Manugraph introduces ECOLINE

-India’s first compact press suitable for small to medium newspapers.

Addressing the growing demand from Indian customers, Manugraph India Ltd (MIL) has launched the new ECOLINE press, a versatile single width, single circumference press for newspaper printing.

Manugraph's newly unpacked ECOLINE follows on the heels of recent new offerings such as the M360 and SMARTLINE from Manugraph’s continuous efforts in bringing new press designs to the global newspaper market.

“The newspaper industry is changing quite rapidly” said Pradeep Shah, managing director, MIL. “At Manugraph we are fully committed to supporting this ever changing newspaper market with state-of-the-art press designs that too at affordable pricing levels,” he added.

Launched this year the new ECOLINE press is an innovative concept that allows four-colour printing on just one operating level. Its compact footprint of 8.5 ft height, and single level operation allows for installation in pressrooms with minimum floor space and ceiling heights. Shorter web leads between printing provides better print quality, improved colour registration and lower waste. The ECOLINE is available with a rated speed of 25,000 copies per hour and is equipped with many standard features that are considered “upgrades” on other presses.

“We continue to work very closely with our Indian newspaper partners. We listened to their need for a compact press at an affordable price and with the ECOLINE we now bring to the newspaper market India’s first compact four-colour press! This will help the portability of news in the tier 2, 3 and 4 markets. Not only it will provide strategic value to such markets, but additionally, will help support multi-product business models and those looking at shorter print runs,” delivered Pradeep.

Initially the ECOLINE will be introduced in India followed by global markets. Manugraph welcomes the opportunity to demonstrate this new technology first-hand with a visit to the MIL facility in Kolhapur, Maharashtra. And will also be on display at Printpack India in February 2015, in Hall 10, Stall F-10 at India Expo Centre, NCR Delhi, in covered area of 174 sq m.
