Kyana

Kyana, the industry’s first artificial intelligence, offers everything from remote support and detailed performance monitoring to future predictive maintenance for digital production support.

Main features

Managed Services

Managed Services accompanies you as a 24/7 assistant who keeps a permanent and seamless eye on the alphaJET systems with all its functions and informs you live and in real time via the dashboard. The dashboard helps to increase the performance and safety of your production.

Performance and device availability

The evaluation of the performance shows the real availability of the printer. The higher, the better. Individually select a period of time for which you want to take a closer look at the performance and compare specific time periods or different production lines with each other. With the analysis you can optimise the performance and thus your entire production in a verifiable and traceable way.

Remote support

Fast and qualified support via remote access. A technician from our hotline connects live to the alphaJET via remote access after your approval. This enables us to check functions and set parameters, the pre-qualification for troubleshooting and the initiation of immediate measures. This ensures rapid support from our experts and avoids time-consuming and expensive service calls.

Status of consumables & link to webshop

The used consumables including the article number are displayed on your dashboard. This enables you to quickly and directly reorder ink and solvent via the dashboard with a direct link to our webshop. After the one-time registration, the shop icon leads you directly to the webshop with your personal customer data.

Frequently asked questions about Kyana

Currently, Kyana can only be used in conjunction with alphaJET marking technology in everyday production. However, there are also opportunities in other Koenig & Bauer application segments to record, analyse and interpret machine data with artificial intelligence. This offering will be further expanded in the future and integrated into a central and AI-supported platform for all Koenig & Bauer customers.

The printing colour Cyan is derived from the Greek word κύανος (kyanos – dark blue). With the creation of the artificial name Kyana, we are thus bridging the gap between the printing industry and the Koenig & Bauer brand colour dark blue.

Kyana is a network service that runs in an EU-hosted cloud. The real-time data sets are encrypted and transferred from the device to the cloud, where they are stored in the database. Only device data from the alphaJET is sent and no company or production data.

Digital Packaging Workflow

with PrintFusion

With PrintFusion, the interface between Koenig & Bauer Rapida presses and the prepress software from HYBRID Software, your workflow becomes even more efficient. PrintFusion enables a bidirectional exchange of information that ensures seamless integration and automation of production processes. Thanks to the jointly developed PrintFusion interface, data such as setting parameters and positions of measuring elements are automatically exchanged between prepress and the printing presses. The automated data exchange leads to significant increases in efficiency and error prevention, as manual intervention and repetitive tasks are eliminated.

Long-term technology partnership for innovative 360-degree packaging workflow

For the development of PrintFusion, HYBRID Software and Koenig & Bauer have combined their expertise to create a highly automated and efficient production environment that meets the requirements of the modern printing industry. This collaboration will continue on an ongoing basis in order to constantly optimise the interface and integrate new functions. One example of this is the automatic feedback to compensate for process-related substrate stretching, which is already being introduced as part of a pilot customer programme.

A look into the future at drupa 2024

PrintFusion will be presented to the public for the first time at this year’s leading trade fair for printing technologies. Visitors will have the opportunity to gain an exclusive insight into the first results of the close partnership between HYBRID Software and Koenig & Bauer. Through automation and the intelligent exchange of data between prepress and press, PrintFusion will set new standards in print production and pave the way for a sustainable and high-performance future in the printing industry.

Printing goes Metaverse

with NFT-Technology and “Gemme”

Under the project title “Printing Goes Metaverse”, Koenig & Bauer is building a bridge from classic printing to the metaverse in collaboration with NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan) and epda (european brand & packaging design association). With the support of Italian design students, a project was realised that uses NFT technology to authenticate luxury goods such as limited edition handbags, jewellery or valuable trading cards. The luxury jewellery brand “Gemme” was created as an exemplary visualisation.

Classic print meets metaverse

Digital proof of ownership is used instead of conventional paper certificates of authenticity. The forgery-proof blockchain technology is impressively demonstrated using special printing technologies and a digital app. This innovative combination of digital proof of authenticity and the traditional art of printing shows how the printing industry is connecting with the new digital reality of the Metaverse.

What advantages does NFT technology offer

An NFT is a blockchain-based token that represents digital or physical assets such as artworks, digital content or media. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, each NFT is unique and non-exchangeable. It serves as a digital certificate of ownership and authenticity and enables owners to trade and sell their assets.

Brands from the luxury goods segment in particular are using NFT technology to enable customers to connect the digital and physical worlds. The main focus here is on the experience of being able to use the purchased product in the digital world. In addition, forgery-proof authentication can be guaranteed by NFT’s unique verifications with a complete history and absolute security.

How does the printing work?

Using a special printing process, functional structures that react to the touch of smartphone sensors can be applied to almost any printed product, creating a link between the physical product and the digital application. In combination with QR codes, this creates a forgery-proof proof of ownership. Customers receive both an origin-verified, printed NFT-Twin and the physical original.
