Article Type: New materials and equipments From: Pigment
One of Baldwin's Jetstream 1000 contact-less web cleaning system has been installed on a Wifag OF 7/570 GTD press at France's largest daily newspaper, Le Monde.
Shaun Kilfoyle, President of Baldwin Oxy Dry Americas, commented: “AWS is a highly respected brand, with a large base of systems installed throughout North America. AWS products fit our strategy to offer a broader range of complementary systems and services to our existing sheetfed and web OEM, dealer and customers in the Americas.” He continued: “The distribution and marketing agreement for AWS products provides an effective counter-measure to adverse currency volatility. The agreement with Thermal Care gives us an alternative local source for water and temperature control systems currently manufactured at our Competence Centre for commercial sheet-fed and web products in Friedberg, Germany.”
