The new Rapida 76 brings the total number of printing and finishing units from Koenig & Bauer to 101 at Parksons Packaging’s five ultramodern production plants
Parksons Packaging, an India-based packaging solutions provider, has commissioned a six-colour version Rapida 76 offset printing press from German firm Koenig & Bauer at its undisclosed facility.
The newly installed Rapida 76 brings the total number of printing and finishing units from Koenig & Bauer to 101 across Parksons Packaging’s five ultramodern production plants.
Parksons Packaging chairman Ramesh Kejriwal said: “We can already prepare the unused printing units for the next job while the press is still running the current production job. And as an extra bonus, that also reduces wear on the rollers.
“DriveTronic SPC allows job changeover times to be shortened by 30 to 40 per cent. And the number of jobs which we handle on the new presses has increased by 30 to 35 per cent.”
Parksons Packaging commissioned the first Rapida press in 2005
