TCPL invests again in Rapida 106

TCPL, one of India’s largest packaging printers, has placed another order for Rapida sheetfed offset technology at drupa. The company ordered a Rapida 106 with seven inking units and double coater. It is to be installed at the Goa plant. After the installation, TCPL will have 107 printing and finishing units from Koenig & Bauer in operation.

TCPL employs 1,900 people in five production plants spread across India. Since its foundation 25 years ago, it has thus grown continuously and very dynamically. The collaboration with Koenig & Bauer began in 2012. Similar presses, such as the Rapida 106 ordered at drupa, are already in production at TCPL’s Silvassa and Haridwar plants. The new seven-colour Rapida 106 is equipped for printing on plastic and film material with a UV package, but can also produce flexibly in the conventional.

The new investment is aimed at increasing the profitability and reliability of production through greater finishing options in the inline process, according to Saket Kanoria, managing director of TCPL Packaging. He explains: “We are very satisfied with the machines from Koenig & Bauer. The new investment builds on an existing fleet and emphasises our commitment to continuously improve our capabilities through strategic investment.”
