A web press is a high-volume, fast speed printing press that prints on rolls of paper rather than individual sheets. The press consists of several connected units that rapidly collect, cut and fold the paper to create finished publications.
Our KBA Comet was manufactured in Germany and purchased for $4 million.
The press measures 28 feet tall and 139 feet long. It weighs 189 tons.
A concrete slab 180 feet long and 3.5 feet thick supports the press.A rubber insulator separates this concrete slab from the building'sfoundation, reducing noise and vibration.
At maximum speed, the press can print 65,000 copies per hour.
We print on recycled newsprint using environmentally friendly soy-based inks.
The press uses 17,000 gallons of ink each year.
The weight of one roll of newsprint paper is roughly 1,100 pounds.
Approximately 9.25 miles of newsprint paper make up one roll.
20 to 30 rolls of newsprint paper are used in an average day.
350 to 400 tons of newsprint paper are used in one month.
