A group of Bourne Grammar School students enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of Warners Midlands’ state-of-the-art printing facility in the town.
The students, who are studying A Level Systems & Control and Computing, were given “a fascinating insight into the different technical challenges that need to be overcome in order to produce consistently high-quality printed media”, according to assistant headteacher and subject leader Stephen Brown.
He said: “It was explained that their machinery draws reels of paper weighing over a tonne through the printing machinery at speeds of up to 60mph – quite different to the printers seen at home and in school!”
Marketing manager Michael Warner led the tour of the largely-automated factory. The students described it as an “enlightening experience”.
