Municipal Shop Transitions to a Digital Mindset
“This one, there is just no way around it,” he reports. “You cannot bypass anything. If their hands are in there, it doesn’t work.”
The shop has also added a Duplo DF-1000 folder to the mix, replacing an older Baum pile folder. Russell says this has allowed the shop to quickly set up short-run folding jobs.
A Fujipla Al-Meister ALM3220 automated laminator now easily laminates covers, cards and bookmarks for the shop’s customers. Russell has also brought in a Rhino-Tuff HD-7700 punch and a Graphic Whizard automatic creaser.
The result of the in-plant’s changed attitude and new equipment installations, Russell reports, has been a decrease in turnaround times, more satisfied customers and an increase in the shop’s budget for next fiscal year.
