KBA North America in Williston, Vermont, and Dallas, Texas, announces that All Out Print Communications, a general commercial printer located in Woodridge, Illinois, has begun production on its new KBA Genius 52 UV press the first week of February 2009.

- The Genius 52 UV, the world’s first waterless and roller-less offset press, is starting production at All Out Print Communications on short-run point-of-purchase and packaging.
“We’ve added a new member to the All Out family,” says JB Capuano, founder of All Out. “The Genius 52 UV, the world’s first waterless and keyless offset press is starting production on short-run point-of-purchase and packaging.”
Paper, plastic, foil, or almost any non-porous substrate can be printed
Why did All Out decide to install a small footprint machine? “The Genius is extremely efficient,” says Capuano. “We can set it up in less than seven minutes and then it quickly produces a job at up to 8,000 sheets per hour. In addition to being the fastest press in its size category, the Genius 52 creates consistent, high-quality prints on just about any substrate. It prints on paper, plastic, foil, or almost any non-porous surface. So if our customers need to print small format lenticular-we can do it! The Genius has it covered. It also gives our customers a lot of flexibility. The Genius offers the world’s widest stock range in this format, from 80lb to 32pt. What’s more, it accommodates a variety of sheet sizes, with a maximum sheet size of 14.2-inches by 20.47-inches, a minimum sheet size of 8.27-inches by 11.69-inches, and a maximum printable area of 13.78-inches by 19.69-inches. Plus, it received the coveted 2006 Intertech Technology Award from PIA/GATF.”
All Out Print Communications was founded three years ago by JB Capuano and four partners as a print brokerage. After investing in very large format and digital presses in its first year, the large-format shop generated over $9 million in revenue. This year the firm is on track for $14 million, with plans to increase production space by 50%, from 25,000 sq.ft. to 37,000 sq.ft. in mid-2010.
