Morgana Finish for Digital Print Start-up
Absolute Digital Printers of Kendal, Cumbria has installed a range of equipment from Morgana Systems to finish digital output produced on a 5-colour Indigo. Absolute Digital, which opened its doors for business in May, is a start-up company founded by co-directors Malcolm Oates and Jon Wallbank, both of whom had previously worked in the pre-press section of one of Cumbria’s leading litho printers.
“We planned and researched the project for over a year” says Malcolm Oates. Having decided that the future lay in the production of quality short run colour work, we invested in the Indigo because of the extra quality we felt we would get from a liquid ink system.”
Coming from a pre-press background, Malcolm and Jon had only a scanty knowledge of finishing but having looked at what was available and consulted other digital printers, they decided to approach Morgana. “The word we were getting” Malcolm says “was that Morgana had developed products specially for this market and could supply a complete package. This suited us as we believe in strong suppliers with customer loyalty that goes both ways.”
Absolute Digital eventually purchased a Morgana DigiFold to perform the dual role of creasing and folding digital output and also bought a Morgana Junior folder for handling multi-page jobs that didn’t need pre-creasing. An EBA 551 programmatic guillotine and a Nagel Multinak FS stitcher completed the package.
“We have been pleased both with the performance of the equipment and its ease of set-up” comments Jon Wallbank. “We felt in control of things after just a couple of days’ training and we are getting all the support we need from Morgana.”
