Heidelberg Installs Raise Bar for Performance Across the Process

March 31, 2010
KENNESAW, GA—March 31, 2010—Heidelberg USA announces the following new product installations:
Moquin Press Adds Capacity with Easygluer 100

Moquin Press, an $11 million trade printer located in Belmont, Calif., reports the installation of an Easygluer 100 folder-gluer from Heidelberg to supplement the work performed by an aging, competitive folder-gluer. “Not only have we increased our capacity, but we’ve also cut down on makeready, becoming faster, more efficient, and 35 percent more productive,” said company president Greg Moquin. “The Easygluer is exceeding our expectations in every way.”
With the addition of the Easygluer 100, Moquin Press turns out high-quality straight-line, lockbottom and storybook cover cartons with ease, thanks in part to an optional blank alignment module that significantly reduces set-up times and improves folding results by precisely aligning the carton blanks. Among the benefits Moquin hopes to realize from these new efficiencies is the ability to drive increased business by driving down prices.
Moquin Press has furnished Bay Area printers, print brokers, in-house print shops and designers with specialty printing, die cutting, foil stamping and finishing capabilities since 1988. The company operates no fewer than three Speedmaster XL 105 presses, a 6-color Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 74 and a 4-color Heidelberg GTO, as well as three programmable POLAR cutters and two continuous-feed Stahlfolders. Ready access to service and parts is a given, Moquin confirms, terming Heidelberg Systemservice “the best there is.” Founded in 1985, Moquin Press employs a staff of 105.
Top productivity, low cost: Easygluer 100.

Texas State Department of Health Boosts Cutting Capability with POLAR 92 XT

The in-house print shop of the Texas Department of State Health Services in Austin, Texas produces all manner of health-themed printed materials intended for public consumption in quantities up to several million at a time. According to assistant print shop manager John Moses, the recent installation of a new high-speed POLAR 92 XT guillotine cutter with jogging unit, scale and lifts has greatly relieved the burden on cutter operators, who use it to fulfill all of the shop’s cutting needs from prepress media to finish trimming for brochures and booklets. The new machine replaces a pair of 25-year-old cutters that were increasingly unable to keep pace with the workload. The shop also retains an older model POLAR 115 machine.
