KINNA, October 8th, 2020 – In May 2020, DCOS inked a deal with Tryck i Norrbotten (Luleå, Sweden) to future-proof their eight tower, single folder Goss Magnum press. The order includes a “full DCOS package solution”, replacing and retrofitting the complete Omnicon system, the shaftless drive system and the QTI Multicam system.
Obsolescence of components and support on the Omnicon platform has been driving factors behind the decision as well as the desire to improve waste efficiency and productivity.
“DCOS became the natural choice for us as they can take ownership of all automation systems on the press & auxiliary equipment and be the long-term partner we need to secure future support and uptime from one source. The Closed-Loop Density system is an essential part of our project and we have very high expectations on it being the ROI driver on this whole investment.” Says Leif Bergström, CEO at Tryck i Norrbotten.
The Goss Magnum press was installed in 2009 and is unique in the aspect it has a Goss Universal folder with single former board and three sections ribbon split, all stitched.
Tryck i Norrbotten is a fully owned subsidiary of Norr Media AB which is part of the NTM Media group. NTM group is publishing thirty-three newspapers and operating three printshops across Sweden.
NTM group recently continued its growth in northern part of Sweden by acquiring the newspaper “Norran”. The consecutive closure of “Norrans” printing operation has consequently further increased the print volume at Tryck i Norrbotten.
In order to minimize operational and consumable costs, Tryck i Norrbotten decided to invest in a complete Print Inspection System with Density, Register and Cut-off control. 24 Closed-loop cameras will be installed to ensure maximum waste efficiency and high consistent print quality.
In addition, DCOS sister company AMAL Webline will carry out a retrofit on two of the existing AR70A splicers.
Mattias Andersson, CEO at DCOS: “I’m honored that Leif and his team decided to partner up with DCOS, I’m convinced this will be a success for both parties now and in the future. DCOS has done many similar projects over the years and I think this is where we can bring most value to our customers, one partner that can take overall responsibility and make sure to get the maximum press performance.“
The installation will take place in the fourth quarter of 2020 and finalize prior to the new year.
