Auction extended: Heidelberg CD102 in the lots

The double printing auction for equipment from Dotprint in Springvale and Cardboard Containers in Rosebery will now finish at the end of next week, as the volume of traffic caused the Printing Machinery Auctions website to crash yesterday on what should have been the final day of the online auction.

All registrants will have the opportunity to bid or re-bid. The auction site is keeping bidders informed and says it expects to have the site  live again tomorrow (Thursday). Click for the auction.

The plant and equipment for a complete B1 printing operation is being auctioned, as the kit as Springvale, Vic, operation Dotprint goes under the hammer.

At the same time surplus plant from Cardboard Containers in Rosebery, NSW, is also going up for auction, as the company merges with another Sydney print and packaging outfit.

Centrepiece of the Dotprint auction is a Heidelberg CD 102-5 (1998), a five-colour automated 102 Carton Diameter (CD) offset press, with 199 million impressions. Finishing equipment includes two Polar guillotines, three Heidelberg cylinders,, two Muller-Martini saddles stitchers, and three MBO folders.

The Cardboard Containers auction sees a 1988 Roland 606 B1 six-xolour press going under the hammer. There is no reserve, and the successful bidder will likely get the press for less than $10,000.

There is also a Bobst SP 900 E available for bids. It was manufactured in 1972, reconditioned and upgraded 2005. Also available is a Keck boxmaker, several Heidelberg cylinders, and a 1973 Solna four-colour offset press.

Up for auction: Roland 606 a late addition to the lots
