Achieving a greater throughput and quality output with a print production machine
Hunts established its digital print offering with a very basic machine. But as demand increased for short-run color digital work, it was clear they needed an upgrade. It needed to be faster, more robust with greater throughput and better quality output.
They decided to invest in a state of the art Konica Minolta bizhub print production machine. Because of the value for money, speed and print quality. It also allows for a flexible choice of online finishing options including folding, stapling and binding.
Rich Wickson, Digital Print Supervisor at Hunts , explains: “We began with one very basic machine that was little more than an office colour laser printer, but as demand increased for short run colour digital work it was clear that something faster, more robust with greater throughput and better quality output was required”. Hunts set about finding a solution and decided to invest in a state of the art Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 Print Production system. “It was a great choice for us, and has proved valuable in our service offerings.”
With a large plant investment in existing offline finishing equipment, Hunts opted for large capacity stacker units in the system configuration selected. However, the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS range can be supplied with a flexible choice of online finishing options including, hole punching, folding, stapling, saddle stitching and perfect binding, if required. Hunts also selected a Fiery print controller although a Creo option is also available. “We were already using Fiery controllers and imposition is easy and accurate, we find.”
We are a customer centric and quality conscious print provider, so I'm pleased to say that the print quality of these machines is also good. I think it's really closed the gap between litho and digital. All in all Konica Minolta has fully exceeded our expectations
