Automated Production Facilities
4 High Speed Colour Presses, including Automate Reel Loading
Completed in 1993, Queensland Newspaper’s Printing Plant at Murarrie represented a state of the art facility designed to take advantage of highly automated production facilities available from new printing plant technology.
The facility was built to accommodate four high speed colour presses each capable of producing 80,000 newspapers per hour and incorporated automated reel handling, inserts and dispatch technology.
The automated plant required construction of the press table and reel loading areas to extremely tight construction tolerances. Conditioned air within critical areas of the facility likewise needed to meet demanding temperature and humidity specifications.
