Presentation of the Genius 52UV at the Pack Print International in Bangkok

Great versatility and perfect quality

High praise from the very top was heaped on Stefan Segger, Managing Director of KBA Asia Pacific, at the Pack Print International 2007 show staged by Messe Dusseldorf in the Thai capital of Bangkok for the first time between 26-29 April – and that was only by half-time.

Within the framework of a seminar presentation made by Segger to a large contingent of members of the co-organizers, the Thai Printing Association, on the subject of “Global trends in the printing industry”, the President of the Association, Kriengkrai Thiennukul, thanked KBA for its active involvement in the show, which had greatly enhanced the event, he said.

With the presence of the Genius 52UV in A3 format, he said that KBA had acknowledged the importance of Thailand as a growth region and made a major contribution to getting the Pack Print International established as a key event for the Asian printing and packaging industry. KBA underlined the importance it gives to the area with a welcome poster featuring Thai print subjects which was printed on a Rapida medium-format press. A multitude of customers from all over Thailand were there, along with customers from Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia, who had all come to find out about the latest trends in sheetfed and web offset printing. A large number of visitors even came from India, Australia and New Zealand as well. There was a lively flow of visitors to the KBA stand in Hall 103 on all four days of the show. This was because the compact Genius 52UV small-format press from KBA-Metronic AG was one of the main attractions at the show.

Genius 52UV – the small star of the show

Following each printing presentation of the Genius 52UV there was a run on the various versions of the print samples which had been produced. Although the Genius 52UV was developed primarily for printing on plastics, lenticular film and compound film, it also demonstrated its quality on paper and card as well. The versatility of this small-format UV press was highlighted by the poster of Hollywood star Nicole Kidman, 3-D images of cultural monuments in Paris and high-quality label printing.

The Genius 52UV also offers many advantages for small companies too. This is because it is very easy to operate, which means that users quickly master how to use the compact equipment and can make the most of the versatility it offers to quickly react to the latest market trends. Of the 80 users around the world to date, four are from the Asia Pacific region. Following installation in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, printers from Indonesia are also showing a growing interest. The trade fair machine is shortly due to start production at Asdion Data Services in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).

Although the Genius 52UV was the only printing press on the KBA stand, a lot of the discussions at the show also focused on the new version of the Rapida 105 universal medium-format press which is in use throughout the world and recently made its debut at the Print China in Dongguan.

In addition to the several models installed in Bangkok at Thai Watana Panich Press, Pongwarin Printing and Bangkok Printing, further Rapida 105 universal systems were also sold to KBA newspaper customers the Bangkok Daily News and a company in Singapore.

Important references in the field of newspaper and digital printing

Further topics of discussion were the KBA Prisma 4/1 newspaper web press, which recently started production at The Post Publishing Plc., publisher of The Bangkok Post daily newspaper and the business journal Post Today, and a 74 Karat digital offset press with coating unit at Millennium Graphics in Phuket. All these users feel they have made the right choice with KBA.
