Schibsted Trykk Boosts its Oslo Printing Plant with DCOS Closed-Loop Inspection System

Press release from the issuing company

Kinna – In the middle of the blooming area of Nydalen in Oslo where new apartment buildings, stores, supermarkets, hotels and office buildings are constantly being developed, one of northern Europe’s largest printing facilities is still an impressive landmark. With twenty-two Goss Colorliner 80S towers and five Quad-Former folders, Schibsted Trykk has the largest printing press in the Nordics. Today three folders and 12 towers are in daily use, producing around 4.5 million copes every week.

In the continuous strive to increase productivity and reduce cost of consumables, Schibsted Trykk decided in 2019 to take a closer look at upgrading its press with closed-loop density control. Just before Christmas last year, Schibsted decided DCOS would be their best choice of partner for the project.

“We have high ambitions with this investment and DCOS has appeared to be the best fit for us to reach our set goals. DCOS has a huge install base and we have got nothing but positive feedback from other DCOS users and the ROI is well within our expectation”, says Bjarne Andersen, CEO Schibsted Trykk.

DCOS will install its proven concept of a complete Print Inspection System (density, color register and cut-off) on one section plus Digital Presetting across twelve towers. The press has Goss Digital Inking System (Page Packs) and the project involves a partial retrofit of existing Honeywell Digital Inking control system.

Patrik Martinsson, Sales Manager at DCOS adds, “I´m very pleased we have been awarded this project by Bjarne and his team, we will make sure this becomes a success. This order also marks the seventh consecutive Inspection System order in Norway won by DCOS, a fact that gives us even more motivation to continue doing our utmost to find solutions that make our customer more productive”.

Installation is ongoing and will be completed in June.
