Growth in Large-Format Work Led Allpak/Trojan to Add a KBA Rapida 142August 1, 2011
Reduced waste equals environmental benefits
Allpak/Trojan’s commitment to the environment was maintained with the new press installation. The firm has significantly reduced waste, according to Millage, especially make-ready waste with the new Rapida press. The wash-up chemistry and ink waste was brought down considerably with the addition of the automatic ink dispensing as well, he recalls.
“As a high production facility it was important for us to be comfortable in the knowledge that we could install a new press and get up to full production as quickly as possible,” added Millage. “Ever since our first KBA press was installed, we have been extremely impressed with how quickly and efficiently the KBA installation team works.”
