In order to best meet clients’ current and future demands in offset printing, PAWI Verpackungen AG, headquartered in Winterthur, has selected the high-power Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106. An impressive internal event was held with 200 employees in February 2019 to celebrate the introduction of the machine. The printing machine features eight printing mechanisms, two finishing mechanisms and remarkably fast changeover processes for printing, ink and coating mechanisms, guaranteeing top quality.
