KBA Group

Pinheiros are very proud to supply used printing and finishing machinery from the KBA group. KBA or Koenig and Bauer Group, to give them their full title, specialise in the production of print machinery for a huge variety of applications. They produce sheetfed offset printers and web offset printers as well as digital printers. Their print machinery is used for packaging printing, commercial and publications printing and even for special applications such as security printing for banknotes and ID systems.

KBA are a German company with their headquarters in Wurzburg. They were founded in 1817 and hold the record for being the oldest printing press manufacturer in the world still in service.

This longevity has been attributed to their ability to stay one step ahead of the competition using a combination of innovation and quality control.

One example of this innovation is the Rapida 106 from KBA. This press is capable of delivering 18,000 sheets per hour and features the unique sensoric infeed system and servo driven motors for the feeder drives and suction belts. This, in turn, helps to increase the running speed in order to ensure a faster turnaround time without compromising the quality of finish achieved. This advanced technology from KBA means that the Rapida 106 delivers on speed and also helps to minimise the impact on the environment, making it the most socially responsible choice.

Here at Pinheiros we know that when we supply a customer with used print machinery from KBA they will be getting a top quality product (but at a significant saving on the cost of new). All our pre-owned presses and finishing equipment are fully serviced and checked before being shipped to our customers so you can be confident that when you choose used print machinery from Pinheiros you will get a quality product which won't let you down.
