As reported earlier this week, The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne (Ind.) unveileda new press earlier this week, but apparently it still has a few kinks to work. The paper reported in today’s print edition that a series of production problems caused delays in delivering The Journal Gazette on Friday, as follows:
“An initial delay was caused when the Weekender section was sized incorrectly for printing purposes, said Kathy Dobbins, printing manager. Bigger problems surfaced when a device for bending plates for printing was not aligned and some plates cracked. A machine that folds the newspapers also jammed, prompting more delays, she said.
“The problems occurred during the first full week of production on Fort Wayne Newspapers? new press. Dobbins said some problems are to be expected. ‘Please be patient with us as we work out the startup bugs in our new press,’ Dobbins said.”
