Print forum focuses on new technologies THE annual Single Width Users Group (SWUG) confer- ence looks set to be an old fashioned hoedown for news- paper printers. It will be held in the country music capital of Australia, Tam- worth, from March 19. SWUG president and CEO of Print and Logistics at Fairfax Media, Bob Lockley, said: “It’s a bit of everything this year, from environmental sustainability to OH&S, as well as a solid line up of inter- national speakers.” The conference is designed for hands-on production staff who work on single-width, rath- er than double-width presses. It is a forum where buyers and suppliers can discuss common problems and share knowledge to improve the print quality of newspapers. International speakers include Chuck Ramsey, of Chicago, who will discuss U S trends and innovations. Collie Print Trust is spon- soring the travels of Wim Maes, of Belgium, who will speak about the waterless offset press. New Zealand’s Raja Shakraparti will provide a case study on his press in Auckland. Issues around environ- mental sustainability will be covered by consultant Philip Lawrence. Peter Kirwan, of Goss Inter- national, said: “I am going to speak about the new technical developments at Goss, par- ticularly Triliner technology and what it offers for flexible, new formats.” Questions around how to set up pre-press to match your press, plus women in the industry, will be addressed. Last year’s apprentice of the year winners will give their reports from their tour of print presses on the east coast of Australia. Hesem Noureddine from Rural Press, Murray Bridge in South Australia, is one of three winners who will talk at the conference. “I am from a small press, so going around to all the big city presses was amazing, I was shocked at what I saw,” he said. The Kodak welcoming night will be country-music inspired. On Saturday, del- egates will tour the Tamworth Print Centre, which prints the Northern Daily Leader. At the Goss presentation night, the Apprentice of the Year will be announced as well as a $20,000 Leadership Scholarship.

Goss signs China deal SING Tao News Corporation, publisher of Headline Daily, will install an additional Goss Uniliner four-high tower to expand the capacity of an existing Uniliner press. Ship- ment of the press extension was scheduled for last month. The new tower for Sing Tao is specified to match the current 578 mm cut-off press, resulting in a 16-unit press. Once installation is complete, it will have running speeds of up to 80,000 copies per hour. Launched in July 2005, Headline Daily is now Hong Kong’s number one free newspaper with the largest circulation in the region. In 2007 Sing Tao ordered two new Uniliner presses with a combined total of 32 units from Goss International. With continuing circulation growth, the new tower will allow Sing Tao to match production capacity to demand and also increase pagination of the newspaper. Peter Kirwan, vice president of Asia Pacific newspaper sales at Goss International, comments: “The nature of the Uniliner press design allows us to expand press lines with minimal inconvenience and minimal downtime. It pro- vides some reassurance for businesses like Sing Tao that they can be flexible for the future and adapt to changing market conditions.” Sing Tao News Corporation Limited is a media corpora- tion listed on the main board of Hong Kong Stock Ex- change. Its principal activities comprise media operations including newspapers, maga- zines, recruitment media and other related businesses.
