Polish Rapida users visit KBA

Friday, December 18, 2015

Press release from the issuing company


In the first week of December the Polish members of the VSOP club (Very Smart Offset Printers) gathered for their annual meeting at KBA-Sheetfed Solutions. Along with specialist presentations on current topics and a series of live press demonstrations, the Rapida users were also treated to a cultural pre-Christmas programme in Dresden.

When welcoming the guests Jan Korenc, managing director of KBA CEE, expressed his pleasure at the growing number of Rapida presses in the Polish market. Dirk Winkler, head of print technology, gave an initial overview of the Drupa-year 2016 ahead. With ServiceSelect service manager Benjamin Seipt presented a tailor-made programme aimed at securing the performance, availability and print quality of the high-performance Rapida in all product life phases. Maintenance monitoring online, performance checks and benchmark comparisons are just some of the raft of new services available as part of digital transformation promoted by KBA-Sheetfed.

The press demonstrations covered all format classes. A print demo on a Rapida 145 focused on quality control. From QualiTronic ColorControl inline colour control to PSO-Match, Lab, DotView and QualiTronic PDF, an inline PDF reader, process technician Simona Jurk and head of the KBA customer centre Wolfgang Ley presented the sophisticated measuring and control technology of Rapida presses using various print jobs. On a Rapida 75 Dr. Petra Schottke from KBA’s project management department demonstrated finishing with UV coating and LED-UV curing on various substrates. Anne-Kathrin Gerlach talked the visitors through cold-foil finishing with web splitting and MultiFoilUse as well as Micro Embossing with UV embossing coating on a Rapida 105 PRO with twin coaters and ColdFoiler.

What is more, the 60 visiting print experts from Poland had the opportunity to network and chat during an evening at the Dresden Christmas market and a ride on the steam-powered, light railway from Radebeul to Radeburg.
