KBA's PRINT 09 Booth Will Showcase Rapida 106 and Genius 52 UV PressesMay 2009
WILLISTON, VT—05/17/2009—KBA North America, a global press manufacturer forming a new headquarters in Dallas, Texas, will be displaying a KBA Rapida 106 41-inch and Genius 52 UV 20-inch sheetfed press at its booth at PRINT 09 from September 11 to 17 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The KBA Rapida 106 will ensure that attendees stay focused on KBA’s ingenuity, award-winning press line, and unique technology, and that the highly-automated Rapida 106 will continue its mandate as the makeready champion, which it established at Drupa 2008.
“We’re anticipating a very positive show, especially since we’ll have our popular Rapida 106 and Genius 52 UV press running live,” says Holger Garbrecht, president and CEO of KBA North America. “Last year at Drupa, the new Rapida 106 took the title of world makeready champion due to its fast running speed and the highest automation in the market. The Genius 52 UV has been able to make profit leaders of many print shops due to its ability to print on many diverse substrates in all market segments. In addition, we’ll be marketing our complete line of presses–from commercial to packaging and commercial web to newspaper.”
For those who cannot attend Print 09, KBA will keep abreast of new announcements and technology through YouTube videos and Twitter.
