Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

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.
