DCOS to reconfigure press for Sweden’s MittMedia
Sweden-based DCOS won a contract to reconfigure an 11-tower Goss Magnum for Sweden’s MittMedia Print, a newspaper producer in the Swedish midlands. The job involves moving, reconfiguring and upgrading the drive and control system, including a new closed-loop density, register and cut-off control system. The Goss Magnum is located in Ornskoldsvik, but will be moved to a consolidated plant in Falun. A plant in Gavle was closed as part of the consolidation.
The new press configuration will be ten towers and one folder. DCOS, together with its sister company Tensor, will carry out the dis- mantling, reconfiguration, reinstallation and commissioning. Other existing stand-alone systems will be fully integrated to the new press control-system. The existing QTI register system will be replaced by twenty CRC4 closed-loop density, register and fan-out cameras. The folder will be equipped with ten PCT4 cut-off cameras.
Dismantling started in August, and the job should be done by January 2019. This will be the largest closed-loop density installation in Sweden, DCOS says.
