Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry News -

Nord­jyske Medier in Aal­borg, Den­mark, pub­lisher of news­pa­per ti­tles such as Nord­jyske Stift­sti­dende, has or­dered a retro­fit with ABB, a sup­plier of au­to­ma­tion so­lu­tions for the news­pa­per in­dus­try.

The or­der cov­ers three main ar­eas of work, ac­cord­ing to an ABB news re­lease.

The first part of the or­der en­tails the AMK drives on one tower of the Wifag OF370 press in Aal­borg be­ing re­placed with state-of-the-art ABB ACSM1 drives.

The sec­ond part of the or­der cov­ers the re­place­ment of ob­so­lete Wifag po­si­tion­ing sys­tems on the same print­ing tower. The re­place­ment ABB sys­tem, APOS, is based on ABB’s Ad­vant Con­troller AC500 PLC.

The third part of the or­der cov­ers up­grades to the four ex­ist­ing con­trol con­soles used for op­er­at­ing the presses at Aal­borg. The new PC hard­ware and ap­pli­ca­tion soft­ware will move Nord­jyske Medier to the lat­est touch­screen­com­pat­i­ble ver­sion of ABB’s MPS Con­trol Con­sole.
