The new KBA Rapida 105 five-over-five perfector press at Cartamundi provides the company with high quality printing on two sides for ultimate productivity, extreme efficiency with inline color controls and total automation, and optimal inline finishing. It also offers all processes in fewer steps, higher production due to its one-pass configuration, more consistency, and measureable quality using KBA’s premier automated technology tools.

For more than 200 years, Cartamundi has been the world-wide leader in quality card products for casinos and the general public. Its manufacturing facilities, international branches, local agents and distributors are represented in more than 50 countries.
