KBA-Flexotecnica – New augmented reality technology

ITALY • Under its newly-inaugurated Koenig & Bauer nameplate and logo, KBA-Flexotecnica will be displaying and unveiling its new innovative solutions for presses and products at Print4All in Milan (Hall 18 Stand 16G)

Against this backdrop, attendees will be able to learn about the new service collaboration between KBA-Flexotecnica and KBA-Digital & Web Solutions. Many existing service packages – which are already successfully in use in the web offset market – will soon be offered by the Italian subsidiary too.

Products on display include the use of new augmented reality (AR) technology, which is being incorporated into the company’s new AR-DataGlass augmented reality data glasses. This new product improves remote maintenance and customer support by bringing the real and virtual world closer together. It features a camera to see live in real time exactly what service technicians on site are seeing so they can be instructed step by step on how to remedy the problem. An online connection using a virtual private network (VPN) offers maximum data security through special hardware encryption.

Moreover an array of new integrated solutions aimed at minimizing waste during start-up and production will be unveiled. This includes a system for automatic print impression active with the idle machine as well as a number of installation engineering improvements to reduce energy consumption.
