The latest 60-page issue of Koenig & Bauer Report spotlights current news, innovations and trends from the print industry.

In his editorial, president and CEO Claus Bolza-Schünemann outlines the course of continuous growth pursued by Koenig & Bauer. The acquisition of a majority stake in Duran Machinery has enabled the world’s oldest press manufacturer to further expand its product portfolio for the prospering folding carton market. At the same time, Koenig & Bauer and Durst Phototechnik have signed a letter of intent on the founding of a joint venture to drive the development of digital print solutions for folding carton and corrugated board printing.

One year before the next drupa opens its doors, the magazine also sheds light on the strategies adopted by the Group in this age of advancing digital transformation. With a range of service offers based on the evaluation of press and production data, Koenig & Bauer has been one of the pioneers of digital transformation in print for more than 20 years. In 2018, the presentation of further developments using artificial intelligence added yet another aspect to the digitally networked production environment envisaged by Koenig & Bauer.
