By: E&P Staff K&M Newspaper Services of Monroe, N.Y., announced that the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser is the first buyer of the shaftless Titan G60 inserting system. The 58,429-circulation (48,389 weekdays) Gannett daily will install a 30-station G60 with dual gripper deliveries and a dual on-line system.
The inserter uses a Miracom control system and incorporates the same servo technology that K&M uses on its Titan G3. Unlike the G3, however, the G60 can be expanded from eight hoppers to as many as 62, in four-hopper increments.
K&M's other recent orders and installations include: The Independent in Grand Isle, Neb. (remanufactured 1472 with dual-format pockets and gripper delivery system); The Examiner in Alexandria, Va. (remanufactured 1472 and K-Track press conveyor); the Athens (Ga.) Banner Herald (Titan G3 with gripper delivery conveyor); La Opinion in Los Angeles (Titan G3 and remanufactured NP630); The Maui (Hawaii) News, The Morning Journal in Lisbon, Ohio, the Cape Coral (Fla.) Daily Breeze, and The Daily News Journal in Murfreesboro, Tenn. (one remanufactured 1472 each); The Washington Times and the Columbus (Ga.) Ledger-Enquirer (one remanufactured 1372 each); The Herald News in Fall River, Mass. (K-Track press conveyor); the Sioux City (Iowa) Journal and the Santa Fe New Mexican (K-Track conveyor and bundle-distribution equipment).
