Kinna – In the past weekend the DCOS crew replaced the original drive and control system of the eight tower, single folder Tensor press at Amedia´s printing facility in Bodö, Norway. Two weeks of preparation cumulated in the silencing of the old systems from 2006 and the new drive and control system installed, tested and ready for Sunday production. Long days and hard work to meet the customers print schedule.
Pasi Ylikankaanpää who was the first DCOS technician on-site says; ”It has been a couple of intensive weeks of preparations and minor retrofits steps to put us in a position to carry out the main system switch in such a short time frame. Good planning is the key. It rewarding to see the result of the effort and see the first live print job hit the street on time”.
The press was also upgraded with a new DCOS closed-loop cut-off system for eight webs.
The first ever installation of DCOS Closed-loop system was in Norway back in 2007. This order marks the milestone for over 200 DCOS closed-loop cameras installed in Norway.
“I´m pleased we have completed the project and our drive and control system is now top modern. The project has been intensive but right on time, I´m very satisfied with the close co-operation with the team from DCOS. The closest printshop is 6 hours away so its an understatement to say we are very dependent on a modern supportable press control system”, says Trond Olsen, managing director Amedia Bodö.
