Further Major PECOM-Upgrade for Thairath Daily

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Almost five years after one of the most comprehensive service upgrades for the printing industry worldwide, the media company Vacharaphol Co. Ltd. in Bangkok again orders another major PECOM upgrade for the production of their Thairath Daily Newspaper. 

The contract has been signed in June 2015 and the installation will already be finished in December 2015. The six GEOMAN presslines at Thairath have been installed in 1995 and have been upgraded to state-of-the-art from 2008 to 2010. The dimensions of the presslines are impressing: Thailand’s biggest daily newspaper is printed on 24 printing towers, with 36 reel splicers and 6 folders.

Latest Technology Avoids Shut-Downs and Shows New Perspectives 
The lately ordered comprehensive upgrade consists of different packages for the PECOM control system, including a modern operating surface and control desk computers, touch screens and consoles, the PECOM Press Manager Server (PPM) including a Hot-Stand-By-Backup-Server, which, in case of errors, immediately takes over from PPM, and Press Monitor 2. This also guarantees highest production security.

Press Monitor 2 – The Long-Term-Memory for Your Press 
The production is controlled and analyzed by the Press Monitor 2, which also provides master data for process optimization, the basis of the economical success of a printing house. With the Press Monitor 2, which is connected to the pre-press, the press and the post-press, the printer is able to monitor the current status of the production process at every time. As a central database, the Press Monitor 2 saves and reports all relevant production data. Due to this, reports can be created easily, what enables an ideal control of the operational workflow and the processes.  

SoftProof-System – For a Perfect Illustration and a Fast Coordination 
The proof system from manroland web systems provides content-binding proofs directly to the control desk of the GEOMAN. This enables an efficient production and highest printing quality and significantly reduces waste rates. 

„We are very proud about the trust of Vacharaphol Co. Ltd. in manroland web systems again and are definitely going to make our highest efforts to fulfil the expectations of our customer and to contribute to the success of Vacharaphol Co. Ltd.“, Gebhard Sutter, Service Project Manager at manroland web systems, states.

Thairath Daily Newspaper is operated by Vacharaphol Co., Ltd., a family owned media company. Founded in 1950 by Mr. Kamphol Vacharaphol, Thairath Daily is the largest newspaper in Thailand with an average circulation of about 1 Million copies per day.
