Custom packaging specialist Ultimate Paper Box has installed a new seven-color, 57″ KBA Rapida 145 press in a bid to expand its pressroom capacities.
The latest equipment with an array of automated KBA technology including full UV is the third large-format press purchased by the company from KBA.
The new Rapida 145 seven-color press with coater and full UV is equipped with automation and operating technology that is claimed to provide the firm with enhanced throughput while eliminating scope for time-consuming factors.
Ultimate Paper Box owner Janak Patel was quoted by the website as saying: "Our decision to add another large-format KBA press -- a 57 Rapida 145 press---helps us to deliver sophisticated packaging jobs for the high-end packaging market and to separate us from our competitors while bringing additional value-added services to our existing customer base.
"A noteworthy improvement on our new KBA press is the added feature of UV ink and coating technology that will allow us to run a job through the press in only one pass, resulting in improved quality and lead times."
UPBX currently uses a KBA Rapida 162a 64-inch six-color press with coater, which is claimed to have enhanced its production capacity by 40%, as reported by whattheythink.com.
The new Rapida 145 57-inch press has replaced KBA Rapida 142 56-inch press with UV.
"With the addition of this new seven color large-format KBA, we will be able to continue to grow at a rapid pace and offer our customers the highest level of productivity and quality that they expect.
"The new KBA is a much needed addition because we have been experiencing record breaking growth year-over-year for the past several years. Most importantly, there is an added value for our existing customers because it also promotes long term growth opportunities for their businesses as well," added Patel.
