The installation works of the most specific printing machine in the region started today as the “first in the Middle East” at the new site of Teram Industrial Group.
Named KOENIG & BAUER Rapida 106 – 7 + LTT + 1 + L ALV3 – CX – FAPC + UV & HYBRID + COLD FOIL, it is the most special machine ever installed in the Middle East by its manufacturer, KOENIG & BAUER.
The printing machine has been designed to meet the needs of mass-circulation special packaging and some of its capabilities have not been implemented in the country to date.
The Rapida 106 machine that is being installed has twelve towers and their special layout enables the production of all possible combinations of printing industry worldwide in the Year 2019 for the Teram Industrial Group. In addition to 8-color printing, this printing machine is capable of producing a variety of special visual effects including hybrid UV, opaque, glossy, acrylic, textures, irodine and so on.
The machine is also capable of printing much higher quality metallized material than has ever been done in the country. There have always been technical problems in the country with regard to metallized printing and, in principle, printing on non-absorbent composite surfaces, relying on modern day printing industry knowledge. For example, the most important problem with metallized stoppage printing is when it is powered by static electricity, while all the newer equipment, including the Rapida 106, has the potential to remove the static electricity, which will improve the printing speed and quality.
Another very special feature that was made possible for the first time in the country is Cold Foil Stamping.
This technique can accurately prepare one foam, foil-molding operation on the printing machine. The main difference between Cold Foil Stamping and metallization is that Cold Foil can be printed locally, unlike metallized, transferring metallic luminosity to specific areas on the surface to be printed, creating unique visual features and effects by contrasting opaque surfaces and glossy surfaces. , While in metallized printing this luster will inevitably be applied to the entire surface of the print sheet.
Other new and applied technologies such as ergotronics (color management via LAB color reading), ACR (Spot Registry), SIS (badge removal) and many more are available in this printing machine, all producing very high quality standards. The global printing industry will lead to reduced delivery times, increased cardboard productivity and ultimately lower final cost prices.
