Step by step to the state of the art
Technical and electrical retrofit of Commander press
Overhauled reelstand now right up to date
Towers and folders to follow in the coming years
One of the largest newspaper printing houses in Iceland, Landsprent ehf, has decided to bring its Commander press from Koenig & Bauer into line with the latest state of the art. Landsprent General Manager Gudbrandur Magnússon: “We have already enjoyed a close and trustful relationship with Koenig & Bauer for a very long time. And it was together that we developed the project of a step-by-step retrofit for our press.”
The process began with successive overhauls of the reelstands. This stage of the project was completed successfully earlier in the year, and attention has now turned to an electrical retrofit for the folders. Technical measures to modernise the printing towers are set to follow in the coming years. “The customers appreciate our longstanding experience and our professional team. The retrofit enhances production reliability for the company, and the quality of its newspapers will also move up another notch,” says Michael Holzapfel, service manager at Koenig & Bauer Digital & Webfed.
