Argus Press Installs Vijuk Folder
NILES, IL—The Argus Press, a division of Nationwide Graphics, recently installed a Vijuk G&K SVA 43 folder with MV-97 RTA outsert unit.
Gene Toepfer, president of The Argus Press, notes the addition of the specialized folding system enhances his company’s capabilities. “The new Vijuk RTA outsert folding system will impact clients in many positive ways,” he says. “First, it will reduce turnaround time due to its high speed and in-line gluing systems. Therefore, clients will receive their projects back quicker.
“Another important feature for clients is that this folding system can handle a broad range of papers, as well as the lightweight pharmaceutical stocks,” Toepfer adds. “With this feature, clients will be able to take advantage of a broader range of stocks for their projects, ultimately enhancing the effectiveness of their project.”
