Nordic print house moves, up­grades Com­man­der press

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

Nordic print­ing group, V-Tab or­dered a retro­fit for its plant in Land­vet­ter, Swe­den from EAE.

V-TAB op­er­ates six print­ing cen­ters across Swe­den and pro­duces a vast num­ber of pa­pers across the re­gion. The plan is to have the presses mod­ern­ized within the com­ing months.

The plant in Land­vet­ter is equipped with a man­roland Color­man web press with eight tow­ers and three fold­ers.

Ini­tially EAE will out­fit a KBA Com­man­der web press built in 2000 that was moved to the Lan­vet­ter plant from the now closed plant in Ore­bro. It will serve as the ninth tower for the Color­man web press. EAE will con­vert the KBA Com­man­der’s four-high tower to lat­est-gen­er­a­tion EAE press con­trols and will con­nect it to the Color­man web press’ ex­ist­ing EAE con­trol tech­nol­ogy.

“We’re in­creas­ingly frus­trated by qual­ity prob­lems with the old print­ing units, and we des­per­ately need to take ac­tion to avert the me­chan­i­cal fail­ures that will oth­er­wise be in­evitable,” Dan Eriks­son, tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of V-Tab, said. “The aim of this retro­fit is to raise the qual­ity bench­mark and re­store the re­li­a­bil­ity of our pro­duc­tion equip­ment.”
