The M-1000B is a multicolor web offset press used for commercial and newspaper printing and produced by Heidelberg-Harris. In 1997, Heidelberg restructured, changing the producer to Web Press under the Heidelberg brand. The M-1000B was revolutionary in 1986 and was capable of running at more than 1,600 feet per minute and making 50,000 impressions in an hour. In 1986, a single 85-foot press sold for $2.7 million.
