At the drupa, TCPL Packaging, one of the largest packaging printing companies in India, ordered three Rapida 106 presses from KBA-Sheetfed.
One of them already started its journey to the TCPL Silvassa plant in autumn 2016. The second started production in the Guwahati plant at the end of August. This is a special press with six inking units, coating tower, two intermediate drying units, each with a further inking unit and coating tower, and a three-fold delivery extension. It has a UV function, pile logistics and has been set 450 mm higher for packaging production.
Now a total of six Rapida 106 high-performance presses are in operation at TCPL – two at each of the locations Haridwar, Silvassa and Guwahati. A seventh and thus the third from the drupa package is expected to arrive shortly.
The six Rapida 106 presses at TCPL have a total of 50 printing and finishing units, including seven coating towers for conventional and UV production, a corona unit and many further details for high-quality inline finishing. They were all installed between 2012 and 2017. With this very modern and automated pool of presses, TCPL produces economically and offers top quality.
