Electronic Design Group (EDG) has a contract to upgrade one press of DC drives and supervisors and 18 RTPs on three presses at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution print facility.

EDG has previously upgraded two of AJC’s presses with new DC drives and a supervisor. EDG will apply the same solution on the third press. The RTP upgrade modernizes the existing RTPs and also will tackle the removal of the mechanical PIV infeed and replace it with a readily available AC drive and motor.

Canada-based EDG’s modernization of TKS Static Belt RTPs is a comprehensive solution that includes the splice control and the tension control system, EDG says.
