But­ler Ea­gle to up­grade press

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

The But­ler Ea­gle (Pennsylvania) is get­ting a sec­ond-phase con­trols up­grade to a Goss Uni­liner press. Har­land Si­mon will do the up­grade, which will in­volve re­plac­ing three Ro­toVi­sion PCs and two-drive Con­trolLogix PLCs to re­move ob­so­lete com­po­nents and fu­ture-proof the press, a news re­lease says. Screens will be re­placed with ad­di­tional Prima PressNet con­trol screens, mean­ing all press con­trol func­tions can be ac­cessed via Har­land Si­mon touch screens. The Con­trolLogix pro­ces­sors in the press con­trol rack will also be up­graded along with the cen­tral main­te­nance and di­ag­nos­tic ca­pa­bil­i­ties via RS Logix 500 soft­ware ( by Allen-Bradley) to al­low quick fault find­ing and max­i­mize up­time.

The up­grade brings But­ler Ea­gle’s con- trol sys­tems up to the lat­est stan­dards.

In­stal­la­tion was set for Septem­ber this year. The ex­ist­ing sys­tem will re­main op­er­a­tional un­til the new equip­ment has been com­mis­sioned.

The up­grade has also been done at Ad­vance Web Off­set (Cal­i­for­nia), Tri­buneRe­view, (Pennsylvania), En­gle Print­ing (Pennsylvania) and the Ari­zona Republic.
