Newspapers remain one of the most reliable and credible sources of information. In many regions of the world, particularly in India, newspaper printing is steadily growing. In fact, India is the fastest developing paper market globally and is expected to grow more than 4% per annum until 2030.1
Despite growth potential, newspaper printers struggle with competing news sources. It is imperative that presses run at peak performance levels in order to stay in stride with the speed at which the public acquires information.
Janaka Rathnakumara, COO, Wijeya Newspaper also notes that “newspaper printing has become a game of faster production because runs are becoming shorter. To meet fast production you have to maintain your printing press.”
Due to shorter runs, printers are under pressure to achieve proper register quickly. This is because shorter runs means more job changes, startups, and make-readies. With the potential for waste at a greater level, automated technology such as MultiCam® TRIM is vital to maximizing press efficiency.
