Our trip to the NZ Herald!
As part of our communication inquiry we went on a trip to see the NZ Herald get printed. We were shown around the whole factory and saw the printing plates being made, the printing presses running, the quality checks being done, the stacking and packing of the papers and even saw robots in action! The robots are used to get the big rolled reams of paper to print on - they weigh over a ton so people cannot lift them! One of the robots was called Ricky which is AJ and Hiro's brothers names! It was really fun and interesting to see all the machines in action.
