Mediaworks-PLT Invests in Two FlexLiners for Automatic Inserting
The newspaper producer Pannon Lapok Társasága (PLT) as a part of Mediaworks Group located in the Hungarian town of Veszprem is investing in two Muller Martini FlexLiner inserting systems to handle its increasing insert volume.
PLT, which was recently acquired by Mediaworks Hungary Zrt., Hungary’s largest private newspaper group, prints several local and national daily newspapers in tabloid and broadsheet format with a total average run size of some 300,000 copies per day. At present the company still manually inserts the ever growing volume of inserts and preprinted sections. To boost the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of its production, the Hungarian printing plant is investing in two FlexLiner 3 in 1 inserting systems with a NewsStack compensating stacker and L mini feeders for automatic main-section feeding.

Mediaworks-PLT chose the Muller Martini solution not only because the FlexLiner is highly flexible in terms of the formats that can be processed, but also because main sections can be opened with or without a low folio lap. The new systems will be delivered at the end of the year and commissioned early next year.
