Tensor T400 towers with AR70 Pasters


Cut-Off:  560 mm       Maximum Web Width:  800 mm         Maximum Press Speed:  40,000 iph




T-400 StackedTensor’s T-400 single width, 1-around press unit is engineered for high-reliability and long service life. The modular design of the units allows adaptation to changing customer demands.

Tensor’s unique “bearing-in-a-bearing” eccentric design provides optimum dynamic support of the blanket cylinders, which reduces print disturbance.  This feature also provides unsurpassed durability in the critical frame bore area, thus providing a very long service life of the equipment. The T-400 is equipped with a full helical gear train.
