The second 4x1 Cromoman press in Kolkata is now fully operational, delivering top quality in less-than-ideal local conditions.
Announcing the commissioning manroland India managing director Sudeep Bhattacharjee says the press at Bartaman Patrika is the fourth of its unique double-width, one-around design in India and the second in the country's east. Others are at Times of India sites in Mumbai and Kolkata and at the Namasthe Telangana Press in Hyderabad.
"Once again Cromoman has proven that it can give excellent results in tough Indian conditions with features to print 75,000 copies per hour with no air conditioning, tolerating power fluctuations and running on Indian newsprint without the need for special equipment or severers," he says.
The press has the added advantage of fitting into existing buildings with variable stand placement, and offers web width variability with ease of use and operation.
Founded in 1984, Bengali-language daily newspaper Bartaman Patrika is the second-most widely circulated Bengali newspaper in India, and has simultaneous editions for Kolkata, Siliguri, Burdwan and Midnapore, published from each of the West Bengali towns.
The three-tower Bartaman press has automation systems including manroland's PECOM-X control system, and is capable of various product options including 24-pages or a combined 16-pages plus eight pages.
