Short runs of postcards and greeting cards printed, followed by a high degree of offline finishing and partially manual further processing. As one day's print production is enough to keep the post-press department busy for an average of three days, Druckerei Münch was looking for a five-colour coater press for print format 72 x 104 cm with a demand-oriented level of automation. 


With the Rapida 105, the company installed a modern medium-format sheetfed offset press which shares the same technology platform as the makeready world champion Rapida 106, albeit it with a slightly reduced production speed and scope of automation. The investment outlay thus remained moderate, but the press still offers the enlarged print format necessary for card production based on gang formes, as well as FAPC plate changers, CIP3 workflow, a high-performance coating tower and online quality control directly from the console


Use of the Rapida 105 has slashed makeready times by half compared to the predecessor press. The amount of waste has also been reduced significantly. And with so many products being printed on high-grade substrates, waste savings translate directly into tangible cost savings.
