The Rapida LiveApp supports users with functionality for the location-independent monitoring and control of sheetfed offset presses of the Rapida series. After login via NFC, an info panel is opened with details on the progress and current status of print production. The menu also provides access to a consumables tracker, in which the use of individual consumables can be recorded and monitored by way of QR codes, as well as a maintenance manager with operator manuals, instructions and press documentation.
The German Design Award jury praised the Rapida LiveApp as a practical solution for the control and maintenance of sheetfed offset presses. In their explanatory statement, they wrote: “With this app for smartphones and tablets, the control console is extended over the whole length of the press. It offers a clever solution to an age-old problem.”
