Northwest Offset Printing (NWOP) has completed its first run on their “new” pressline on June 1 as scheduled. The 8 Tower Goss Magnum Press was supplied, delivered, and installed by imPRESSions Worldwide. Last year, NWOP built a brand-new 75,000 square foot manufacturing facility to house the 22” cut-off Magnum press and will assume the printing of the Spokesman-Review in the near future. The move to the single-wide with a heat set option will broaden their ability to provide expanded commercial printing. The new plant will provide prepress, printing, packaging, direct mail, and transportation services.
The five-month installation project began in January and has remained on track to the day, reaching this milestone, even in the face of the current health pandemic. The press has two Universal 45 Folders and the ability to run a three-section newspaper on one folder, plus quarter folded heatset jobs on the other folder. Automation includes upgraded AVT remote ink and Baldwin Vision auto register.
Using an engineered value-added approach to preplanning, manufacturing, logistics, installation, mechanical and electrical, imPRESSions Worldwide has worked tirelessly to ensure that the pressline is functioning properly.
