Twin Digital Presses Boost Indiana University’s Color CapacityJanuary 2013 By Bob Neubauer
One performance area where the C7000 excelled was in the running of heavy stock. The in-plant occasionally gets orders for postcards on 14-point stock. While both the Ricoh and Konica machines will run the stock, “the Konica’s the only one that will duplex print on 14-point stock,” Goss says. Having this ability has cut production costs.
Goss is excited about the variety of new substrates the machines can handle, such as back-lit plastic and cling-and-peel sheets.
“We’re printing magnets on these new machines,” he says. He has high hopes for getting into the specialty media market. Of course, this will probably happen after his retirement. After 28 years with Indiana University, and long-time involvement with industry associations like ACUP, Goss plans to retire on March 31, his 65th birthday.
