The shop provides commercial and label printing services to the food, beverage and auto parts markets.

Adding diecutting and folding/gluing allows Delta to offer customers a single location and point of contact for all of their printing, finishing and packaging requirements. The new diecutter handles lightweight papers and can cut materials from 0.004𔂾.160˝ in thickness. It also features a built-in stripping station, which eliminates the need for hand stripping of the finished diecuts.

New Stitcher Helps Increase Versatility

ATLANTA—Installing a Muller Martini PrimaPlus SB saddle
stitcher has helped Geographics Inc. increase its capabilities and responsiveness to customers.

The unit features selective binding capability, as well as AMRYS automatic makeready. It was configured at the printer with six horizontal pockets with stream feeders, four horizontal pockets for manual feeding, one cover folder feeder and one card folder feeder. It’s also equipped with Asir 3 automatic signature image recognition.

“We added the Muller Martini PrimaPlus so we could ink-jet addresses as we stitch, plus automatically insert reply cards and blow in other items,” says Ray Weidele, plant manager. “Previously, this required additional operations in our fulfillment department.”

Stitcher Meets the Need for Speed

MINNEAPOLIS—Japs-Olson has installed a Goss Pacesetter 2200 saddlestitcher in its production facility. The unit can stitch up to 22,000 booklets per hour and has inside/outside addressing capability.

The 2200 is designed to run continuously with minimal downtime, and is the fifth one for Japs-Olson as it meets growing customer demand for booklets.

“The Pacesetter 2200 is another significant improvement we’ve made in our finishing capabilities,” says Japs-Olson CEO Mike Beddor. “It increases our speed and gives us additional versatility to stitch a variety of booklet formats. With the 2200, we can run a maximum of four stitcher heads at a time.”
