World record – entering a new print dimension with Hansaboard

​20 April 2012

In co-operation with Smurfit Kappa, Koenig & Bauer, Print Press manufacturer, will present its new Rapida 145 high speed print press, running on Hansaboard 300 gsm from Smurfit Kappa Hoya Papier und Karton GmbH at this year’s Drupa exhibition.

At the pre-Drupa-event in mid-March 2012, Koenig & Bauer AG provided an insight into the new Rapida 145 to an exclusive circle of users. During this first appearance the machine was achieved a new world record in size 6-printing speed when Hansaboard 300 gsm was printed at 17.000 sheets per hour!

We would like to pass on our congratulations to KBA for this new world record and are very pleased that our Hansaboard GD2 has contributed to this success.

Visit us at this year’s Drupa taking place in Düsseldorf on May 3 to 16, 2012 to see this world record breaking machine running in combination with our Hansaboard GD2.

Presentations take place three times a day: 11.30 am, 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm at KBA hall 16 / C47-1 and C47-2.



Hansaboard is a fully coated White Lined Chipboard (WLC) that is FSC and PEFC certified.
