KBA Rapidas

Schur International subsidiary Schur Pack Germany will equip its new production facility in Gallin with three KBA Rapidas presses with a total of 29 printing and finishing units.

The company has ordered for two six-colour large-format Rapida 142 presses with automation and control technology, as well as eight-colour Rapida 106 with twin coaters and ColdFoil Infigo SF110.

Of the two Rapida 145 presses, one will feature an extra coater and the other press will be configured as a two-coater press.

The plant will become operational later this year, upon completion of the installation.

The company has already been operating three large-format Rapida 142 presses and one eight-colour, medium-format Rapida 105 in Büchen since 2005.

"The KBA Rapida 145 will begin production in May this year."

Schur International comprises 15 companies offering packaging, and packaging machines and systems.
