All Color Business Specialties Boosts Capacity with New Folding System
FARMINGDALE, NY—All Color Business Specialties, a high-volume wholesale printer to the local and regional trade, has added a Heidelberg Stahlfolder TH-66 buckle-plate folder with feeder and stream delivery.
According to All Color owner Billy Bogue, the new folder has given his company the ability to score and fold larger print jobs, such as oblongs, newsletters and pamphlets at high speeds.
"The machine has not stopped running since it was installed," says Bogue, who adds that his operators especially like the folder's Airstream register table that enables precise sheet alignment without marking.
