Helsingin Sanomat, Nordics biggest newspaper and long time Tolerans customer, converted their broadsheet newspaper to a stitched tabloid on the 8th of January.
When converting to a tabloid newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat decided to upgrade their existing stitching capability to the latest technology from Tolerans, Speedliner 2.0. Tolerans has delivered and installed eight ribbon stitchers in two manroland Colorman printing presses.
Reliability and quality in combination with straightforward installation and ease of maintenance were behind their decision to choose Tolerans.
Advanced requirements for in-line stitching
“The requirement for quality from Helsingin Sanomat was extraordinary. Our new Speedliner 2.0 technology meet those requirements for advanced customers like Helsingin Sanomat,” says Jan Melin, CEO at Tolerans.
“Helsingin Sanomat says they are very pleased with the performance of the new stitchers. The installation was completed on time and the whole production process went according to schedule.
Thanks to the co-operation between Helsingin Sanomat and Tolerans on every detail of project planning, the installation and commissioning was achieved on time."
Success for SPEEDLINER® 2.0 continues
With Speedliner 2.0, which launched in 2010, Tolerans has further strengthened their position as the world leader in in-line stitching.
“We have put a lot of effort into developing a system in which it is easy to change wear and spare parts without manual adjustments. With our new control system, the stitchers are even easier to operate. The new graphical user interface is very user friendly and intuitive. This is to ensure a worry free stitching process,” says Jan Melin.
