Flint Group inks have been tested and optimised for quality and performance, for the fast KBA Rapida presses. Customers will gain from reduced ink consumption, high colour brilliance and contrast, smooth reproduction, convenient handling and the reliable printing of solids.


From initial planning meetings right through to installation sign-off, Flint Group technical staff will support KBA engineers during installation, ensuring the press is quickly up and running, producing high quality prints.


“The benefits to the printer are huge,” explains Richard Wilson, Flint Group’s OEM Technical Coordination Director. “Local support with consistent, reliable products will help get the press printing more efficiently, and the customer will start gaining returns from their investment faster. It will mean sign-off can be achieved quicker than might otherwise be the case.”


“Our strategy is to work alongside industry leading equipment manufacturers to help us develop consistent, high quality and innovative products and services. This Agreement is an important extension of our global quality and service proposition.”

Romain Boulot, VP Sheetfed Sales and Global Sheetfed Strategy, Flint Group


“We have achieved excellent and stable results with printing inks from Flint Group, and when a product meets our high expectations, we gladly recommend it to our users around the world.”

Dirk Winkler, Head of Print Technology, KBA-Sheetfed
