Communications Provider Converts More Than 75% of Programs to Inkjet Print Production
SCREEN Americas announces the installation of a second Truepress Jet520HD to Wolverine Solutions Group of Detroit, Michigan. The company purchased an identical press in 2016. The recent investment afforded Wolverine Solutions Group the opportunity to remodel 25,000 of its 200,000-square-foot facility into a state-of-the-art climate-controlled room built for optimized productivity.
The two SCREEN press lines, which now account for 75 percent of Wolverine’s total output, are arranged perpendicular to each other in an L configuration providing streamlined material handling and operator efficiency. While one Truepress Jet520HD is typically reserved for transactional work, the other is used for direct marketing programs involving oversized postcards and self-mailers printed on heavy coated stock. The identical configurations between the units allow the Michigan-based printer to transfer applications from one press to the other if necessary or double its throughput for longer runs. As a result of its increased agility, the company has downsized inventory and eliminated several toner-based presses.
Darryl English, president of Wolverine Solutions Group, credits the company’s success to the Truepress Jet520HD’s speed, image quality and ability to print on multiple substrates. Continuous roll-fed inkjet technology has also allowed the printer to completely eliminate the need for preprinted shells. “This has resulted in tremendous gains in efficiency that would have otherwise been lost through the management of preprinted forms,” said English. “SCREEN allows us to produce output more quickly and retain full control of every project from start to finish. This is key since we live in an on-demand world where speed-to-market remains the most important performance indicator to focus on.”
Founded in 1980, Wolverine Solutions Group serves highly regulated industries including healthcare, manufacturing, finance, government and insurance. A daily output of more than one million impressions is performed by 140 employees covering three shifts per day, seven days per week.
