Shin-Nihonkai Orders Mitsubishi DIAMONDSPIRIT

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Shin-Nihonkai Newspaper, headquartered in Tottori City along the Sea of Japan has ordered the Mitsubishi DIAMONDSPIRIT newspaper press to replace its existing press lines. The sale marks the second order in Japan for Mitsubishi's high-speed 4 x 1 presses, following on the heels of the four press lines ordered recently by Nikkan Sports Printing.

Shin-Nihonkai Newspaper has been using single width newspaper presses to handle its production of the Nihonkai Shimbun, Osaka Nichinichi Shimbun and other newspapers with a daily total circulation of 200,000 copies. However, after carefully evaluating the Mitsubishi DIAMONDSPIRIT in terms of stable and reliable operating records and weighing the merits of 4 x 1 presses, the company decided to move away from single width presses and elected to go with the double width Mitsubishi DIAMONDSPIRIT.

The Mitsubishi DIAMONDSPIRIT press destined for Japan's second user will be configured with two four-over-four tower printing units, three two-over-one tower printing units, five 50-inch three-arm RTPs and one double rotary folder.

The press will be installed at Shin-Nihonkai's new plant in Tottori City and is scheduled to start production in November 2009.
