Press release from the issuing company

Chinas most influential newspaper now invests again in a commercial press from manroland web systems to further strengthen their market position by investing more in new business fields.

The ROTOMAN HiPrint shines with its excellent price-performance ratio. The 16-page printing system was developed for all-round printers in dynamic markets as a cost-effective solution to print magazines and supplements. And this is exactly what one of Chinas biggest newspaper printers was aiming for. With the new ROTOMAN press, the company now can extend its already existing insert- and magazine production in-house.

People’s Daily is the most important newspaper in China. The company produces more than 70 different editions with approximately five million broadsheet copies each day, which means 1.825 billion copies a year.

A major part of these copies is usually provided with commercial inserts. Besides, the People’s Daily printing centre is also running a growing number of weekly lifestyle-, sports-, TV-, broadcast and advertising magazines. The present production is based on a manroland web systems POLYMAN commercial press that has been already delivered 15 years ago and which cannot solve the growing demands for such a product portfolio anymore. This shall now be extremely pushed forward with a stronger in-house base. The Director of People’s Daily, Mr. Wang Jinghu, says in his statement during the signing ceremony: “People’s Daily therefore demands a constant high quality with, at the same time, a maximum of flexibility and efficiency. The commercial web offset press ROTOMAN HiPrint from manroland web systems is the ideal press for these demands. Therefore Peoples Daily decided to invest in the new technology for the new printing centre in Beijing. This is also a further step in developing our strategic cooperation with manroland web systems. The contract for the ROTOMAN is already the 7th contract with our reliable partner from Germany.”

The ROTOMAN HiPrint for People’s Daily has a cylinder circumference of 546 mm and a maximum web width of 965 mm with a production speed of 60,000 Cyl.rev./h. The new commercial press will help to continue the impressive success story of manroland web systems installations for People’s Daily in China.
