Koenig & Bauer Launches Industry-Specific Energy Management Solution


Staff member
Koenig & Bauer has launched an energy management system solution. Called VisuEnergy X, it is the first energy management product to be developed and brought to market by this new, digital unit of Koenig & Bauer.

Global climate change, resource scarcity and high energy prices are sending a clear message: sustainable action is not only a question of social responsibility, but also a highly relevant economic factor. Accordingly, Koenig & Bauer is placing VisuEnergy X—a scalable, optimized, digital energy management tool—developed specifically for the print & packaging industry, to help save energy & reduce future costs.

VisuEnergy X software records & visualizes the energy requirements of individual consumers as well as print & packaging production. The energy management system records the consumption of all equipment connected to a machine, and can then calculate job-specific parameters such as the energy consumption per 1,000 sheets.

Features include:
  • Digital collection & visualization of data from all company energy consumers;
  • Utilization of all product elements to enable sustainable savings, reducing business & production costs;
  • Immediate availability—as a SaaS subscription—in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with global roll-out in 2023;
  • Enabler of corporate responsibility for sustainable production processes;
  • Aligns energy management with the focus of a group strategy that exceeds Print.
VisuEnergy X is certified in accordance with DIN ISO 50001 and is eligible for energy efficiency grants from the Federal Office for Economic Affairs & Export Control (BAFA) in Germany.
