Print Bound has slashed its cost and turnaround time with C.P. Bourg

Print Bound has slashed its cost and turnaround time to produce on-demand books and booklets by adding two Bourg Booklet Maker solutions (i.e., BSF+ BM-e + BCM-e) to its two Xerox iGen 150s.

 

The Melbourne firm is the first printer in Australia to run two C.P. Bourg Booklet Maker solution (i.e., BSF+ BM-e + BCM-e) attached In-Line to its two Xerox iGen Presses.

Naresh Gulati, chief executive of parent company OCA, says "the In-Line finishing kit has dramatically cut the cost to produce a booklet".

The machines were installed partially to meet demand from the company’s personalised brochure platform, which Gulati says six of OCA’s university clients are already utilising.

Launched last July, the company’s East Brochure Maker tailors brochure designs to the needs of individual customers, giving them only the information they need, for targeted direct mail campaigns.

C.P. Bourg says Print Bound’s ExPress models, including a Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF), eliminate make ready-time and printed paper waste to increase efficiency on short runs.

The systems include Fuji Xerox’s FreeFlow Print Server workflow software, and can run around the clock.

Gulati says printers can use Print Bound’s capabilities to produce the personalised brochures without investing in new kit they may only use occasionally.

"Rather than miss the job or buy that machine, we can provide an outsource solution while they test the model and decide if they can justify the investment,” he says.
