Dos prensas Koenig and Bauer Commanders han sido trasladadas con mucho éxito

Israel’s largest media company has been a client of Koenig & Bauer for nearly three decades

  • 30 years of successful partnership
  • Moving and commissioning by Koenig & Bauer
  • Largest media company in Israel

Israel’s largest media company, Yedioth Ahronoth Group, has been a customer of Koenig & Bauer for nearly three decades. Their successful partnership is now reinforced and continued in the long run by moving two Commander machines.

The two systems were moved from the North of Israel into the main print shop in Rishon-le-Zion, a suburb of Tel Aviv. "The move was prepared and organised outstandingly. It was executed in a highly professional manner and with impressive results. We are greatly satisfied with our colleagues at Koenig & Bauer – as we have been for 30 years already," says Inon Engel, CEO of Yedioth Ahronoth Group. Five Commander presses by Koenig & Bauer are now standing in the main print shop. The two Commander sections that were moved comprise six reelstands and six H-build printing towers with web widths of up to 1520 mm. The systems are equipped with a Patras reel supply, six Pastostar RC reelstands and two KF5 folders.

Jochen Schwab, head of service for projects and contract management at Koenig & Bauer Digital & Webfed: "The project went perfectly smoothly. The great communication and planning on both sides made for a smooth process right on schedule. After all, we moved close to 1000 tons." Before disassembly commenced, reference prints were made together and kept. The acceptance tests after commissioning proved at least comparably good printing and folding, confirming the quality of the assembly and commissioning work.

El sistema de trabajo KODAK PRINERGY Workflow cumple su 20 aniversario transformando la operación de los impresores

Over 150 Printers, industry partners and media from around the world convened in New Orleans at the 2019 GUA Conference to mark the 20th anniversary of the print industry’s leading prepress automation software, KODAK PRINERGY Workflow. The two-day forum celebrated twenty years of collaboration between print service providers and Kodak that has transformed the way prepress departments operate, while also fostering lively discussions on the latest technology innovations shaping the future.

At the event, some of the very first printers to introduce PRINERGY into their production workflow were among the attendees.

The relentless march to be more flexible and efficient has meant that printers of all sizes need to integrate solutions that optimize their workflow and throughput while managing their overall costs.

While the demands on printers become more complex with opportunities to grow into new markets, PRINERGY aims to eliminate complexity for printers with comprehensive automation that drives costs down and is easily expandable, so you can add capabilities as your needs change, and your business evolves.”
