KBA has reached the final stages of development for its record-setting 43 metres long KBA Rapida 145 1.48m press
claims it as the the longest large format press in the market. The press is slated for installation at Italian packaging giant IPI, delivered directly from the shop floor in KBA’s German factory.
According to KBA, the 43m press has 14 printing and finishing units with the capacity to produce 15,000 sheets per hour. The machine sits on a raised foundation, equipped with UV and conventional drying.
Other features include simultaneous plate changing, pile handling logistics, EasyClean, simultaneous roller washer and UV, PSO Match and Quality Pass.
KBA has aimed the Rapida 145 series at the packaging printing market, specifically food. For example the press is configured with a printing unit and coater specifically for fast-food packaging printing.
