The Finish Line

Don has worked in technical support, sales, engineering, and management during a career in both the commercial offset and digital finishing sectors. He is the North American representative for IBIS Bindery Systems, Ltd. of The United Kingdom.

Way back in 2012, I wrote a blog about vision systems in the bindery. Well, it’s late 2016, and I’m feeling this needs a refresh. If I could name one technology that wasn’t around in finishing 30 years ago, but is now (in a big way), it would be machine vision.

We see tons of packaging in retail every day, but luxury packaging is a different breed.

In the second part of "A Guide to Buying Digital Finishing Systems," Don Piontek continues to share his experience to help you make the best finishing decision for your operation. In part two, he focuses on two key questions: when should you choose in-line versus off-line? And, how much automation do you need?
