Flat-bed Die-Cutters - I-PRESS 106 / I-PRESS 106 K / OPTIMA 106 / OPTIMA-K 106 / I-PRESS 144 / I-PRESS 144 K

Paper, cardboard, plastic foil and corrugated board – with KBA-Iberica flatbed die-cutters you can handle a wide range of substrates. Versatile technical solutions and options allow you to configure a tailor-made machine that meets all requirements of your packaging production.

The I-PRESS Series is the new generation of High Technology presses made by IBERICA AG. This press is built to IBERICA’s high exacting standards, using original production processes 100% developed in our plant in Barcelona, to ensure long life and high productivity. Including many advanced electronic devices, the I-PRESS Series is one of the fastest and most precise pieces of equipment in its sector.
 
The I-PRESS Series can be equipped with the new OPMR (Optical Print Mark Register) for the front and side-lays registration. A fully automatic non-stop feeder and a full logistics system, completely removes manual handling of incoming and outgoing piles.
The versatility of the I-PRESS Series gives the possibility to die-cut several types of substrate including paper, plastic, board and corrugated material.
The comprehensive range of optional equipment allows the configuration of the "perfect" Die-Cutter giving our customers the ideal machine for all of their requirements in the Packaging Industry.

Features
  1. Automatic feeder head designed for quick and easy preparation comfortably handles a wide range of materials. In conjunction with incorporated automatic pile displacement, perfect feeding of sheets is achieved. Perfect sealing of the vacuum system gives improved suction and blast.
  2. Lateral displacement of the pile by a revolutionary laser system to ensure perfect positioning of the pile.
  3. Total control of the movement of the sheet through the touch screen. The operator can easily advance or delay the arrival of the sheet to the front lays thus, improving the register at high production speeds.
  4. Feed table made from anti-static stainless steel. Latest generation of accessories for perfect feeding of the sheet. Its’ design reduces set up time thus, optimising time spent by the operator.
  5. The side register is controlled through a sensor which perfectly positions the sheet before it enters the press. With the absence of a physical stop, this side guide allows operation of all types of material with no issues. Double sheet detector is incorporated into the side-lay.

Screen Printing - KBA RAPIDA RSP 106

Rotary screen printing in sheetfed offset quality
The Rapida RSP 106 transforms your print product into a multisensory experience: Exceptional coating thicknesses, unusual coating effects, special pigments, fluorescent inks – with screen printing, the diversity of finishing options is practically endless. One important reason is an attainable ink or coating thickness which is ten times that of the sheetfed offset process – up to 250 µm.
Rapida platform as the basis
The Rapida RSP 106 is based on the platform concept of the Rapida offset presses for medium format and thus shares the high technical level which characterises all presses from KBA. The operating concept, too, is immediately familiar. That simplifies internal processes and further enhances the efficiency of production.

Outstanding features of the Rapida RSP 106:
  • Exceptional productivity with outputs up to 8,000 sheets/h
  • Multitude of finishing possibilities
  • High level of automation
  • Economical production also for longer runs
  • Very good spreading of the coating and thus high gloss
High diversity of applications
Thanks to its advanced level of automation and incomparable performance capabilities, the Rapida RSP 106 is an interesting choice for the most diverse applications and market segments.
Offset printers who have to date used exclusively an inline process for finishing benefit from the boundless possibilities of the screen printing process. Screen printing is especially suitable for high-quality finishes on advertising products, as well as for signs, posters and packaging. The high production speeds, furthermore, mean that screen printing becomes an interesting option for run lengths which were simply out of the question in the past.
Screen printers benefit above all from the high production speeds of the Rapida RSP 106. With outputs up to 8,000 sheets per hour, it is significantly more productive than a conventional screen printing press. Delivery times are shortened, and longer runs are more economical than ever before.
The Rapida RSP 106 also sets you up for a broad spectrum of untypical applications, for example in industrial printing. Screen printing offers interesting perspectives in printed electronics, home decor products and many other previously unimagined fields.

High level of automation
Automation comparable to a sheetfed offset press – that aptly characterises the Rapida RSP 106. The DriveTronic feeder, sidelay-free infeed, VariDry dryer systems, AirTronic delivery and ErgoTronic console technology are highlights already well appreciated by Rapida users. They are here supplemented with a calender unit, which depowders and smooths the sheets, and prevents contamination of the impression zone for optimum finishing results.
The screen printing unit itself is also automated to the last detail. For example with stepless, motorised setting of the blade pressure, motorised blade angle adjustment and remote setting of the cylinder pressure. An operator panel at the screen printing unit and full console integration add to the convenience of handling. Screen changing is a fast and simple process.

High gloss
The technical design of the Rapida RSP 106 is geared to perfect finishing results. Relief structures and haptic effects are realised with ease. Special pigments lend print products an eye-catching appearance. And the excellent spreading of coatings is the key to high gloss.
One significant factor is the triple-length extended delivery, with its 3.8-metre drying section and thus ample installation space for the proven, high-performance VariDry IR/UV dryers. Further important features are the closed-loop dryer output control and lamp replacement without the need for tools.
