A big print house in a small city
24.01.2014Volokolamsk is one of the oldest cities of the Moscow region with the population of approximately 30 000 people, situated at the distance of 98 km from Moscow. Here in 1919 the first issue of the district newspaper “The Alsman Voice” came out. Not then but a long time after, establishment of the modern newspaper production facilities has started in the city.
“Volokolamsk Print House” has commenced replacing the old newspaper equipment as from March 2009 when it has bought the first printing press CityLine Express from the company Vneshmaltigraph, composed of: printing turret 4+4, 2 monosections, 2 roll loadings as well as a folder in scheme 1:2:2 with a third fold device. The problem was not a simple one – because of the insufficient height of the building premises deepening of the print house’ foundation by 60 cm was required. Despite the installation difficulties VMG engineers have managed this task successfully. This has become the first victory that has provided an impulse for the newspaper production’s further development. At the end of the year a second printing turret 4+4 has been put into operation which allowed producing 32-folder sheet format A3, in which 16 sides are in 4 and 16 in one colour. A year after in order to cope with the printing volume a decision was made to buy a stacker RS 24S-13. A new stacker has allowed the print house to withdraw from the manual collection of newspapers increasing the volume of production. The Print House has started receiving orders not just from its local town but also from the cities of Tver and Dmitrov for colour newspapers. Building of a new workshop and implementation of the modern newspaper technology have brought immediate results. In 2011 the “Volokolamsk print house” took the third place in the OPEN Professional Contest of Printing - “Sanat” in the nomination “The Best colour newspaper”. This was the well-deserved collective victory for all of the company, because receiving an award in the main contest nomination is a real honour. The print house has not stopped at this achievement. The initiative and energy of the factory management provide a steady stimulus to further development.
At the end of 2013 specialists of VMG Service Center installed a new equipment in the print house just a few days before the New Year. The composition includes: folder 2:2:2 with a device for the third fold and for the second parallel fold, 2 turret-type printing sections colour 4+4 and 2 roll loadings, located at 90 angle to the print press. The newly equipped newspaper complex CityLine Express now includes 4 turret-type printing sections 4+4, 2 printing sections 1+1, 5 roll loadings, one of which is double, 2 folders. In order to connect the print press to the line VMG engineers have installed 3 disconnecting sleeves on the main assembly shaft. Commenting on the increase in the production capacity the Print House Head, Ms. Lyubov Lavrushina, stated that the upgraded printing line CityLine Express is fully ready to receive multilane colour newspapers and now it is up to the editors to respond. Today the Print House prints about 70 newspapers processing of up to 200 tons of paper a month.
Lyubov Lavrushina has entered the history of Volokolamsk region as an ambitious and effective manager. And now it is safe to s say that new print house’ capacity has surely secured a place for the “Volokolamsk print house” in the list of the largest printing factories of Moscow region. And this is a huge victory.
