Future-compatible solutions have a long tradition at KAMA. Starting with the patented Remus bending process, which revolutionised the entire cardboard-processing industry in the late 19th century, through the world’s first automatic die cutter in the 1930s and on to today’s finishing die cutters, along with the world’s first fully automated folder-gluer for digitally printed orders.
Just like our customers, we see the changes that are taking place in our dynamic industry as a source of motivation and an opportunity to grow. This is why 10 percent of our employees work in the area of research and development. They make sure that every KAMA machine contains a glimpse of the future – to help you successfully manage the requirements in post-press, finishing and print enhancements.
Cooperation projects with TU Dresden, the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences and other players guarantee fast knowledge transfer from research into practice.
