Are Your Press Conveyors and Mailroom Prepared for 2019—and Beyond?

Another year is quickly coming to a close, and as operating budgets are being reviewed and finalized, it’s a good time to assess whether your press conveyance and mailroom equipment is prepared to protect your investment in “ink on paper.” I’m pleased to say that a number of newspapers did just that in 2018, upgrading their inserters and conveyors, as well as related operating systems. Here is a quick snapshot of some of those investments:

 

SLS3000 Windows 10 Upgrade

  • The Advocate, Baton Rouge, LA
  • Kansas City Star, Kansas City, MO

 

Other WinLincs Upgrades

  • Washington Post – Springfield, VA
  • Forum Printing – Duluth, MN
  • NPG Printing – St. Joseph, MO
  • Record Searchlight – Redding, CA

 

Newsgrip Conveyor Systems (Newsgrip1, A) Mechanical & Electronic Upgrade

  • Knoxville News Sentinel, Knoxville, TN (M & E)
  • Naples Daily News, Naples, FL (E)
  • Houston Chronicle (M & E)
  • Detroit Newspapers (M)

 

SLS2000 Upgrades (Gripper Conveyor, Repair System, Opening Station)

  • New York Times, NY
  • Gannett, Greenville, NC

The intent of these organizations is clear: to thrive within a new, highly centralized business model that’s dependent as never before on the performance and reliability of legacy presses and mailroom systems.
