Fujifilm To Partner (CONT’D FROM PAGE 40)


“Fujifilm offset, flexo and digital technologies already enable customers to print a wide range of striking metallic effects – either through the use of metallic inks or by us- ing white inks on metallic substrates,” said Manuel Schrutt, Head of Packaging, Fujifilm EMEA. “But with the Color-Log- ic System, customers can now also create a pre-defined palette of metallic colours that can be installed into Adobe design apps. They then have the ability to print these pal- ettes as colour charts or swatch books, on their own press, to then give to their clients. This enables a 100 percent reliable color communication system for metallics which runs from the design stage of the process through to the printing itself. We’re delighted to be working with the clear technology leader in this field and providing out custom- ers with yet more flexibility and opportunity.” The John Roberts Company Adds Koenig & Bauer Folder Gluer As The John Roberts Company celebrates its seventh decade in business, its business model is shifting toward additional packaging work to complement its sheetfed, digital, and web production. The Minneapolis/St. Paul firm, which is ranked as one of the top 100 printers nationally, needed to relieve a bottleneck in its bindery and turned to a new partner, Koenig & Bauer, to meet their increased demands.

“As our focus turns more into high quality packaging production, we needed a new folder gluer immediately to handle our growing volume,” says Scott Zorn, Director of Operations at The John Roberts Company. “This is a growth area for us. While we’ve produced packaging in the past, this additional effort is contributing to our overall presence in the market and our bottom line. Not only did Koenig & Bauer fulfill our need, but they also exceeded our expectations by delivering the Allpro 110 folder gluer a week early.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 44 Scott Zorn, Director of Operations at The John Roberts Compa- ny, with its new Koenig & Bauer folder gluer.
