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.
