Laminating System Adds Durability for On-Demand Books, Manuals, Magazines
CAROL STREAM, IL—Copresco, a printer that specializes in digital on-demand publications, books and manuals for clients in the general business, printing trade, technical and insitutional fields, has installed a Protopic III-540 laminating system. Copresco's production staff investigated a number of varnish, UV and aqueous coating systems, but determined that lamination was a superior process, providing unmatched durability and resistance to scratches.
"The addition of this system increases our laminated book cover capacity and provides better control and faster turnaround of client's projects," says Copresco President and CEO Steve Johnson. A major application for Copresco is the lamination of perfect-bound books, a continually expanding market segment for the company's digital printing services.
