Folder Makes Impression on Long Island Campus
“Five years in the world of cutters is like last week,” he explains. “That machine is another real beast.”
Conigliaro admits that, since the shop is considered a government entity, getting funding for new printing and bindery gear can be tough.
“But we are one of the few government entities that does well,” he points out. “So we are upgrading slowly but surely. We just upgraded to computer-to-plate.”
The shop added a Glunz & Jensen iCTP PlateWriter 2500, he says, to make plates for its Heidelberg and Multi offset presses. The in-plant also relies on a Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 for digital color jobs along with five Konica Minolta bizhub PRO 1051s for monochrome. A Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300S handles the shop’s wide-format printing.
