Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed and System Brunner have a long and successful history of partnership in providing the best technology to the print and packaging market.

With the basic equipment of QualiTronic / ErgoTronic, color control is only done in accordance with the individual solid ink densities of each ink.

However, thanks to the partnership with System Brunner, new and more enhanced color control solutions are optionally available to the user, combined with the control console 2. These Color Management solutions lead to a higher color automation in print production with optimal visual appearance and match of international Standards like GRACoL-G7, ISO-PSO or any preset definition.

In combination with the Koenig & Bauer control console 2, the Instrument Flight® / PSO-Match software has been completely redesigned and functionally expanded. It is operated from a separate touchscreen monitor, which makes the application even more user-friendly.

System Brunner is proud to partner with Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed.
