He says the Compact 105 fits in very well with the other processes that the firm offers, including die stamping, UV coating, cutting, creasing, gluing and hand assembly.
Pile Turner Marks Polar’s 750th Sale
GLENDALE, CA—In 2003, Zarik Megerdichian, owner of 4Over Inc., purchased his first high-speed Polar cutter from Heidelberg. Since then, he invested in nine more Polar cutters. In 2008, after the opening of a new 4Over facility in Dayton, OH, Megerdichian installed six more.
This August, he purchased his first pile turner: a Polar PW-4 ABV. As luck would have it, 4Over’s pile turner purchase was also the 750th PW-4 ABV sold worldwide. In celebration of the milestone sale, 4Over was presented with a “Jubilee Certificate.”
“Our Polar cutters are running around the clock, and that’s one of the main reasons why the decision for this pile turner was made so fast,” Megerdichian says. “Previously, my people had to put a lot of labor into turning the piles.
“We also use the turning and airing functions of the pile turner for drying the sheets before backing up jobs,” he concludes. “With a workload of approximately 30 skids of paper each day, the pile turner saves us a lot of time and manpower.”
