Main-Post renews its commitment to innovative compact press technology
Third KBA Commander CT in four years
Decision for greater productivity, flexibility and quality
The new 32-page section of the KBA Commander CT is to be delivered in summer 2009 and is scheduled to go on stream in January 2010. Designed for a cut-off length of 500 mm and a maximum web width of 1,400 mm, the press is tailored specifically to the slightly reduced Rhine format preferred by Main-Post. In addition to the two towers, which are both equipped with fully automatic KBA PlateTronic plate changers, automatic KBA RollerTronic roller locks and KBA NipTronic bearings, the order covers also two Pastomat reelstands, two turner decks, a folder superstructure with two formers, a KF 5 jaw folder and two ErgoTronic control consoles. The new press section is furthermore to be integrated into the existing ABB production management and press presetting system MPS Production. Andreas Kunzemann, technical manager of the Main-Post group: "In future, we will be able to print up to 47,000 newspapers per hour, and that with only a minimum of conversion for the various local editions."
In illustrious company
After its renewed decision in favour of the innovative Commander CT, Main-Post finds itself in illustrious company. Just a few weeks before the new installation enters production in Würzburg-Heuchelhof, a major triple-width Commander CT 6/2 press line with a total of 15 towers will be starting up for the first time at the New York Daily News.
