Cold­set Print­ing Part­ners plan mas­sive retro­fit

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

Cold­set Print­ing Part­ners or­dered two new “dou­ble-width KBA Cortina” presses and a com­pre­hen­sive retro­fit pro­gram for its ex­ist­ing KBA Com­man­der line. The retrofits are planned to go live at the CPP print cen­ter in Paal-Berin­gen, Bel­gium some­time within 2018 to 2019.

“It was es­pe­cially im­por­tant for us, that we can ob­tain ev­ery­thing we need from a sin­gle source,” Paul Huy­brechts, CPP man­ag­ing di­rec­tor said. “The big­gest chal­lenge will be to co­or­di­nate the ex­ten­sive retro­fit mea­sures per­fectly with the in­stal­la­tion of the new presses. But given our long­stand­ing part­ner­ship, we are con­vinced that Koenig & Bauer will ac­com­plish this task in ad­mirable fash­ion,”

This is be the first of six retrofits planned.

Mean­time, Reiner Haseloff started up the new line of KBA Com­man­der CL news­presses at Mit­teldeutsche Zeitung, a mem­ber of the Du­Mont me­dia group.

“Long-term stud­ies have shown that peo­ple view daily news­pa­pers as the most cred­i­ble of all me­dia. They are seen as par­tic­u­larly dis­cern­ing, com­pe­tent, ob­jec­tive and crit­i­cal,” Reiner Haseloff said.

Prime Min­is­ter Reiner Haseloff and Bernd Preuße, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Du­Mont Druck, press the start but­ton to bring the new Com­man­der CL on stream.
