Chipping Sodbury-based printer Azimuth Print has purchased a new Horizon AFC-566F automated B2 folding system from Intelligent Finishing Systems days after its launch at drupa – despite only attending the German print show as a 'scouting' mission for potential development in internet-based quick-response work.
"This is an area where we can make a difference right away," says Azimuth Print managing director Tony Edmonds on seeing the machine, "because it not only expands the number of fold options we can offer at the push of a button, but it virtually eliminates set-up waste – and when a digitally printed sheet is costing anything up to ten pence, that's a significant saving."
The Horizon AFC-566F features 17 standard fold pattern options, including eight and twelve page and parallel, zig-zag and concertina, and an on-board memory for bespoke or regular jobs, as well as print mark registration and on-screen maintenance scheduling.
Azimuth Print also uses a Horizon BQ-270 automated perfect binder for its service, ShortRunBooks.org.uk.
