Our new friends at Ganboa Centro Gráfico (Andoain, Gipuzkoa) are the proud new owners of a 2013 KBA Rapida 106. We purchased this 10-colour press from a printing house in the UK. The press is now in production in Northern Spain and looks magnificent.
The Rapida 106 was cleaned by hand and repainted in original KBA livery at the DPM refurbishment center. The new paintwork is colour-matched, using chemically-resistant paints to ensure a impressive and durable finish.
All cleaning is by hand, with no dry-ice cleaning – this is harder work, but ensures that electrical components, seals and Other sensitive parts are not damaged during the cleaning process. This is particularly important with modern presses, with more sensitive electronic equipment. This press was equipped with DriveTronic SPC and Qualitronic – we had to make sure these vital systems were not damaged during the cleaning process.
