Installation has begun of a four-unit Rotoman web offset press in the research and training facility of GATF (Sewickley, PA). The system arrived one year after MAN Roland (Westmont, IL) signed its pledge to donate the Rotoman to GATF.

GATF’s Rotoman is a four-couple press integrated with a 1:2:3 combination folder. It is equipped with Power Plate Loading (PPL), AC shaftless drives, and MAN Roland’s PECOM command and control system.

The press’ public commissioning is scheduled for Sept. 19, where more than 500 industry executives will receive facility tours and demos, and receive a commemorative publication that will be printed on the press.
