You might remember towards to end of 2017 we announced that we had acquired the Koenig and Bauer’s Rapida 106 as part of an ongoing programme of investment into our print and marketing communications service? Well, exciting news. This state of the art printing press has been installed and is now part of our ongoing print operations.
Why have we added the Rapida 106 printer?
The addition of the new printing press is to help us meet the record levels of demand that we are seeing this year. The Rapida 106 is the latest step in a £4 million programme of investment to improve capacity, manage the higher workload and ensure great print quality. Our commercial print services include point of sale printing, wide format printing, large format vinyl printing and commercial lithographic printing.
After 80 years in the print business and despite the rise of digital media, we have never been busier. In order to meet demand, investment in new equipment was needed to enable us to print higher volumes faster whilst enhancing quality.
How will the Rapida 106 help?
With production speeds of up to 18,000 sheets per hour, the Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 is known as one of the fastest press in medium format class. The printer also offers a range of automation features such as a sidelay-free infeed and simultaneous plate changing. It’s fair to say that we’re thrilled to have added the machine to our print operations.
The Rapida will complement the installation of an Indigo 7900 printer and an investment of over £1 million in print finishing technology in 2017.
Printing may be one of the oldest industries around, but advances in technology have brought about significant changes over the last decade. It’s vital to ensure that the equipment we use is the best available to enable us to offer a cost-effective, high quality service for our clients.
