Zöllner-Wiethoff GmbH is investing in a CI flexo printing press from Koenig & Bauer. The ultramodern Evo XG 8 + 1 is scheduled to enter production in early 2021 and will be used to print wrapping paper of all kinds. “We attach particular importance to the ecological and quality aspects of our products. The Evo XG is here precisely the kind of machine we were looking for. We are convinced that we have made the right decision and that we will now be able to further strengthen our position European market leaders,” says Jürgen Popp, owner and managing director of Zöllner-Wiethoff. The company’s use of a wide range of different papers, some with a high proportion of recycled fibres, along with a seemingly endless diversity of designs printed exclusively with water-based inks all had to be taken into consideration in the technical configuration for a new press.

We accepted the challenge posed by the customer’s special requirements and, over the course of the project, have demonstrated that we are the ideal partner for Zöllner-Wiethoff. Presses from Koenig & Bauer stand for sustainability, quality and performance on the basis of an optimally suitable technical equipment.”

The Evo XG is a highly automated flexo printing press embodying top-class technologies for production speeds up to 600 m/min. Consistent automation paired with a robust and ergonomic design is the key to exceptional performance in terms of both quality and productivity.
