LWG works for several papers
Pennsylvania- based LW Graphic Systems has done several jobs recently for major papers.
For the Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer, the company replaced all worn TTR track curves on two conveyors, each approximately 300 meters long. LWG also supplied 600 meters of factory rebuilt TTR Chain with grippers, eight new reverse sprockets ( large-cast sprocket driving the TTR chain) and new gripper closing cam assemblies.
At The Dallas Morning News, LWG removed two existing TTR pickup stations and installed two factory rebuilt pickup stations. The stations were upgraded with new LWG PLC controls.
At The Avalanche Journal, in Lubbock, Texas, LWG was contracted in a press replacement project.
For The Boston Globe, LWG was hired to engineer, supply, install and commission five factory rebuilt TTR systems and three belt systems to four presses in a new facility.
Each system consists of a new double out (5-way) folder connection, factory rebuilt equipment such as pick-up station, delivery station (end station), two stacker infeeds, accessories such as releases, copy detector and paster detectors. All new conveyor track and factory rebuilt TTR chain and grippers are installed. New LWG PLC-based controls for the conveyor and stacker infeeds were included. Three of the presses will be equipped with a belt conveyor on the secondary delivery of the folder.
