Rex to install new KBA Rapida press at Jacksonville facility

Rex, a division of Cenveo Labels and Packaging, will install a new KBA Rapida 106 41-inch eight-color press at its facility in Jacksonville, Florida, US for the folding carton market.

Cenveo Labels and Packaging division president Michael Burton said the company focuses on growth in the labels & packaging market.

"This press investment expands our high-end packaging capabilities and will increase our product offerings for existing clients as well as increase penetration into new vertical markets," Burton said.

Features of the KBA Rapida 106 press include two coating units at the rear of the press, UV drying and VariDry Blue infrared/hot air drying system.

The press also consists of a wall screen at the press console, complete automation including KBA’s ErgoTronic and QualiTronic systems, a KBA board package, raised platform, as well as cold foil system.

The QualiTronic color-control and inspection system of the press is a camera-based inline sheet-inspection system that scans each sheet and compares it with a reference sheet for copy and color validation.

According to KBA North America, the feature is applicable for the company’s pharmaceutical and medical device customers.

Cenveo’s Rex packaging plant specializes in folding carton work and is suited to serve a range of medium to larger sized customers.
