Yedioth relocates double-width presses to Tel Aviv print centre

Koenig & Bauer has completed a project to move two newspaper presses for Israeli media giant Yedioth Ahronoth.

The Commander presses were moved from the north of Israel into the main print shop in Rishon-le-Zion, a suburb of Tel Aviv, where they join three others.

Chief executive Inon Engel says the move was prepared and organised outstandingly: "It was executed in a highly professional manner and with impressive results."

Six reelstands and six H-build printing towers with web widths of up to 1520 mm were moved, along with their Patras reel supply, six Pastostar RC reelstands and two KF5 folders.

Jochen Schwab, head of service for projects and contract management at Koenig & Bauer Digital & Webfed, says the project went perfectly smoothly. "The great communication and planning on both sides made for a smooth process right on schedule. After all, we moved close to 1000 tons."

Before disassembly commenced, reference prints were made together and kept. The acceptance tests after commissioning proved at least comparably good printing and folding, confirming the quality of the assembly and commissioning work.
