Tensor Group Inc. in Woodridge, Ill., has sold two T-1400 series four-high towers to Media Pro Group, a Romanian newspaper, printing and entertainment company. The sale was through VIP-Systems Graphische Maschinen GmbH, Tensor’s agent headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany.
The equipment will be installed in two Media Pro Group plants: one tower at Compania de Productie Tipografica, in Cluj, and the other at Coprint, in Timisoara — cities ideally located for print and distribution of the national dailies ProSport, Publimedia International’s Ziarul Financiar, Evenimentul Zilei, Ringier’s Libertatea, Jurnalul National, Editura Intact’s Financiarul and Catavencu’s Business Standard. Bothfacilities also print regional and local dailies, weeklies and monthlies.
The Tensor towers will be added onto Heidelberg Harris presses and will be driven by a footprint-shaftless drive system with control consoles and motors provided by DCOS of Sweden. EPG remote inking system and AutoSet/AutoPage touchscreen controls are integrated into each console.
Each tower (630mm cutoff, one-meter web width) adds four colors and additional pages to produce varied tabloids of various sizes at speeds to 35,000 impressions per hour.
The towers feature motorized sidelay and circumferential adjustment and motorized ink fountain rollers and are equipped with spiral-brush dampeners, insulated water trays, swing-down cast-iron ink fountains and EPG controls with 28 keys per fountain.
