Broad commitment to the environment

In the print industry, too, modern practice includes the demand to reduce CO2 emissions. Energy-saving technologies are thus gaining ever greater importance.

KBA pays particular attention to identification and realisation of the potential for energy savings in your daily production. A sound foundation is laid by giving preference to technical solutions with relatively low energy consumption.

A second aspect is the avoiding of emissions. In this respect, Rapida presses are pioneers. It is not without reason that they were the first sheetfed offset presses in the world to be awarded the eco-certificate “Emission-tested” back in 2000. Climate-neutral production is another field in which KBA belongs to the vanguard.

Use of energy-saving technologies

The drying process is one of the most energy-intensive aspects of printing. Already for that reason, it is a subject of particular interest for KBA.

The VariDryBlue drying concept offers an economical and individually tailored solution for every application. The necessary energy input for the drying of water-based dispersion coatings can be reduced by up to 30 per cent. This is achieved by recirculating the already hot air between the dryer modules.

For UV drying, on the other hand, HR and LED dryer modules represent a high-performance, yet energy-saving alternative to conventional UV dryers for both interdeck and final drying.

The following possibilities are available for tracking and analysis of the energy consumption of your press:

The overall power input to the press, as well as the energy consumption of individual components such as the dryers, can be monitored directly on the console. The production planning and control system LogoTronic Professional records and documents energy consumption on a job-specific basis. VisuEnergy is the KBA solution for energy consumption analysis over longer periods, also for several presses. The data collected can then serve as input variables for a company-wide energy management system.

With ClimatePartner, you have a competent partner at your side when it comes to offering your customers climate-neutral printing services. Climate Partner compensates the unavoidable CO2 emissions associated with print production by financing climate protection projects.
