The RollStream precollecting system is equipped with a total of ten hoppers and caters for the trend towards zoned inserting.

24.09.11 - The OSTSEE-ZEITUNG has upgraded its mailroom with Ferag technology and in so doing has been able to reduce the number of mailroom lines from three down to one. In addition, it has extended its inserting options by installing an MSD2 Compact inserting drum combined with the RollStream precollecting system.

The OSTSEE-ZEITUNG is a regional daily newspaper in the northeastern federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is distributed along Germany’s Baltic coast, and with 10 local editions, the OSTSEE-ZEITUNG is the highest circulation daily newspaper in the region. It has been 100% owned by the Lübecker Nachrichten since 2009.

In 2010, an upgrade of the OSTSEE-ZEITUNG mailroom was on the agenda. The official goal was to simplify sequences while boosting quality and flexibility. By installing the MSD2 Compact inserting drum in combination with the RollStream precollecting system, it was possible to make the layout much more straightforward and reduce the number of lines from three down to one. As a result, the outlay on personnel in the mailroom has been cut back and efficiency increased.

The RollStream precollecting system is equipped with a total of ten hoppers and thus caters for the trend towards zoned inserting. The MSD2-C inserting drum inserts products offline into the preprints and the main products at a maximum speed of 40,000 copies an hour. This enables the OSTSEE-ZEITUNG to boost the appeal of its 10 local editions and manage the growing volume of inserts more efficiently.

With the new mailroom, the OSTSEE-ZEITUNG also has secured itself options for the production of semi-commercials and can later integrate modules for stitching and trimming, as well as the application of cards, into the mailroom line.
