The new cooperation agreement further intensifies the existing partnership between the two companies ACTEGA products, which have been tested on Rapida sheet-fed offset presses, will carry the seal of quality “Approved and licensed varnish by KBA.” Companies says the prime objective of the cooperation is to ensure the availability of high quality coating systems for KBA's high-performance sheet-fed offset presses, adding that the use of correspondingly approved products under uniform conditions will serve to establish application standards. This, in turn, will safeguard both outstanding finishing quality and high performance in the in-line coating process.

All users who obtain their coating products through the ACTEGA sales network will benefit from the predefined product standards, as new products will already be tested and optimized for use on Rapida sheet-fed offset presses. On the bottom line, the cooperation can thus be seen as a further means to maximize the business success of users whose work involves the application of varnish coatings in an in-line process, companies reports.

KBA and ACTEGA will be cooperating at global level. The plans to date include joint product and sales training, print demonstrations at KBA, at fairs ,and at customer events, the development of appropriate starter kits to be supplied with new presses, and continuous further development of the products concerned. To this end, regular tests will be conducted on the Rapida presses installed at the KBA customer center. The cooperation covers water-based, UV, HR-UV, and LED-UV coatings.
