For production of national dailies at its new Budapest printing plant, Ringier Kiad? KFT ordered an OF 370 S press from Wifag, of Bern, Switzerland.
The configuration of four four-high printing towers, two folders and four reelstands allows production of 64 pages broadsheet or 128 pages tabloid in full color. Alternatively, two different products may be printed simultaneously, each 32 pages broadsheet or 64 pages tabloid. Delivery will be next September, with production to start by the end of 2005.
In addition to this new press, the Ringier Kiad? KFT plant at Harbor-Park, near the Danube River in south suburban Budapest, will install a used Wifag OF 790 press with two new OF 370 S add-on towers. Production on this machine is to begin this month.
