The Windsor (Ontario) Star in Canada tapped Harland Simon for an upgrade of its postpress equipment.

The Postmedia Network-owned Star has grown its inserting business significantly prompting the upgrade of aging and obsolete controls, the publisher said.

The project entails replacement of all of the publisher’s ICON controls, legacy drives and obsolete PLCs on two NP630 inserters, a GSN controller, Sunspark interface machine, Heidelberg management systems and in-house Insert Controller. Harland Simon is deploying its InsertNet and MMS software, combined with off-the-shelf Allen-Bradley and standard PC hardware.

“This is an exciting time for the Star’s packaging department,” Doug Shillington, director of production, said in a statement. “The removal of a 16-head MP630 from our sister paper in Ottawa … will allow us to expand our two current lines to meet our client demands and improve efficiencies.”
