Suitable consumables are a decisive prerequisite for optimum use of your Rapida sheetfed offset press. High-quality inks and coatings provide for brilliant print and finishing results.

The consumables which you require for different purposes must usually be obtained from a multitude of individual suppliers.

Extensive technical and technological testing with UV-cured ink systems on all Rapida sheetfed offset press series showed that Toyo UV inks are the ideal complement to our presses when it comes to UV printing. This assessment applies equally for the use of highly reactive HR-UV and LED-UV inks.

Recommended ink series Flash Dry

On this basis, Koenig & Bauer recommends use of the Toyo Flash Dry ink series, especially for the innovative LED-UV process. Toyo inks are in successful use on all UV presses in the customer and training centres at KBA-Sheetfed.
