Burger Druck adds to print capacity

In summer this year, Burger Druck will be starting up a medium-format sheetfed offset press from the Rapida 106 series for the very first time. The new Rapida generation for the 3b format (max. sheet format 740 × 1,060 mm) has therefore now also arrived in the Breisgau region. The modern five-colour press with coater, extended delivery and production speeds up to 18,000 sheets per hour is set to take over the main production load from a still relatively new press with a similar level of equipment but significantly lower performance. This move is intended to boost competitiveness, especially in commercial printing.
