Even a decade and a half after commissioning, Muller Martini systems can be connected with the latest unit to enable customers to respond to current market requirements with the aid of an upgraded complete system. The CoLiner pre-gathering unit, for example, can be docked onto the NewsLiner newspaper inserting system.
That is precisely what has happened at the printing center of the Münchner Merkur tz media group in Munich. A first-generation NewsLiner with five feeders has been in operation at the main plant of the Bavarian newspaper publishing company in Dessauerstrasse since 2000. It was extended to include a CoLiner, which provides an additional six feeders, a few weeks ago. The complete system now has a total of eleven feeders, which means that the Munich-based media group is ideally equipped to handle the increase in insert volume that the company has experienced in recent years, especially with respect to advertising papers. “We can now process the various newspaper titles more quickly and with a higher degree of automation, making production more cost-effective. What’s more, we can also perform more insert splits than before,” says Managing Director Uwe Günther.
