New high tech printing machine is being installed in PECHATNYA printing house


A number of characteristics were taken into account when buying a new machine: high automation, productivity, speed, availability of technology for measurement and control. Since the printing house is constantly investing in quality, building up the production system in such a way that there is a minimum waste due to unique systems and machines, the German equipment has been chosen again.


Rapida 106-6-LTTL (universal) is the second printing machine in "PECHATNYA", the previously acquired one was Rapida 106-8. It features unique performance and was assembled by German specialists following the specific wishes of the printing house with an emphasis on multi-step modern quality control options.

The major ones were:

- quality control of each sheet;

- automatic measurement of colour densities and colour management; the results of all measurements are displayed through the portal to the intelligent control panel;

- saving and displaying frames with errors and other useful options.

All operations are carried out under the camera-control, being able to check the correspondence to the subscribed sheet at the speed up to 18 000 sheets/hour.


At present, Rapida 106-6 is being installed in the printing house, then step-by-step adjustment of all control systems will start.  Despite the similar principle of work with the previous Rapida printing press, the specialists of the printing house have to undergo a training from the manufacturer - at the KBA plant in Radebeul near Dresden (Germany). The full production shall be started this February.
