Minolta will launch their co-developed B2 printer along with the already developed B2 sheetfed inkjet press, the Impremia IS29. Konica Minolta, will sell an almost identical machine under the KM-1 badge. I’ve already mentioned Heidelberg’s PrimeFire 106 sheetfed inkjet press in the B1 space under the theme – packaging.
Canon’s first cut-sheet inkjet press, Oce Varioprint i300, which was announced in 2015, will also join the inkjet party.
