    Arrow KBA 81" presses - where?

    I have had the opportunity to be a client on the super-wide KBA 205 (81") presses - two in NJ and TN. Since my need is national, can anyone point me to additional instalations in the USA?

    There is one in Texas as well. What type of work are you trying to print?

    Default KBA 81" presses - where?

    thank you for the reply
    I thought there was one in TX - and I thought the name was Infininty - but cant find them? who has one? - and any others?

    "Subway 2-sheets" are 46 x 60, print in one piece on special pressure sensitive - so the UV option makes it a dream

    I sometimes get calls for 48" to 55" retail store baners too - do you know of KBA or other modern presses in the 60-64" range?

    You have a PM.

    What is your special pressure sensitive? UV is not always required...PS can be paper stocks also. Quantity of the print run is a big determining factor in what print method is used to produce large format prints. Digital and screen are both options also.

    Jon - thanks for the coaching - but please note that I'm "doing this since 1960" so I understand the processes, the features and benefits, and where the economic crossovers are.
    Thus, sometimes I silk screen these, sometimes I print digitally, and sometimes Litho is called for.

    FYI NY Subway 2 sheet have a tight set of specs -
    the current approved list Removable Self-Adhesive Vinyls is
    • 3M IJ35 w/ 3M 8519 Overlaminate
    • Flexcon Railmark 5370RS, 5385RS, 5372RS & 5387RS
    • General Formulations Submark

    Back to the questions at hand -
    who has that 84 in TX,
    do you know of any more other than the 3 machines in NJ and the one in TN
    and, while we're at it, other larger-than-40" modern presses in America?
    thanks Jon!

    I sent you a link via Private Message to a company in Texas that has an 81" KBA and multiple large format digital and screen presses, all UV. Large format conventional offset is there also.

    I am familiar with a couple of the stocks you listed.
