Salzburger Nachrichten Gets a New Mailroom
Posted: 4/20/2012 | By: Press Release | Ferag
A comprehensive investment programme by the Salzburger Nachrichten had already begun in 2010, covering an update of all the technology in prepress, as well as the press hall and the mailroom. This national title thus underlines the status of the printed newspaper for this media house – in addition to a host of other activities. Since the start of 2012, a triple-width CT Commander press from KBA has been printing all titles. “With the printing machine, we can process grammages up to 120. We’ve also made sure we have several options that will enable us to offer the advertising industry special advertising forms that are new and attractive“, Salzburger Nachrichten CEO Roman Minimayr can confirm.
A clear lead in net output
Thanks to high net output as well as the XtraWin concept that gives the company access to functions like trimming and card gluing, Ferag has been able to see off the competition in the mailroom. “With the Ferag mailroom, we now have the resources we require to cope efficiently with production peaks, and in addition we are keeping all our options open for expanding the mailroom going forward”, says Roman Minimayr. Inserting preprints and supplements is carried out with an MSD2-C inserting drum operating in combination with the RollStream precollecting system with a total of six hoppers. Here, too, the Salzburger Nachrichten reaps the benefits of the high net output of the inserting drum, which achieves 45,000 copies an hour. In addition, it has been possible to give zoning a further boost.
