This means that there are no cracks to fall through, no pillars or posts to be bounced between, no bucks to be passed – because we are here to see that you get the very best from your KBA press investment throughout its working life.

And our service isn’t exclusive to KBA users; our customer-focused solutions are all about helping you to achieve optimum performance levels from all your presses – we analyse your needs and research all the options before we make our recommendations. Our service is not just about the cost of the consumables as they go onto your shelves, but their cost-effectiveness once they’ve gone through your presses.

Tested consumables for even better performance in print
With a whole range of products under the name PressConsum, KBA can be your preferred supplier for high-quality ink series, dampening additives and many other consumables for the sheetfed offset process. All these products have been carefully selected to satisfy the demands of high-performance sheetfed offset and have been optimised specifically for use on RAPIDA presses.

Full KBA BPIF ISO 12647-2 UKAS Certification
The BPIF has developed a UK Certification Scheme for ISO12647-2 because, as with Quality and Environmental Standards, buyers expect auditing and certification from UKAS accredited certification bodies. In response to such customer demands, a growing number of UK printing companies are now working towards this standard.

By choosing to meet the exacting standards of the BPIF Scheme and the requirements of UKAS, companies are able to implement best practice throughout their whole production process and these officially accredited companies will enjoy clear production benefits that impact on efficiency, as well as quality, as a result.

KBA (UK) Ltd. has worked with the BPIF throughout this process and offers its customers expert technical support to help them achieve accreditation. As well as ensuring you have the latest software and hardware upgrades, and  instructing you in the full use of the colour controls on your KBA presses, we offer the benefit of our expertise and knowledge within all areas.

Our team of Print Performance specialists has years of experience in colour management, and understands how to get the best results from your Pre-Press and KBA equipment.
