ICP-Roto Industrie Graphique, a commercial and newspaper printing house on the French island of La Reunion, has installed a new Cortina from Koenig & Bauer.
The Cortina has an automatic reelstand, an ultra-compact printing tower, an efficient hot-air dryer system, a flexible superstructure and two semi-commercial jaw folders. This press line incorporates numerous 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 color and cut-off register controls. “The Cortina is definitely much easier to operate than conventional offset presses,” says technical director Philippe Van Damme.
“The new Cortina is the centerpiece of our printing house. Our whole team is incredibly proud of the new press,” says owner Alfred Chane-Pane.
The installation of the press line on the Indian Ocean island also confirms the importance the company’s management attaches to ecological concerns in an area where tourism dominates, according to a Koenig & Bauer release.
