New Ferag UniDrum gatherer-stitcher technology at Senefelder Misset in Holland is producing magazine volumes that would typically two conventional machines.
The company produces magazines with circulations between 10,000 and 180,000 copies and paginations between 60 and 132 on 16 and 72-page heatset presses.
The UniDrum system has fast PreTronic CV presets and production speeds of 40,000 cph.
Chief executive Ronald van Rossum says feasibility studies begun in March 2012 led to installation last July. The inline process includes three-side trimming in a single-rotor SNT-50 drum.
