Press release from the issuing company

Three high-end sheetfed offset presses for new production site

Schur Pack Germany based in Büchen, Schleswig-Holstein, recently placed an order for three KBA Rapidas in medium and large format with a total of 29 printing and finishing units for its new production facility in nearby Gallin. The association between KBA and the renowned packaging group has thus been extended for the third time.

Schur International a/s is an international team of 15 companies offering packaging, packaging machines, packaging systems and know-how. It has approx. 800 staff employed in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, France and the USA. Founded in 1846 by Johan Wilhelm Schur, the company began as a printshop for labels and other printed products in Horsens, Denmark. Today it is one the oldest family-run packaging firms and managed by Hans Schur, the fifth generation of the founding family. Schur Pack Germany in Büchen produces food and non-food packaging for prominent brands in various industries.

Three large-format Rapida presses and one medium-format Rapida have been in operation in Büchen since 2005/2006. The large-format Rapida 142 presses are equipped with a total of six inking units and an additional coater. The eight-colour medium-format Rapida 105 features twin coaters, making a total of 12 printing, coating and drying units. Furthermore, the presses are raised for packaging printing and are embedded in automatic pile logistics.

Two Rapida presses have also been a feature of the pressroom at Schur Pack Denmark in Horsens since 2012 replacing four older presses from another manufacturer. A Rapida 145 was delivered to Horsens directly after Drupa. Back then it was the first giant-format press to feature DriveTronic SPC dedicated plate-cylinder drives and an extensive raft of inline measuring and control technology. It was soon joined by a Rapida 106 with seven printing units, twin coaters and the same high level of automation.

The recent order comprises again of two six-colour large-format presses with extensive automation and control technology. One of the two Rapida 145 presses features an extra coater and the other press will be configured as a two-coater press. These two plus the eight-colour Rapida 106 with twin coaters and ColdFoil Infigo SF110 will again be embedded in comprehensive substrate logistics. After the installation is complete production will start at the highly efficient packaging plant in autumn 2015 in Gallin.
