After 3 years, to keep up with demand Awesome Merchandise bought a sophisticated digital multi-function printer. But 18 months ago they realised that it was also becoming overwhelmed by the volume of work. As a result, they were suffering from quality and productivity problems. It had become very labour intensive and they needed overtime to cope with the breakdowns.
Awesome Merchandise chose us to enable their business through new technology. They wanted to produce more work in a shorter time frame. Our solution included a bizhub PRESS machine with a print speed up to 80 pages per minute in colour and mono. And an expandable input capacity of up to 10,760 sheets. This represented a turning point for digital colour stability and quality, even on long print runs.
Following installation, Awesome Merchandise has been pleased with the performance. They've been able to increase the throughput due to the process efficiencies. Poster printing and cutting have become largely automated with the new equipment.
They've also been impressed with our after sales support with prompt and efficient engineering service.
"The bizhub PRESS C8000 eats up work, so we have been able to increase throughout due to the process efficiencies. Poster printing and cutting which were very labour intensive have been largely automated because of the new equipment Konica Minolta supplied. Although we are still expanding the range of jobs and the volume of work, the bizhub PRESS C8000 has plenty of capacity to meet the increasing demand."
