Fayetteville (North Carolina) Observer: The Network provided a ten-station SLS1000 quarter-fold inserter to handle a very large insert package of more than 160 broadsheet pages.
First live production for Sunday Completes for the West Lebanon (NH) Valley News, running on a newly-installed SLS 1000. Running speed was an impressive 11,600, limited only by the need to manually count carrier keys on the tie-lines. It was the also first time they had ever used hopperloaders.
A large Quipp/Newstech inserter was moved from Waco, Texas to ECM Publishers in Minnesota. The Network's associates installed and commissioned the machine, and provided operational training for the staff. Here's the first production run.
Watch these "before" and "after" videos at the Cortez (CO) Journal. Notice the increased speed and improved quality in the "after" video, as the machine runs for 7 minutes straight!
This is an inserter we moved from Topeka, Kansas to The Courier in Russellville, Arkansas. This was the Discovery (first) production.
A sampling of our projects . . .
Two SLS1000 inserters were removed from Bloomington, Illinois, and reinstalled in Decatur, Illinois at the Herald-Review. Watch the video to see the first production run after the installation was completed.
This SLS 1000 was relocated from Exton, PA to the Troy Record in New York. Parts of it had to be brought in through a third-floor window! You see the impressive running results here, at 20K/hour, a huge step up from what they were able to achieve on their old 227 machines.
At the Daily Herald (part of Paddock Publications) in Schaumberg, Illinois, our associates designed and fabricated new cams and openers for their three Heidelberg 630s to accommodate their web-width reduction. The Network also provided operational training, and you can see the smooth-running results here.
