High Econ drying oven

High Econ drying oven

KBA-MetalPrint has developed a new generation of drying ovens which guarantees even greater energy savings and efficiency. Key features of the HighEcon concept are the automatically controlled exhaust air volume, a reduction of approx. 70% in gas consumption compared to an oven without air purification, modified air flows within the oven, and the use of frequency controllers for all fans. Together, these features enable the handling of extremely thin metal sheets down to a thickness of 0.100 mm.

News & Innovations

MetalDecojet - The world’s first industrial inkjet system developed specifically for use in the metal packaging industry  

The MetalDecojet is the first industrial inkjet printing press developed exclusively for use in the metal packaging industry. It combines cutting-edge inkjet technology with the acknowledged and longstanding expertise of KBA-MetalPrint in the field of metal decorating, enabling cost-effective short-run production with high print quality and excellent processing properties.

The direct digital decoration of coated metal sheets brings a number of advantages which together add up to significant cost reductions and enhanced quality in the production of metal packaging:

  • Printing without plates and ink changes
  • Consequently, lightning-fast job changeovers and dramatic reductions in waste
  • Proofing and production on the same press
  • Production start only minutes after receiving the print data
  • On-demand production becomes possible
  • As a result, very fast delivery times and/or significantly reduced storage
  • Process stability for trouble-free repeat jobs
  • Increased overall productivity in relieving the existing offset printing presses from small orders
