has been supplying sheetfed offset technology to the Hanau facility of international packaging group DS Smith for several decades. Other DS Smith locations also work with Rapida sheetfed offset presses, predominantly in large format. The new production center for display and consumer packaging in Erlensee will be relying on highly automated large-format Rapidas from KBA-Sheetfed.
A new KBA Rapida 145 has already been taken into service, and further large-format Rapidas were relocated to Erlensee from the old print center in Hanau.
The new six-color Rapida 145 with inline coating unit is a high-speed model engineered for production speeds up to 17,000 sheets per hour. Comprehensive automation lays the foundation for efficient packaging production.
