The enhancement of the new Versafire digital printing generation is fully focused on customer benefit and the market requirements. With the Versafire EV, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) now offers a truly versatile digital production system, designed for use at entry level as well as by experienced digital printing providers. “The Versafire EV gives our customers a flexible production system that is specially designed to ideally meet the requirements in the graphic arts industry and that they can use to further enhance their digital business model as a result of diversification and optimization,” explains Stephan Plenz, Member of the Management Board responsible for Digital Technology at Heidelberg.
Copresco has installed a General Binding Corporation G2 punch to expand its binding capabilities for digitally printed books, manuals and publications.
“Combined with our Konica Minolta press, the GBC G2 provides professionally printed, punched and ready-to-bind documents—in one easy step,” notes Copresco President Steve Johnson.
With the new punch, along with two existing James Burn AlphaDoc punches, Copresco now has the option of preprint, inline, or post press punching for maximum flexibility and faster turnaround of loose-leaf, plastic coil and double loop wire bound books. “This assures that even with our growing production volumes Copresco will honor its Copies Overnight commitments,” Johnson says.
The GBC G2 offers numerous multiple-hole die set options with selectable pins for the most common professional punch patterns. It enables punching of a wide range of sheet sizes, on both the long and short edge of the sheet; and includes the ability to punch tabs.
Copresco produces millions of pages of short-run publications, books and manuals. Projects range from booklets, catalogs, handbooks, textbooks and technical materials to training aids, guidebooks, newsletters, calendars and cookbooks.
