Koenig & Bauer unveiled its new generation of the Rapida 76 from Koenig & Bauer. Now available in the market, the B2 press (standard sheet format 530 x 750 mm; special format 605 x 750 mm) boasts a new level of automation, a minimal footprint and peak printing speeds of up to 18,000 sheets per hour.
Equipped with new and proven automation functions, the Rapida 76 also stands out visually in the award-winning Koenig & Bauer design.
Key features are the DriveTronic dedicated drive components, which eliminate complicated gear systems and provide for both simple handling and parallel processes during job changeovers and make-ready. The full preset capabilities of all press components are a further valuable benefit. In addition to the ErgoTronic console with wallscreen, the Rapida 76 possesses further decentralised touchscreens for maximum ease of operation.
To cater for as many different applications as possible, up to 11 printing and finishing units can be combined to configure a Rapida 76 which is tailored precisely to individual production needs.
The half-format press is flexible when it comes to compatibility with different ink and coating systems, being able to handle both conventional and UV systems with equal ease. Beside IR/hot-air drying systems, various UV, HR-UV and LED-UV systems are also available.
