For the automation of its postpress line at the printing plant in Saint-Hyacinthe, TC Transcontinental decides again for Gämmerler

(PresseBox) ( Geretsried-Gelting, )
TC Transcontinental and Gämmerler have been partnering strategically and collaboratively for over 20 years. This partnership continues with the recent order received for a fully automated flexible postpress system meeting the constantly changing production requirements of a GOSS 700 and a KBA 618 press at the Saint-Hyacinthe plant in Quebec, Canada, which specializes in Retail Flyer production.

Up to now, the majority of product handling has been done manually in a 24/7 operation and is mainly the bundle handling after the compensating stacker. With this investment, utilizing Gammerler's fully automated postpress process, the printed products leaving the press deliveries will be conveyed directly next to the press hall by means of seven FS 260 overhead conveying systems. There seven KL 560 compensating stackers with servo ejector, blocking modules and optional strapping units are building the bundles. Two PR 460 type robots will then palletize the bundles in accordance to a programmable, retrievable pallet pattern. The machines dispose of an automatically adjustable double gripper, allowing to place extra large format bundles on the pallet. Slip sheets from a separate slip sheet feeder optimize the stability of the loaded pallet. Finally, an automatic pallet transport system moves the loaded pallets towards the unitizer. The Gämmerler Logistic System will control the entire palletizing process.

James Aziz, Senior Vice President Finance and Manufacturing Efficiency, explains the reason of TC Transcontinental's decision for Gämmerler as follows: "For over 20 years we have been successfully partnering with Gämmerler, and during this period, we have progressively made considerable updates enabling automating our postpress process at various sites. For this latest project in Saint-Hyacinthe, Gämmerler has again demonstrated its competencies by developing a highly flexible and customized solution, ensuring our operations are automated at the highest levels".

Jörg Westphal, Managing Director of Gämmerler GmbH, emphasizes: "We are happy to strengthen our cooperation with this important order. It confirms the appreciation of our products, many of which have been in operation continuously for more than 20 years!"
