RotaJET L-Series

Wide range of substrates

Every printing process demands suitable substrates. The proven offset printing process has a raft of various materials at its disposal. Nevertheless, the RotaJET L-Series already has an entire range of substrates available for new and future inkjet printing technologies, and this range is increasing permanently. KBA is more than happy to advise you on the right substrate, from lightweight stock to carton.

Modularity

Founded on KBA’s long-term development strategy and the press’ consistent modular design the KBA RotaJET has been designed to be retrofitted with future print head generations onsite.

This means that the KBA RotaJET L-series platform is the most flexible and future-proof high-volume inkjet system for users currently on the market.

Upgradeability

The high-performance RotaJET can be optimally configured to suit the respective market and industry environment. The new KBA digital press series includes five RotaJET printing systems which can handle web widths ranging from 895 to 1300mm (35.2in - 51.1in). As all these new systems have been developed based on an identical platform it is possible to upgrade a KBA RotaJET 89 (web width 895mm/35.2in) easily and quickly to a RotaJET 100, RotaJET 112, RotaJET 123 or even a premium RotaJET 130 (web width 1,300mm/51.1in).

Furthermore, it is also possible to modify a 1C monochrome system into a 4C color system.
