Sun Community News and Printing in Elizabethtown, New York, installed ProImage NewsWay Press Register software on its 1960s Goss Community Press.
The 18,000 square-foot production facility produces seven targeted distribution newspapers throughout northeastern New York State as well as a quarterly lifestyle magazine.
Since its purchase in the early 1960s, the four-unit Goss Community Press has been upgraded with a folder and C unit and additional SC units. The press now operates with four stacked units and nine mono units with an SC and SSC folders.
The addition of ProImage NewsWay Press Register software allows the company to correct mis-registration on the printing press without physically touching or modifying the press.
Sun Community has seen reduced waste, fewer startups and recovery from roll changes, according to Bill Coats, operations manager of Sun Community.
“We also see reduction in time spent on initial roll up,” Coats said. “Our registration is exponentially better than it was previously.”
