After nearly 100 years in business, the fami- ly-owned third generation Chattanooga, Tennessee pack- aging printer continues to unveil advances and new ca- pabilities for its customers.

Due to the inline cold foil system on the new Rapida 105 PRO, TPC has reduced its offline conventional hot foil stamping presses from running 24 hours/day to only run- ning one shift per day. “These are massive improvements to efficiency and cost, not to mention the elimination of many stamping dies,” said Joseph A. Schmissrauter III, President of TPC Packaging. “The new press is running 24/7 alongside our other Koenig & Bauer Rapida eight-color press that is run- ning 16/7.
