The former Offsetdruckteam Witten was integrated as Ellerhold Witten into Ellerhold corporation.

A view into the print shop: The large format is clearly dominating the production.

Ellerhold Witten trust in XXL cutting system from Schneider Senator SSB.

Buchholz / Witten.

For the production of large format posters company Ellerhold Witten was in need of a new cutting system. The location in Witten is the 4th production premise of the Ellerhold group in Germany. As cutting systems from Schneider Senator had been in use for many years on the other premises, the decision was easy: The order for the new machines was placed at Schneider Senator.

The production main focuses of Ellerhold in Witten are posters and labels. Until August, 1st 2009 the company founded in 1964 was known as Offsetdruckteam Witten, then it became daughter company of Ellerhold corporation. The newly designed print shop comprises a KBA Rapida 205 (max. printing format: 1.550 x 2.050mm;  61.02x80.71 inch). Accordingly the fact was important, that the guillotines works with a diagonal format of exactly 2,57m (101.18 inch). That means that the operator needs a cutting width of 260 cm (102.36 inch) to turn the ream under the knife.

Schneider Senator offered the right solution to company's founder and chairman Frank Ellerhold. As a replacement for an old Amercian cutting system they installed a guillotine Senator E-Line 260 CT together with a jogger type 4078, movable transfer tables as well as restacker type 4553. There is a transfer table system that cares for sheet transfer between the system components. The installed peripherial equipment is a must for handling in extra-large format sizes. The weight of the ream makes automation mandatory.


Any components are characterised by extremly robust and solid cast iron frame construction, which is imperative for »Jumbo«-paper formats and -weight to guarantee longevity and precision. The cutting system provides
CIP 4-compatibility, cut optimzer, correction module, touch-screen and digital clamp pressure adjustment.

The Senator E-Line 260 from Schneider Senator is the only guillotine with a cutting width of 260 cm which is Made in Germany. Accordingly XXL-printing machine users trust on the Northern Germany manufacturer. So Schneider Senator had installed two further E-Line 260 in the region of Nordrhein-Westfalen in the past 12 months.
