Kenmore Envelope sets new world record on its Rapida 106 Press

Koenig & Bauer has officially confirmed that Kenmore Envelope (Richmond, Virginia), a U.S. leader in direct mail specializing in high-quality printing and converting envelopes, has set a new world record on its Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 LED-UV 6-colour press. In one 24-hour span, Kenmore produced an astounding 444,444 gross sheets with only 1% run waste at its Richmond, Virginia facility. “We’re so proud of our extraordinary team and their efforts to achieve this amazing world record,” said Scott Evans, Kenmore’s President & CEO. “This is an unheard-of production performance and displays the phenomenal success of the skill set of our employees, our company’s culture, and the superior technology employed on the Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 Press. We salute Bryce Little, Mike Mahoney, Dylan Williamson, Gary Hahn, Chris Crider, David Beales, Greg Turnmire, Tai Huynh, Panh Lee and Gary Goff. We applaud their incredible talent and dedication producing the highest, all while breaking production records from all around the world.”

“This is an amazing accomplishment,” said Kilian Renschler, President and CEO of Koenig & Bauer (USA & Canada). “The team at Kenmore Envelope is world class and demonstrates the full capabilities of their Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106. They’re an outstanding partner and we’re proud of their achievement.” Kenmore’s team creates elaborate envelopes of all sizes from a variety of paper substrates decorated with specialty coatings, windows and other unique design elements. To address the need for speed and quick turnarounds, Kenmore equipped its Rapida 106 with DriveTronic SRW (Simultaneous Roller Wash), which washes up PMS colours while the press is in operation. This allows Kenmore’s press operators to run a new job while they’re washing up the previous job at the exact same time. Its RS106 Reel Sheeter from Mabeg allows the firm to be more competitive on paper and feed the press quickly from rolls or sheets. The colour control system reads every sheet and controls colour every 10th sheet. This allows Kenmore to secure consistent colour for its clients from the first sheet to the last during production. Kenmore’s press operators have also praised its ease of use and exceptional productivity due to its servo motors and touchscreen interface.
