Project Management and Consultation

Project management and consultation is performed during all phases of planning, installation and startup. Individual customer requirements and expectations are extensively analyzed and optimum solutions are developed and executed.


Research and Development

Research and development are ongoing initiatives, resulting in equipment design that continuously exceeds customer expectations.



Quality begins with superior machine components manufactured by one of Tensor's partners, MAH Machine Co, one of the top suppliers to the graphic arts industry since 1977. MAH Machine Co utilizes state-of-the-art machining equipment and each component must pass rigorous quality testing.

Tensor's knowledgeable support staff and availability of quality replacement parts at competitive prices contributes to the total customer satisfaction philosophy adopted by Tensor.


Outstanding Print Quality

Preloaded bearing-mounted blanket eccentrics provide the critical cylinder stiffness required to reduce dot distortion.
Eccentric mounted, fully adjustable plate and blanket cylinders provide tighter print registration by eliminating tolerance accumulation normally associated with a fixed plate cylinder location.


Proven Durability

Bearing-in-a-bearing design approach eliminates frame bore wear.

Tensor's exclusive cylinder manufacturing techniques result in unsurpassed corrosion resistance


Enhanced Ergonomics

An integrally unique true arch design positions the blankets higher and offers a wider opening for easier access. Form roller throw-off shafts located outside of the rollers eliminate ink buildup and maintenance issues.

Tensor believes that customer satisfaction and press performance command their highest priority. They are driven to provide both superior quality and supreme value in the products and services supplied. They will continue to reinvest and improve their performance.
