Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has been a loyal supporter of the Diamond Awards and was one of our first confirmed sponsors for this year’s event.

Koenig & Bauer boasts a tradition in the printing industry of over 200 years. 

The group’s product portfolio includes sheet-fed offset presses in all format classes, flexographic presses, die cutters, folder gluers, inkjet, commercial and newspaper web presses, corrugated presses, special presses for banknotes, metal, glass and plastic decorating. It employs 5.400 workers with 11 factories and records a turnover of €1.150 billion in 2021 through a global sales and service network of more than 30 subsidiaries.

Flexotecnica represents the center of flexographic printing competence since its acquisition and integration in 2013.

Specialized in the design and engineering of CI flexographic printing presses for the most challenging packaging applications on films, paper and board, Flexotecnica exports printing machines of unmatched quality design and manufacture in 63 countries. Advanced press design, as well as modern control systems with intelligent software aim at reducing energy consumption, set-up times and production waste.

The Group’s expertise has paved the way of offering versatile hybrid presses combined with various printing and converting processes. The integration of in-line flexographic or gravure downstream units for all packaging applications on flexibles, paper or board is growing to support converters to face next industry challenges and to meet their sustainability goals.

The latest “X” generation of flexographic presses is focused on producing sustainable package printing by offering alternative ink technologies of water-based or UV LED inks to replace the use of solvent- based inks. Koenig & Bauer flexographic presses feature an efficient drying system, which provides good drying capabilities in case the customer need to switch over to water based printing technology.

Koenig & Bauer’s claim “We’re on it.” gets to the heart of Koenig & Bauer’s values and competences for all target groups which perfectly matches with Flexotecnica’s motto of “Culture of excellence” in the flexographic printing industry.
