Inserting Equipment Comes to the Desert
CARSON CITY, NV—Tahoe-Carson Area Newspapers will add a new Goss NP632 inserting system in early 2005 to meet increasing insert volume and complexity requirements. The affiliate of Swift Newspapers publishes seven newspaper titles.
The new Goss NP632 inserter system will include 22 hoppers and be equipped for single- or dual-delivery. Goss will supply a NP200 press gripper, NP404 online inserting system and its Omnizone supervisory controls.
The Goss NP632 system will address evolving inserting requirements for the seven titles. In addition to increasing advertising supplement volumes and demands for targeted zoning, the publisher regularly inserts several common sections into multiple papers.
Brooklyn Park, MN-based Competitive Folding, a division of International Packaging and a specialist in the production of coupons, inserts and outserts for major consumer products manufacturers, recently upgraded its miniature folding capabilities with the acquisition of a Vijuk-G&K V-14 SAF 6/6 folder.
