Single-width newspaper presses a hit in Spain for the past twelve years

Big KBA Comet press line shapes up in Córdoba

Würzburg, (PresseBox) - Next summer, Iniciativas de Publicaciones e Impresión in Córdoba, Spain, is adding yet another extension to its single-width KBA Comet press line which, when it was initially installed back in 1995, was one of the first newspaper presses worldwide to feature shaftless drives. To enhance its printing and colour capacity the south Spanish newspaper publishing house has placed an order with Koenig & Bauer for a Comet press with four KBA Pastoline reelstands, four towers for 4/4 and a KF3 folder. An existing section will have two more Pastoline reelstands and towers added. In addition to a comprehensive retrofit package and a control upgrade for two sections, KBA will deliver six new consoles for the complete press installation and a diagnostics PC for remote maintenance. The KBA Comet has a 578mm (22¾in) cut-off on web widths variable between 635 and 840/870mm (25 to 33/34¼in), with 800mm (31½in) as the standard width.

Part of the Zeta group, Iniciativas de Publicaciones e Impresión prints a number of periodicals along with a raft of daily titles that includes Mundo del siglo XXI, La Razón, Sport, Mundo deportivo, three editions of 20 Minutos and Diario Córdoba. Managing director Matías Morillo-Velarde Chiclana says: "Adding a further folder, printing towers and reelstands will enable us to produce up to four titles simultaneously and substantially increase the number of full-colour pages. On top of that the wide choice of web leads will give us much greater flexibility in the production of newspapers with a high colour content yet different page counts."
