Koenig & Bauer sells Rapida 106 X from drupa stand to I.G.B.

I.G.B. – Innovative Graphic Boxes in Viggiù, Italy placed an order on the Koenig & Bauer stand at drupa for a Rapida 106 X seven-colour coater press with extended delivery.

The new press also features a number of innovations that significantly enhance its performance compared to previous models. These include the fully automatic CPC+ coating plate changing system, which can be controlled from the console and, like the plate changing system, is fully automatic. At its final destination, the Rapida 106 X will be raised and integrated into a pile logistics system.

Some of Koenig & Bauer’s new measuring technology features will also be included into the I.G.B. system. These include ErgoTronic FormCheck, a tool for projecting coating and cutting forms onto the printed sheets from the console. This makes it easy to check the printed image. The press is also equipped with the QualiTronic PDFHighRes inline sheet inspection, which combines the functions of colour control, sheet inspection and comparison with the pre-press PDF in one system.

I.G.B. is one of Koenig & Bauer’s long-standing users. Since the early 2000s it has had three Rapida presses with a total of 18 printing and finishing units. One of these will be replaced by the new investment. The company specialises in pharmaceutical packaging and offers a range of innovative solutions, such as safety closures for the pharmaceutical sector. I.G.B.’s customers include both European and American companies.
