After the successful completion of service projects overseas in Dubai, Australia, Columbia and Congo, the manroland India service team has proven its mettle once again by reconfiguring a non–manroland UNISET 60 press in India.
manroland web systems GmbH provides the best strategic partnership, based on its superior knowledge of equipment design, construction and the execution of high level projects. This was all in line with customary standards for reliable, high-performance presses.
Supported by a large pool of highly competent engineers, manroland India has yet again succeeded in meeting customer requirements at Malayala Manorama, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.
Malayala Manorama is a daily newspaper published in the Malayalam language in Kottayam (Kerala, India) by Malayala Manorama Company Limited. It currently has a readership of over 10 million (with a circulation base of more than 2.2 million copies). According to the World Association of Newspapers, it has been the 11th most circulated newspaper in the world since 2011. It is the fourth largest newspaper circulated in India and the largest circulated newspaper in Kerala. Malayala Manorama Company Limited is responsible for more than 20 other publications at its 19 printing centres across India and the Gulf region.
The Manugraph-made press was installed at the Malayalam Manorama Thiruvananthapuram centre in March 2003 for the printing of 20 pages with 4 colour pages. Later in 2005, printing units were added to the press for printing 24 pages with 8 colour pages. In August 2014, more units were added to the press to print 24 pages with 16 colour pages. This reconfiguration project was awarded to manroland, with complete trust placed in its highly skilled technical team. The work involved incorporating three more H-type printing units, one colour desk and one drive panel with motor. While the mechanical installation was done by Manorama with help from Manugraph, manroland was in charge of reconfiguration.
The experienced technicians from manroland India and manroland web systems (Germany) carried out the reconfiguration work. They completed the work in just three weeks, much to the customer’s delight!
“We developed the customised software in accordance with the technical configurations of the press. Everything was well managed thanks to the wealth of experience in press manufacturing, more than 160 years, brought by manroland web systems,” said Bijendra Sharma, General Manager, manroland India Technical Services.
