    Oosterhout, 24 March 2017 – Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) and Koenig & Bauer (KBA) can look back on a successful partnership which has meanwhile endured for a whole two decades. QIPC’s cooperation with the world’s oldest and second-largest press manufacturer began back in 1997, just one year after the company was first established. The young start-up was offered the chance to integrate its newly developed register scanning heads into KBA’s web offset presses for trial purposes. Read more ...

    Würzburg, 22.03.2017 – Backed by a significant increase in revenue and profit, the Koenig & Bauer group largely achieved or even exceeded the medium-term targets that it had issued at the beginning of 2015 with unprecedently high margins in 2016. “The profitable growth was generated in existing and new packaging markets, from industrial applications in digital web printing and the continued expansion of service business – despite the absence of any macroeconomic support,” said CEO Claus Bolza-Schünemann. “With all segments operating profitably, we were able to achieve a further goal,” added CFO Dr Mathias Dähn. “After a decade of declining revenue and unsatisfactory margins, we want our shareholders to receive a fair portion of this success. Accordingly, the management board and the supervisory board will be asking the shareholders to approve a dividend of €0.50 per share at the annual general meeting on 23 May 2017.” Read more ...

    Regensburg, 08.03.2017 – The German software publisher, OneVision Software, will shortly be launching a new release of its prepress workflow software Asura. With the launch of this new version, Asura Family 17.1, OneVision Software will offer its customers the option of expanding their prepress workflows with a trapping module. Two different trapping options have been developed for newspaper publishers as well as offset and digital printers that enable printing without unsightly white spaces. With PDF trapping, the Asura plugin PlugCOMMERCIAL-PRINTin is used to generate an additional layer to the original file, which allows the customer to validate the trapping result as needed and, if required, to make manual adjustments. With In-RIP Trapping, trapping takes place during halftone printing, which is performed using the Asura plugin PlugRASTER-HDin and is thus incorporated into the prepress workflow. Read more ...

    Düsseldorf, 14. März 2017 – Im Rahmen eines Workshops stellte Fujifilm am 14. Februar 2017 in seiner Europazentrale in Düsseldorf die neue Version 5 seines Elara-Workflows vor, die der Zeitungsproduktion bislang nicht gekannte Möglichkeiten bietet. Mehrere Teilnehmer aus diversen Zeitungshäusern in ganz Deutschland folgten der Einladung. Die Besucher zeigten sich sowohl von der Leistungsfähigkeit, der Flexibilität und der Offenheit als auch von der Bedienungsfreundlichkeit, der einfachen Konfigurierbarkeit und der Sicherheit des modularen Workflows beeindruckt. Via Internet-Verbindung wurde während des Workshops zu Demozwecken mehrfach live in die Produktion eines führenden holländischen Zeitungshauses geschaltet, das mit Elara drei Druckstandorte zentral steuert und jährlich etwa fünf Millionen Druckplatten produziert. In den Dialogen zwischen den Workshop-Teilnehmern und den Zeitungsexperten von Fujifilm wurde deutlich, dass die bisher verfügbaren Zeitungsworkflows viele Anforderungen der Verlage und Druckereien kaum in zufriedenstellender Weise abdecken.
