Tensor International LLC, a U.S. manufacturer of single-width web offset press equipment, is pleased to announce its sale of two press towers to Signature Graphics of Portland, Oregon.
The two new Tensor T-400BE 4-high towers are replacing two legacy towers on Signature Graphics’ impressive 15-tower, 7-folder press line. The 21.5” cutoff towers are loaded with features to provide enhanced dot reproduction and greater registration controls, including pre-loaded bearing-mounted eccentrics, bearers on the blanket and plate cylinders, and helical drive gears for smoother gear movement. Motorized ink fountain rollers and remote inking system offer easy color control and beautiful finished print quality.
“We’re very familiar with the Tensor equipment and have enjoyed solid success with our Tensor press,” said Dan Dutton, Executive Vice President of Signature Graphics. “We had a tough decision to make on our choice of supplier with this upgrade project, but after visiting with Tensor’s team in Woodridge, we came away with a confident sense of the new company’s determined commitment to deliver an excellent product while standing behind their strong service and parts programs.”
“This trust from Signature Graphics is invaluable to us,” said Mike Pavone, Tensor’s COO and VP of Sales. “We are proud to support them in every way possible as they continue to expand into an exciting and prosperous future.”
Signature’s press line produces commercial-quality inserts, catalogs, coupon books, and high-volume newspapers.
