Bulgarians buy dual-coater KBA press

Unipack Fort, one of the biggest packaging printers in Bulgaria, has ordered a high-tech KBA Rapida 106 6-colour B1 (41inch) press with two coaters, KBA DriveTronic SPC dedicated plate cylinder drives and various automation modules. The press is scheduled for delivery to the company’s Pavlikeni site April, when it will become arguably the longest, most extensively equipped sheetfed offset press line in Bulgaria

Unipack uses both sheetfed offset and flexo machines to print folding cartons for the food processing, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and tobacco industries. The new Rapida 106 will be used primarily to print packaging for the cosmetics industry.

In addition to conventional inks the new high-performance press will be capable of applying UV inks. Its two coaters will enable it to apply a range of different coatings – both conventional and UV – in either single or multiple applications. It will have five ports for interchangeable interdeck UV dryers that can be positioned and relocated according to the type of job being printed.
