Extensive automation for greater efficiency

Challenge

A KBA Rapida 75 had been in production at Eberle Druck since 2011. At that time, the press had to be purchased at short notice, and the company accepted a number of compromises with regard to the equipment features. It was not possible to place the press on raised foundations to allow higher piles, and a colour control option was also missing. Job changeover times, furthermore, were relatively long.

Solution

The company invested in the more extensively automated successor model Rapida 75 PRO immediately after the market launch. The six-colour press with inline coater and extended delivery is ideally equipped for the printing of pharmaceutical packaging in short runs: Sheet format enlarged to 605 x 750mm, 225mm raised foundations, central format setting, fully automatic FAPC plate changers, disengaging of unused inking units, CleanTronic Synchro for parallel washing and QualiTronic ColorControl for inline colour measurement.

Benefit

The Rapida 75 PRO has enabled makeready times to be shortened dramatically compared to the old Rapida 75 – from 15-20 minutes to just five minutes. Productivity has increased by 30 per cent. Thanks to the larger sheet format, considerably more packaging blanks can be accommodated on each sheet. In some cases, there is room for an entire new row of blanks. Waste has been reduced significantly, and print quality is extremely constant. In addition to the old Rapida 75, Eberle Druck has also been able to decommission a second press.

KBA is one of the most accomplished press manufacturers. We were especially fascinated by the outstanding model-independent operating concept of the Rapida presses.
