Finishing

Corinium Colour speeds up with KAS

Cirencester-based Corinium Colour has enhanced its finishing capabilities with the addition of a KAS K640 bookletmaker.

The KAS K640 bookletmaker was installed in line with current social distancing rules

The installation of the new machine comes after the print business also took on a five-colour Ricoh press to bolster its digital printing, with the two devices now set to run alongside each other at its production facility.

Purchased from Ashgate, the UK distributor for KAS, the KF640 is the first device of its size and price to produce a maximum booklet size of 320mm x 320mm, as well as more common sizes including A4 landscape and 12” x 12” booklets.

The machine can also handle a maximum sheet size of 640mm x 320mm, which Ashgate says means the sheets do not require pre-trimming of the short edge on a guillotine prior to producing an A4 landscape booklet.

“Demand for booklets has grown significantly since we installed the Ricoh C7200x press; although we can finish them online, we wanted to improve our productivity and quality,” Corinium Colour director Iain Cox says.

It is ideal for our type of work, not only because of the formats it can handle but also because it finishes a range of stock

“In addition we wanted to bring all the booklet making in-house as we were outsourcing 25% of the longer runs.”

“It is ideal for our type of work, not only because of the formats it can handle but also because it finishes a range of stock. It is quick to setup and change sizes and although it is hand fed, we can produce over 800 booklets an hour.”
