Baden, Switzerland, 10th November, 2005: ABB’s Center of Excellence for Printing, based in Baden, Switzerland, has announced a further sales success for its Master Printing System (MPS) automation systems. The Schleswig-Holsteinischer Zeitungsverlag (sh:z), based in Rendsburg in northern Germany, has selected ABB automation systems for its new MAN Colorman XXL triple-width press. "We’re delighted that sh:z's experiences with the ABB systems and workflow on their existing presses have been so positive that ABB was selected again - without hesitation," says Wolfgang Felber, Head of ABB's Printing Business. The Schleswig-Holsteinischer Zeitungsverlag (sh:z) is the second owner of this new press type to select ABB. The first was Presse-Druck in Ausburg, Germany. At sh:z the scope of ABB's supply includes two MPS Control Consoles, a gateway to MAN’s PECOM controls as well as the integration with the existing MPS Production press management system, MPS Inform production analysis system, and MPS PlateWorkflow.
