The prominent attendees from more than 100 print firms from across India and other countries witnessed the live demonstration of the newly launched CROMOMAN 4-1 double width coldest web-offset press from manroland web systems and an overall plant tour of the facility.

In the live press demonstration, technical experts from manroland web systems demonstrated the various cost efficient features of the press to leading players in the Indian newspaper market and international markets as well. The CROMOMAN 4-1 installed at The Times of India is a first-of-its-kind double width single circumference web offset press in the world. The press is designed especially for emerging markets like India with its space saving design and cost efficient features. Radically designed for emerging markets…

The CROMOMAN 4-1 is a double width, single circumference press with H-type printing units but with floor mounted reel stands placed parallel to each other. The press is designed to produce printing speeds of up to 75,000 copies per hour offering various production options such as web width variability and quarter folds. With the compact design, the CROMOMAN can fit into existing buildings thus eliminating the need to construct a special building and thus reducing infrastructure costs drastically. With no air conditioning requirements and a short installation time of just 6-8 weeks, the press offers a higher ROI (return on investment) for the customer. The press has also been tested for printing on Indian grade newsprint. With a height of just 5.4 m, the press can fit into existing pressrooms and significantly reduces overall capital expenditure. Commissioned in February 2012, the press has been successfully meeting the high quality and productivity standards of The Times of India.

Great response from India…

Peter Kuisle, executive vice president, manroland web systems GmbH said, “The open house gave us an opportunity to showcase our newest product: CROMOMAN 4-1 to the Indian market and highlight its superior and efficient features in a live press demonstration. We are delighted by the overwhelming response we have received for the product in India and the impressive attendance at the open house. Our technical experts from Germany addressed the queries of the various visitors. The open house was a great success for both The Times of India and manroland web systems.”
