Enhancing control and efficiency

The Charleston Post and Courier of South Carolina, USA, has experienced significant performance improvement since implementing a Goss enhancement programme which involved upgrading the reelstands of two Goss Metroliner presses comprising 10 units and seven half-decks. “We judged that, with a few efficiency improvements, our Metroliner presses get at least another 10 years of good service,” said Mickey Bella, president of the newspaper’s shared service division, “We were looking for improved paste performance and better overall tension control and we got precisely that.” According to Bella, with the presses regularly running at 92 - 96 percent capacity and only a few non-production hours each day, the company has also greatly benefitted from a sharp reduction in maintenance time.
