Multi Packaging Solutions Chooses Specially-configured KBA Rapida Press
DALLAS—August 28, 2013—KBA North America announces that Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS), a leader in the packaging industry serving the multi-media, cosmetics, healthcare, horticulture, and value added consumer markets, has installed a new specially-configured KBA Rapida press with full automation for its board packaging and plastic printing. The new press is currently in production at MPS’s facility in Indianapolis.
When MPS approached KBA about a new press, the premiere packaging firm had specific needs and a specific configuration in mind. The firm wanted to upgrade its existing press technology with new state-of-the-art features to provide increased productivity, more flexibility for multiple coating effects, maximum efficiency, excellent color stability, outstanding print quality, and extremely short makeready times. After a diligent investigation, MPS awarded the press order to KBA.
MPS’s new KBA Rapida press provides solutions on this specially-configured model with unique capabilities. The new press, dubbed the makeready world champion for its fast speed, raises the bar in productivity, production flexibility and automation. The high production speed and ultra-short makeready times will expand the company’s capabilities while helping to dramatically lower its overall costs.
