Imagine! continues growth

Imagine! Print Solutions, an independent commercial and package printer, has installed its tenth KBA press — a Rapida 164 64-inch seven-color full UV press at its Shakopee, Minnesota, facility. The press became fully operational in early 2017.  

“Imagine! is an industry leader and has an impressive track record of double-digit growth since its founding in 1988,” says John Hans, CEO. “We continue to add new technology, such as our new KBA Rapida 164 press, to enable us to address our clients’ needs and future demands as well as the current production of branded materials and retail offerings across the country. This new press supports our growth and initiatives providing us with faster and more efficient production. It will produce the short-run workload of three of our older large format presses with lightning-fast makereadies with absolute minimum waste, less labor, and less energy. As our market continues to change and evolve, this new KBA press brings us innovation and new value to the firm.”

The new Rapida is specified to run board, has UV capabilities, and a host of quality control features. Its new QualiTronic ColorControl inline color control system reads and monitors every sheet that goes through the press.

The new press joins nine KBA Rapida presses operated by Imagine!: a KBA Rapida 105 41-inch press, a giant Rapida 205 81-inch, two Rapida 162 64-inch presses, and four Rapida 41-inch presses, as well as a new Rapida 105 41-inch press at Imagine! Express Minneapolis. All presses are fully equipped with KBA’s advanced technology from quality control to fully automated processes including a host of drying solutions.
