Manroland Colorman 80 Presses with Double Folder & Ancillary

Category: Newspaper/Coldset
Manufacturer: Manroland
Year: 2005

Additional Machine Details:

1. THE PRESSES Installed in 2005, these two Berliner size presses ceased production in January 2018 and are now being offered as complete systems, or broken down to individual print units and reel stands to support the pagination requirements of a new owner. Located in London, each press consists of eleven columns and contains a double folder for additional production flexibility. Also available are the ancillary systems and plant which served the presses including ink, air and water handling machinery. The equipment here is in impeccable condition having been run at 30% of a design capacity of 80,000 copies per hour. Everything on-site is still under power and available for viewing. 2. THE BERLINER FORMAT The Berliner format is midway between tabloid and broadsheet sold folded with a page dimension of 470mm x 315mm. The equipment here can print in two sizes straight off the press: Full Berliner and Half Berliner. The print site is capable 8-80pp full Berliner at full colour in single pass, and 16-160pp Half Berliner also at full colour in a single pass. Other sizes are possible on this equipment though they would require offline trimming. To support this we are also making available two Muller Martini Primera stitch-and-trim lines, providing additional capacity for magazine or supplementary production. While the Berliner format is unique to our site here in the UK, globally the format is used for many other titles, including La Stampa (Italy), La Vanguardia (Spain) and Le Monde (France). The format provides publishers with a host of advantages: From a production perspective the size can offer significant long term savings on paper and ink. Meanwhile for advertising, the size differentiates the paper from the rest of the market. By allowing publishers to signal broadsheet values while providing the convenience more associated with tabloid sizes, the Berliner format is by no means a product of compromise, but rather a best of both worlds.
