Rapida 75 PRO for Länggass Druck in Berne
Single-press concept as the core element of a strategic reorientation
Länggass Druck AG was founded in 1878 and is a successful long-established Swiss company in the heart of Berne. It sees itself as a competent service provider and offers a broad portfolio of conventional and digital products, comprising media prepress, printing, equipment as well as logistics.
Within the framework of a strategic reorientation, the two managing directors, Tomi Reinhardt and Markus Geiger, after intensive evaluation, decided in favour of a single-press concept with the new Rapida 75 PRO.
Since 2008/2009, Länggass Druck has been using two Rapida 75 half-format presses, a five-colour press with coating and a four-colour perfector. These are now to be replaced by a highly automated Rapida 75 PRO with coating unit. Länggass Druck now has the ideal preconditions for providing optimum solutions for the many different customer requirements.
Greater productivity and production efficiency are expected from the higher press output of up to 16,000 sheets per hour, as well as from the extended features, automation and process integration. The customer-specific service concept of Print Assist AG, including 24/7 remote maintenance by the factory, means ideal support for the medium-sized company. The Rapida 75 PRO featured at drupa 2016 proves convincing with short, effective makeready times, a practice-oriented automation concept, a high level of operating comfort, excellent print quality and functional design. The lower energy and space requirements in comparison to other presses is ideal for Swiss requirements.
Wide range of features
Its comprehensive technical equipment includes fully automatic plate changing (FAPC), the disengaging of unused inking units from the control console, parallel washing processes (CleanTronic Synchro), a coating unit with semi-automatic forme changing and automatic flushing, VariDryBLUE IR/hot-air dryers with high energy-saving potential, as well as QualiTronic ColorControl inline colour measuring and control technology. With the “One-Button Job Change” program on the new ErgoTronic control console, time savings of up to 50% can be achieved.
