Automation gets to the heart of Sanoma's waste worries

Two Sanoma print sites in Finland have cut waste and boosted quality with new automation systems.

Jorma Kyrö, managing director of Sanomala Oy in Vantaa says an repeat order with QI Press Controls and EAE was driven firstly by a desire to reduce waste and saw 'out of image' measurements as the best way to achieve this. "We need to be sure we always have the most innovative solution in use," he says. A previous project with EAE had also been "very convincing" in terms of the way operating systems were renewed.

Executives also visited De Persgroep in Amsterdam to see a similar system. "This installation is very important to us and we believe it will improve our production and serve our customers better," says Kyrö.

Some 24 IDS-3D cameras for colour and register control and 29 mRC-3D cameras for cut-off control - plus access to the IQM analysis programme - make up the all-new installation at Sanomala Oy, while Savon Paino Oy in Varkaus gets a 13-camera register and cut-off control system. The plants print about 250,000 copies of flagship national daily Helsingin Sanomat.
