Press embarks on 2,000-mile relocation

An investment in a new piece of equipment will see a used ROTOMAN press embark on a huge journey as it is relocated almost 2,000 miles, from Bechtle Druck in Germany all the way to Egypt.

The press is travelling from Germany to Egypt

When Cairo-based print firm, Modern Arab Establishment for Printing and Publishing, decided to invest in the press, it called on manroland Goss and its subsidiary, GWS Printing Systems, to help bring the machine to its site.

The company, which is believed to be one of the oldest private printing companies in Egypt, has had a working relationship with GWS for almost ten years.

The ROTOMAN press is the third machine that Modern Arab Establishment has taken order of from GWS since 2015 and the project is the first joint press relocation for GWS and manroland Goss.

In preparation for its journey, a team of technicians and a GWS supervisor dismantled the machine which has now begun its relocation to Egypt

The press has a cylinder circumference of 630mm and a maximum web width of 965mm as well as a four-unit press with one web, one dryer and a folder for quarterfold production.

In preparation for its journey, a team of technicians and a GWS supervisor dismantled the machine which has now begun its relocation to Egypt.

The technical project management has been undertaken by both manroland Goss and GWS with the two companies set to oversee the installation at the end of summer when the machine arrives at its destination.
