MORGANA SAVES FACE ON FOLDING
Leading London digital printer, Face Creative Services, has chosen Morgana equipment to finish output from its HP Indigo and Xeikon digital presses.
With a history going back to 1963, Face has evolved through many different types of pre-press operation before moving into digital print in 1997. Since then expansion has been rapid and the 40-strong company now operates two HP Indigo 3000 and two Xeikon A2 presses to produce a broad range of short run colour work on stocks up to 350 gsm.
“Like many companies in our situation,” explains Production Manager Colin Harding “we had problems initially with cracking and we purchased a Morgana AutoCreaser, which solved this on both ink and toner based systems. Folding, however, continued to be an issue as we found that conventional folders didn’t always give the best results and this problem wasn’t satisfactorily resolved until the installation of the DigiFold.”
Face Creative values the DigiFold not only because of its dual-functionality, with creasing and folding in a single unit, but also because its patented folding method has been designed specifically to avoid any marking or damage to digital output. The company now operates two AutoCreasers, the DigiFold and a Foldnak 8 bookletmaker that was also supplied by Morgana
