The Times of In­dia, In­dia’s largest English-lan­guage daily, has hired EAE En­gi­neer­ing Au­to­ma­tion Elec­tron­ics for an up­grade of a man­roland GEOMAN web press at its print­ing cen­ter in Sahibabad, out­side Delhi. The retro­fit rep­re­sents EAE’s big­gest-ever di­rect or­der from In­dia.

The Times is owned by media group Ben­nett, Cole­man & Co. Ltd. (The Times Group) and has a daily circulation of more than 3 mil­lion. The com­pany op­er­ates 13 print­ing cen­ters around the coun­try. Ahrens­burg, Ger­many-based EAE will ex­change the en­tire press and drive con­trols, the most im­por­tant drives and the ob­so­lete In­ter­bus loop sys­tem. The ex­ist­ing PECOM sys­tem will be su­per­seded by a modern EAE so­lu­tion plus an EAE Print pro­duc­tion plan­ning and pre­set sys­tem. Three con­trol con­soles be­long­ing to the very new­est EAE Desk 7 gen­er­a­tion will si­mul­ta­ne­ously re­place the present PECOM press con­trol con­soles.

EAE in Ahrens­burg will take care of the plan­ning, soft­ware devel­op­ment and pro­ject-re­lated co­or­di­na­tion, and the op­er­a­tional im­ple­men­ta­tion in the field will be in the hands of QIPC-EAE In­dia.

The retro­fit is set to take place be­tween Fe­bru­ary and July 2018.
