After inventing the first steam-driven cylinder printing press in London in 1814, Friedrich Koenig returned to Würzburg with Andreas Bauer in 1817 to found today's Koenig & Bauer AG. The company significantly influenced the production of printing presses with its experience and has lived up to its claim of being a leader of innovation in its markets right up to the present day. Apart from newspaper printing, these markets also include sheet-fed printing, packaging printing and metal-decorating printing. In addition, over 90 percent of the world currency is printed on machines from Würzburg. Since February 2015, Koenig & Bauer has been using a turnkey solution from DMG MORI in order to ensure the standard of quality in production for the machining of large volume parts. This configuration consists, among other things, of two prototypes from the machine tool manufacturer: a highly productive DMC 270 U including an RS 4 pallet pool and an ultra-high precision DIXI 270.
