New Rapida-105 Premieres at China Print


Staff member
At China Print—Beijing, June 23 through 27, 2021—the industry’s first in-person trade fair in more than a year, Koenig & Bauer’a stand measured almost 1,000 square meters and showcased a new generation of Rapida-105—“We print your world”—sheetfed offset presses.

Demonstrations of the new 6-color coater press—with extended delivery (max. sheet format 720/740 × 1,050 mm)—were held in a series of live, daily shows. The new press is used for producing a broad spectrum of products: high-quality folding cartons, door hangers and posters.

The new 105—designed on the basis of the Rapida-106 & Rapida-106 X series—is distinguished by upgrades to its automation components, increased printing speeds and a host of Rapida-typical design solutions, including:
  • Comprehensive presets;
  • Universal gripper systems for all substrates;
  • Environmentally friendly cloth-based CleanTronic washing systems;
  • VariDry drying systems;
  • Control systems for measuring & quality assurance;
  • Optimized Sheet Guidance System;
  • Wide range of substrate flexibility—0.06 – 0.7 mm as standard, or up to 1.2 mm with the optional Corrugated Substrates Package;
  • A nearly infinite range of configuration options:
  • Up to 8-printing units, as well as perfecting units for 4-over-4 production,
  • Inline coating,
  • Cold foil units,
  • Web-to-sheet feeders,
  • Multiple logistics options.
China is a key sheetfed offset market for Koenig & Bauer—the Rapida series are extremely popular—and demand for them has remained stable for several months.
