You may associate the word “purr” with your average cat.
But here at DCB the new Morgana 300XL PUR binder means we can bind books quickly, efficiently and on site for the first time – and it’s got us and our customers “purring” with satisfaction.
The DigiBook 300 XL Pro is an innovative book binding machine designed and built for the very latest market requirements. It is easy to use, even by non-specialised personnel, via a touch screen panel with icon graphics that allow the programming of all precision operations in just a few seconds, including startup and shutdown.
It can bind up to 300 books per hour and as Kevin Hart, production director at Aspen explained, it gives the company the opportunity to do everything under the same roof.
“It has made a massive difference. We deal with all of JCB’s books and we have never let them down on delivery and this has helped us to maintain our 100% record on customer satisfaction by bringing everything in-house.”
The printing of mesh and pull-up banners has always been made a lot more efficient thanks to a new OCE Colorado 1640 Wide Format Printer.
It is a 1.64m-wide roll-fed inkjet printer intended for signage and related work, offering both high image quality and high throughput – normally it’s a case of either/or with this class of printer. High levels of automation and a twin-roll feed support unattended running.
“We look at speed, production and cost. Looking at all three elements this is the best machine out there. It has also enabled DCB to retain its commitment to environmentally friendly working practices. It was a no-brainer because we have taken out four machines and hugely reduced our carbon footprint by replacing them with this one machine. It also helps the company to reduce the cost of producing business cards as it has an automated cutting system. What used to be a manual job by guillotine on a separate machine is now done at the click of a button.”
Kevin added: “We only bring the machines in when we have reached the level of work for them and these investments are already paying for themselves.”
