Aslam Sulaiman explains, “This step was well overdue. We need the larger format for both our packaging and commercial jobs.” Accordingly, the Rapida 105 PRO is equipped for maximum flexibility, accommodating commercial and packaging printing on substrates up to a thickness of 1.2 mm. It is furthermore able to alternate between conventional process and UV inks and coatings. This guarantees the company full planning and design freedoms, serving the interests of both the food packaging sector and high-quality cosmetics packaging. Further important features are the 450 mm raised foundations, CleanTronic Multi washing systems (including CleanTronic UV), non-stop pile changing in the delivery, and a wide range of automation modules.

Founded in 2006, Century Packages with approximately 100 employees has relied on KBA sheetfed presses right from the beginning. Significant reasons include the advanced technology of the Rapida series and the support offered by both the KBA factory in Radebeul and local sales and service partner Imprint Packaging Solutions in Pakistan. With certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and HACCP, Century Packages can today furnish proof of compliance with all the relevant demands of high-quality packaging for the food sector and sustainable work safety management.
