Polish packaging printing services provider Intropak Plochocki & Wspólnicy has installed a new six-colour Rapida 105 hybrid press with coater, made by Koenig & Bauer (KBA).

The new press will enable the company to carry out mixed packaging printing operations using conventional and UV inks, finishing with water-based and UV coating.

Equipped with additional board and film packages that handle maximum stock thicknesses of 1.2mm, the Rapida hybrid press is mounted on a 450mm plinth for printing packaging.

The new press has an automatic plate changer, CleanTronic Multi and CleanTronic UV washing systems and nonstop rollers. It also features VariDry IR/TA/UV dyers and a UV interdeck dyer that can be positioned freely between the printing units.

Intropak proprietor Dariusz Plochocki said that the company has been using KBA's press technology and services for more than 12 years.

"Along with a larger sheet format, this press offers us a nearly endless array of possibilities in terms of inline finishing, which we aim to exploit fully," Plochocki added.

KBA CEE managing director Jan Korenc said: "We hope that the new Rapida 105 will contribute to the dynamic development of Intropak, just like the firm's previous KBA presses have done."
