Protective Packaging, a Lugoff, S.C., custom packaging printer, headquartered outside of Columbia, is astonishing its customers with its new generation mid-format Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 six-colour press, the first in the U.S.

The new 41-in. flagship press was delivered in summer 2022 to the firm’s 130,000-sf facility where it operates alongside a Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 installed in 2019.

“Our customers depend on us to deliver the highest quality folding cartons with ultra-short delivery times,” says Tom Price, president of Protective Packaging. “We’re able to answer those demands with the new Rapida’s higher speeds and much faster makeready. Due to all of the high-end features on the press, we’re at least 30 per cent more efficient and can turn our jobs much faster. The array of custom features supports faster net sheets on our production floor through continuous running of the press.”
