Fin­nish me­dia group Kaakon Vi­estinta Oy has given Swe­den-based DCOS Print In­spec­tion Sys­tems an or­der for a closed-loop den­sity, reg­is­ter and cut-off sys­tem for its KBA A510 press, which dates to 1991.

Kaakon Vi­estinta has 800 em­ploy­ees and is the lead­ing news­pa­per group in south­east Fin­land. Kaakon Vi­estinta has merged its three pro­duc­tion sites into one print-pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Kou­vola, east of Helsinki.

With seven daily news­pa­pers and 21 week­lies and bi-week­lies, Kaakon Vi­estinta pro­duces about a mil­lion copies a week.

The DCOS cam­era tech­nol­ogy to be in­stalled on the press in­cludes 10 CRC4 den­sity and color reg­is­ter cam­eras and 18 PTC4 cut-off cam­eras. The Honey­well con­trol sys­tem will be partly retro­fit­ted and all qual­ity func­tions will be con­trolled by DCOS, in­clud­ing the spray damp­en­ing sys­tem.

“Kaakon Vi­estinta has gone through some changes over the last year, merg­ing three print shops into one cen­tral­ized fa­cil­ity. We are very proud to be part of their fu­ture and suc­cess. This project per­fectly sym­bol­izes our ca­pa­bil­i­ties of pro­vid­ing com­plete au­to­ma­tion so­lu­tions for print­ing presses, com­bin­ing retro­fit with pro­duc­tiv­ity up­grades,” said Mat­tias An­der­s­son, CEO of DCOS Swe­den.
