    I am planning to purchase either SORK-Z or SORM-Z conventional dampening press. According to Drupama site(http://www.drupama.de/3_maschinen_heidelberg_e.htm) these are the measurements of SORK-Z and SORM-Z.

    SORM-Z => Length = 3630mm width = 2080mm height = 2140mm
    SORK-Z => Length = 3630mm height = 2140mm

    My current Entrance Height is 2040mm so can anyone let me know whether it is possible to bring in the machine without doing any construction work to the entrance. Is there anyway that we can reduce the height of the machine by removing any components and fixing it again after it has entered into the premise.

    We are planning to install the machine in the ground floor currently we are running a KORD and KORS without any issue. Is there any need to do any construction work to the ground floor to accommodate SORMZ or SORKZ.

    I don't readily have the specifications on the presses, but I'm certain that the height is includng the leveling bases (or "feet") the printing units rest on. This should give you the clearance you need. If those dimensions are just the printing units and base minus the leveling feet, then your only other two options are (1) remove the inkers, which is very labor intensive or (2) remove the printing units from the base frame, which is also labor intensive, but much less so than removing the inkers. Good luck!

    Regarding the floor prep, the weight differences when comparing the the K presses to the S presses leaves no comparison. Given your floor is at least 4" thick ofof concrete, you should have no issues. (That's to assume there is no basement!) If you have a basement under pressroom, you'd better consider shoring up the floor from basement level.
