Özgün Companies Group Chooses New Tensor Press for Book Printing

WOODRIDGE, ILLINOIS, USA - Tensor International LLC, a U.S. manufacturer of single-width web offset press equipment, has been selected by Özgün Companies Group to supply a complete new Tensor pressline for its plant in Ankara, Turkey. This is Tensor’s second press order from a Turkish publisher booked within the last month.

The Özgün press, with two T-400BE towers and an H-50 folder, is scheduled for installation during May of this year. The highly automated press package includes a footprint shaftless drive system with DRCS closed loop register controls, web guiding, remote inking, infeeds and splicers. The two towers have a four-web capacity by utilizing dual unwind features on the splicers.

Özgün will produce textbooks and regional newspapers on the new press. For this niche product, the Tensor H-50 folder is equipped with a double-parallel feature and quarter- and half-fold capability. The cutoff is 565mm.

“We required a highly dependable and versatile press system that could withstand a heavy workload,” said F?rat Gündo?an Özgün’s Vice Chairman. “Tensor and Pasifik Trading (Tensor’s sales and service arm in Turkey), maintain strong reputations in the region and we’re convinced their technical expertise and support will be both proactive and efficient,” added F?rat Gündo?an.

“Özgün can expect a high-quality print result with the advanced press control systems, the T-400BE’s full bearer design and the versatility of the H-50 folder,” said Mike Pavone, Tensor’s COO and VP of Sales. “Plus, the highly automated system components will create greater efficiency with low start- up waste and ink consumption.”

Pavone further remarked, “We are very pleased to partner with an exceptional and strong company such as Özgün and look forward to many years of strong and prosperous relations.”

Tensor had recently announced another press sale to a Turkish Book and magazine printer with similar specifications. That press is scheduled for delivery and install (also in Ankara) during this year’s second quarter.
