manroland represents Tensor Group's line of single width press equipment in Canada, and exhibits with Tensor Group at Print World 2010, on November 20-22 on booth #1026.
"The Print World show is an excellent opportunity to officially kick off the recent Canadian distribution agreement between manroland and Tensor," says Martina Hozjan-Ruda, Tensor's vice president. "The Canadian marketplace will discover premium quality with highly economical solutions with Tensor press equipment, whether for full pressline needs or for additional color or page requirements for an existing press."
manroland CEO Vince Lapinski remarked, "Tensor and manroland complement each other, in as much as each is a quality press manufacturer, and the blending of product families is well suited." Lapinski continued, "manroland is pleased to represent Tensor products in Canada as we specifically aim to increase our ability to provide the Canada print market with strong print solutions and partners."
Short-run printing, the focus of Print World, fits well with Tensor's web press offerings, the T-400BE and T-460 towers for short-run book, catalog, directory, magazine and insert work and especially the economical, yet highly dependable T-1400 model for small newspaper and insert production. All Tensor models can be equipped with UV curing or dryer systems for high-impact color, and folders can be furnished with quarter folder, double parallel, perforators, stitchers and gluing systems for specialty products. Web widths range from 29" through 40".
At Print World, manroland focuses its short run expertise on the ROLAND 700 DD (DirectDrive), a 41 inch press for the short run sheetfed market. Direct Drive reduces make ready by up to 60%, the multi-tasking Direct Drive is equipped to perform multiple make ready tasks simultaneously which results in zero time plate changing. The electronic print length correction feature allows printers to change print length on individual units therefore eliminating any down time to repack the plate cylinder. Along with a flexible 99 millimeters start of print, the Direct Drive features are all about short run work.
