Centre d’Impression Lausanne, a print center of the Tamedia group in Switzerland, is turning to ABB for a press control retrofit of its Wifag evolution 371 press.
CIL prints various Tamedia products for the French-speaking part of Switzerland including well-known titles such as 24 heures.
The Wifag press consists of five printing towers, two folders and six reelstands. The scope of the order includes the replacement of the control systems on two printing towers and two reelstands and also new section control systems.
The new systems supplied by Switzerland-based ABB are based on its AC500 PLC and will be commissioned without taking the press out of production. The commissioning is scheduled to begin in October of this year
