De Persgroep Printing Installs Nine New MultiStack Units

In the Amstel Business Park printing centre, De Persgroep Printing produces four of the biggest newspapers in the Netherlands. Recently, nine new MultiStack units have brought the mailroom up to the state of the art.

Newspaper circulations totalling 930,000 copies have been produced there on Ferag technology since 2001. The system is connected to four folders. With each of the four lines, production can either be wound onto MultiDisc or sent directly to bundling, while the offline inserting process for two preprints or supplements and inserts is possible on each of the two MSD-M-series MultiSertDrums.

Between May 2011 and July 2012 the entire bundling sector was re-equipped with nine MultiStack units. The acute phase of the upgrade came in the months between October 2011 and March 2012, when the existing stackers were replaced by state-of-the-art MultiStack technology as part of a flying change, so to speak. In no way was daily production to be impeded. Together, the teams from De Persgroep Printing, Ferag, and Ferag’s Dutch agents Veer Motion Solutions performed their masterstroke. Thanks to meticulous planning and perfect teamwork, punctual distribution of all newspapers was assured at all times.
