Managing Director Mats Muregård talks of a strong upward trend for business with newspaper products over recent years. In addition to inserting production, quarterfold processing has experienced above-average growth, with the existing quarterfold system with its maximum output of 10,000 copies an hour rapidly coming up against its limits. With a single StreamFold line it is now possible to boost net output by a multiple factor and at the same time achieve disproportionately higher production security. Bearing in mind later updates, this variant offered the opportunity to take a technological leap forwards in conveyor technology, bundling and line control as well. The decision in favour of Ferag was therefore obvious. Integration of StreamFold has been planned so that the quarterfold line can be fed off existing TTR conveyor technology from two folder deliveries. The connection between the StreamFold outlet and the MultiStack compensating stacker will now be secured via a UTR conveyor system.
By selecting the Ferag solution, Nya Wermlands-Tidningen is continuing its policy of secure investment. The new production technology and the Navigator control mark the start of a complete replacement of the 17-year-old system at a later date.
