Ampersand Printing of Guelph, Ontario, has installed a new Morgana AutoCreaser 50 PRO, a high-speed, flat-sheet creasing system that replaces a Morgana DigiFold purchased by Ampersand nine years ago.
“When we originally purchased the Morgana DigiFold we were dealing with a lot of short-run work that had high coverage and was prone to marking,” explained Damian McDonald, President of Ampersand. “Over time we have shifted technology and our requirement became creasing of high quantities of both 12- and 14-point card stocks and lighter weight stock to feed our high-capacity folding machines.”
The AutoCreaser 50 PRO, sold through Sydney Stone, has the ability to crease up to 8,500 sheets per hour on a 19.6-inch sheet width.
Ampersand, which recently moved into a new facility, in addiction to its toner and offset printing processes (Mitsubishi Diamond 3000LX), produces high-definition Staccato printing, 1 to 1 marketing and a range of finishing services. The Guelph company is Bullfrog Powered and leverages a CIP4-award-winning JDF workflow.
