Koenig & Bauer announced the sale of its first sheetfed offset press to Mauritius. IPC Imprimerie & Papeterie in Cassis, a suburb of the capital Port Louis in Mauritius, will be installing a four-colour model of the Rapida 72 Pro.
The press is expected to begin shipping to Mauritius at the end of March, and the scheduled production start will be mid-2019.
IPC serves the commercial and packaging printing market, and has graphic design studio, printshop and finishing department. The company additionally runs a shop in Port Louis selling stationery and a diversity of trendy, mainly printed souvenirs.
According the Koenig & Bauer, IPC opted for the Rapida 75 Pro for its compact, space-saving design, low energy consumption and the availability of a local service partner.

ErgoTronic ACR takes care of register measurements, while ErgoTronic ColorDrive measures and controls the ink densities.
