Little Rock Document Services install first System 2000S
Little Rock Document Services, Calgary, Canada, installed a Morgana System 2000S bookletmaker with inline Square Spine Press technology and a Morgana CardXtra Plus business card cutter, both purchased through Sydney Stone, the official Morgana Systems dealer for Canada.
Founded in 1994, Little Rock Document Services becomes the first Canadian company to install the Morgana System 2000S with in-line Square Spine Press, which was launched in September 2013 at the PRINT 13 tradeshow in Chicago. The automated bookletmaking system can be used for both toner and lithographic production. It employs a 10-bin hybrid feeder with the ability to feed pre-collated sets, offset printed sets, or a combination of the two. Morgana introduced its CardXtra Plus into the market four years ago as a fixed cartridge based card-cutting system able to handle a range of work.
“The launch of the Morgana System 2000S at PRINT 13 has proven a great success,” stated Michael Steele, Co-owner of Sydney Stone. “Little Rock was quickly able to spot a system that offers great value for the price point. With a 30-sheet capacity, hybrid feeder, and square spine press inline, they are enabled to be very flexible in the work they accept.”
The latest version of the System 2000S bookletmaker is on show at GRAPH EXPO 14 featuring a new high capacity dual bin feeder. This combination offers a flexible solution for a wide range of booklet types and sizes. The AF602 air assisted feeder has a capacity of up to 21". Pre-collated sets can be placed into both bins or covers can be placed into one bin when they need to be merged with collated sets. The heavy-duty bookletmaking section comes complete with stitching heads and the addition of the unique Morgana Squarefold option gives a professional perfect bound effect to the finished publication.
The CardXtra Plus automates many finishing tasks in one versatile cutting and creasing unit. Business cards are an important focus: with CardXtra Plus a printer can take 250 standard sized business cards and finish them in less than two minutes. A small job such as this would previously have needed something like 18 cuts on a guillotine, and an awful lot of time. With and digital printing unit and CardXtra Plus, printers can now offer business card production as a “while you wait” service.
