WOODRIDGE, ILLINOIS, USA - Tensor International LLC, a U.S. manufacturer of single-width web offset press equipment, has been selected by Le Soleil Newspaper in Dakar, Senegal, as choice supplier for a new ten-unit, one-folder single-wide web press.
The Tensor T-1400 press will produce the Le Soleil daily newspaper and various semi-commercial printed materials and is configured with two towers plus two press units mounted on Tensor rollstands and a Tensor T-1 jaw folder. One tower is equipped with a UV curing system to give Le Soleil additional capability to print brilliant color for ad inserts and magazines.
“The addition of this press will make a positive impact on Le Soleil’s business model, especially as the UV technology will help expansion into semi-commercial production,” said Mike Pavone, Tensor’s COO and VP of sales. “We’re proud to be part of Le Soleil’s interesting future.”
The press will be installed in Dakar during fourth quarter this year.
