Commercial and newspaper printing house ICP-Roto industrie graphique in Réunion, an island and region of France in the Indian Ocean, recently started up its new Cortina from Koenig & Bauer.
Koenig & Bauer describes the Cortina as featuring an automatic reelstand, a compact printing tower, an efficient hot-air dryer system, a flexible superstructure and two semi-commercial jaw folders. The press line incorporates a range of automation modules such as the Patras A reel-loading system, automatic plate and circumference change, CleanTronic washing systems and RollerTronic roller locks, as well as colour and cut-off register controls.
“The new Cortina is the centrepiece of our printing house. Our whole team is incredibly proud of the new press. Once again, Koenig & Bauer and our team worked together perfectly on its installation and commissioning,” says Managing Director and Owner Alfred Chane-Pane.
Koenig & Bauer explains the Cortina largely features the same technology as its conventional offset counterpart, the Commander CT, but with one key difference – it produces newspapers, magazines and ad supplements in coldset and/or heatset without water and ink keys. Its waterless, keyless inking unit technology is designed to reduce waste and is said to deliver dot-sharp images in 70lpc (175lpi) and FM screens.
“Environmental protection is a matter dear to our hearts. Given that it eliminates the need for dampening units and all the associated additives, Cortina technology is ideal for the eco-friendly production of many very sophisticated products,” says Chane-Pane.
