Further Rapida 145 for Druckhaus Mainfranken

Monday, May 14, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Druckhaus Mainfranken, one of the biggest litho and internet print operations in Germany, signed up for a further Rapida 145 at Drupa. The company has four production plants: in Greussenheim and Marktheidenfeld (Bavaria), Klipphausen and Kesselsdorf (Saxony). It also owns a printshop, Thieme, in Meissen.

Production at Druckhaus Mainfranken is based on standardised processes and extensive automation. Most of the products printed are distributed by Flyeralarm, a fast-growing, highly successful online print portal. At present there are four large-format KBA Rapida 142 four-colour presses in operation at the Greussenheim plant. These will gradually be replaced by Rapida 145 press lines. A beta version of the Rapida 145 with DriveTronic SPC simultaneous plate changing launched into action at the beginning of last year. As soon as the test phase was completed the company ordered a second Rapida 145, which will be installed in July. The next contract followed at Drupa. This was for a further Rapida 145 for Greussenheim and a Genius 52UV for Thieme. It will be the first KBA press in the Meissen printshop.

All Rapida 145 presses for Druckhaus Mainfranken have the same features. Alongside DriveTronic SPC dedicated drives they include inking-unit temperature control, nonstop facilities at the deliveries, new ErgoTronic Professional consoles with wall screens and QualiTronic inline colour control.

Druckhaus Mainfranken's Klipphausen plant has a press room full of big Rapidas. Its eight Rapida 142 presses are extensively automated and embedded in a standardised workflow.
