Elite Print Finishing (CONT’D FROM PAGE 24)

specialty work, a long “universal multi-function section” with crash/auto lock bottom and integrat- ed “bump & turn” capabilities, left and right upper driven folding belts, as well as an additional servo driven back-folding axis. When asked about efficiencies gained with the Smartfold, Roberts said, “I can give you a perfect example. We were running a neutraceutical pack- age on the Media at the same time we were set up and ready to run it on the Smartfold. We were running at about 6,000 pieces an hour on the ex- isting gluer and we produced it at 38,000 piec- es an hour on the new gluer. We could run that same structure at about 50,000, but the problem is I can’t pack it that fast. It has been a very good investment so far.” Stunning Effects With the new MGI JETvarnish 3D, EPF can offer quick finishing solutions without the conventional overhead of dies and/or screens. Roberts says the machine takes contoured hot foil and raised spot UV coatings to a new dimension. “Everyone who sees and touches this work is completely overwhelmed by the vision and touch senses. We had a client tell us the product pretty much sells itself.”
