KBA 145 with Double-Pile Delivery
March 22, 2016 By PrintAction Staff
KBA is introducing a new double-pile delivery system for its Rapida 145 sheetfed press, which will be shown at drupa in a six-colour configuration with coater and automated pile logistics. The double-pile delivery option is now also available in medium format for the Rapida 106 press.
The new double-pile delivery for the Rapida 145 is designed to optimize production at packaging companies with high throughput. A waste-free delivery pile which stands next to a smaller pile of waste, explains KBA, can be sent straight to a die-cutter or laminating machine to be converted. Productivity is increased as manually sorting through a pile for waste is now no longer necessary.
KBA explains both piles can be embedded in substrate logistics. Waste can be ejected at full speed, i.e. at 18,000 sheets per hour (Rapida 145) and 20,000 sph (Rapida 106). This allows for start-up and run-up waste to be removed automatically. Further applications are planned in the future, explains KBA, which adds that double-pile delivery makes nonstop pile change at maximum speed safer. Production with two piles is possible in both manual and automatic mode.
