A WRH WALTER REIST HOLDING AG COMPANY SYDNEY OFFICE ALEXANDRIA, NSW 2015, PHONE +61 2 8337 9777, www.ferag-australia.com MELBOURNE OFFICE DINGLEY VILLAGE, VIC 3172, PHONE +61 3 9551 3988 PRODUCTION THE implementation of the proc- ess in the newspaper industry on both sides of the Tasman is finding increasing favour for its superior quality, decreased down- time and savings in overall print run costs. Guardian Print has grown quickly to establish itself as one of the major printers of commercial newsprint products in the South Island of New Zealand. In seeking to maintain this growth and in pursuit of its goal to continually improve the quality of the product and service provided to its customers, the company has installed a DGM single-width press into a custom-built printing plant in Ashburton. This large investment now pro- vides substantially more colour, speed and access to the latest cold- set web offset technology for the company's customers. For the past six months Guard- ian has been using a Kodak Trend- setter News 70 platesetter and Prinergy Evo workflow software with 100 per cent Staccato screen- ing for its 60 titles which include three daily newspapers -- Ashbur- ton Guardian, Timaru Herald and Oamaru Mail, as well as 20 weekly publications. Guardian Print has undertaken the ISO 9002 quality program and is now one of only two newspaper printing plants in Australasia to be ISO 9002 registered. One of its main criteria in switching to Stac- cato screening was the quality ad- vantages of finer screening. The Riverina Media Group, with a total of 12 mastheads under its umbrella and a usage of about 46,000 plates a year, has installed an entire Kodak solution includ- ing News Manager as its workflow software, along with Kodak chemi- cals and plates. Staccato screening was implemented in November last year and according to Greg Smythe, Group Operations Man- ager, the company has been ex- tremely impressed with the results. Sydney-based Torch Publish- ing produces four weekly news- papers with a total circulation of 207,000 as well as printing 15 to 20 other publications a week for out- side clients. The company operates two Ko- dak Trendsetter News devices -- a 50 and a 70 (the number indicates the number of plates produced per hour) with online Kodak proces- sors. A Nela vision punch/bender is connected via custom convey- ors and supports both plateset- ters, which currently produce ap- proximately 800 plates per week. Preps is used for imposition and Prinergy Workshop for workflow. For the past 14 months Torch has been using Staccato on the machines which have been cali- brated by Creo/Kodak for stochas- tic screening. Staccato screening revolutionises newspaper production
