Worzalla Publishing Equips Digital Book Printing Business with Eurobind 600 PUR and POLAR Cutter
Worzalla Publishing reports the purchase of a Eurobind 600 PUR binder and POLAR 66 guillotine cutter to support its new digital book printing operation, co-located with the company’s main facility in Stevens Point, WI.
“We are responding to customer demand for ultra-short-run books in quantities as low as 10-20 copies,” said Vice President of Operations Kris Koch. “We chose the Eurobind’s PUR glue option to address any stock or toner-based issues associated with digitally printed output.” Likewise, the programmable, easy-to-operate POLAR is specially designed for the needs of the digital printing businesses.
Founded in 1892, Worzalla Publishing today is a state-of-the-art, full-service, book-manufacturing company. Its 300,000-squre-foot plant in Stevens Point is dedicated to the printing and binding of hard- and softcover books. The 100 percent employee-owned company has a staff of 280.
Ry-Gan Printing Chooses New USA B20 Stahlfolder for Reliability, Ready Access to Service
Ry-Gan Printing in Rochester, NY, recently added a new USA B20 2-station, pile-fed Stahlfolder from Heidelberg. The new folder, which replaces an aging Stahl, is notable for its more compact size and improved ease-of-use, said company president Craig Schinsing.
“We bought another Stahlfolder for its reliability, as well as for the assurance that if a problem arises, Heidelberg service will be able to help resolve it,” he said.
Ry-Gan has been a general commercial printer to the trade for more than a quarter of a century. In addition to the new folder, the company relies on an all-Heidelberg pressroom lineup of Speedmaster SM 52 and SM 74 presses; Prinect CtP prepress workflow driving a Suprasetter A75 thermal platesetter; and a full-service bindery equipped with POLAR guillotine cutters. The company, which employs a staff of 10, currently is evaluating the purchase of an additional new Heidelberg press.
