First System 2000S Bookletmaker installed
(Little Rock Document Services)
Founded in 1994, Little Rock Document Services, Calgary, Canada, was seeking a solution to its bookletmaking needs.
Michael Steele, Co-owner of Sydney Stone, the official Morgana Systems dealer for Canada, said: “Little Rock was quickly able to spot a system that offers great value for the price point. With a 30-sheet capacity, hybrid feeder, and square spine press inline, they are enabled to be very flexible in the work they accept.”
Little Rock Document Services installed a Morgana System 2000S bookletmaker iwith inline Square Spine Press technology and a Morgana CardXtra Plus. They became the first Canadian company to install the Morgana System 2000S bookletmaker with in-line Square Spine. The equipment was launched in September 2013 at the PRINT 13 tradeshow in Chicago. The automated booklet-making system can be used for both toner and lithographic production. It employs a 10-bin hybrid feeder with the ability to feed pre-collated sets, offset printed sets, or a combination of the two.
Morgana introduced its CardXtra Plus into the market four years ago as a fixed cartridge based card-cutting system able to handle a range of work.
The latest version of the System 2000S bookletmaker is on show at GRAPH EXPO 14 featuring a new high capacity dual bin feeder. This combination offers a flexible solution for a wide range of booklet types and sizes. The AF602 air assisted feeder has a capacity of up to 21". Pre-collated sets can be placed into both bins or covers can be placed into one bin when they need to be merged with collated sets. The heavy-duty bookletmaking section comes complete with stitching heads and the addition of the unique Morgana Squarefold option gives a professional perfect bound effect to the finished publication.
CardXtra Plus automates many of finishing tasks in one versatile cutting and creasing unit. Business cards are an important focus: with CardXtra Plus a printer can take 250 standard sized business cards and finish them in less than two minutes. A small job such as this would previously have needed something like 18 cuts on a guillotine, and an awful lot of time. With and digital printing unit and CardXtra Plus, printers can now offer business card production as a “while you wait” service.
