    XEROX VERSANT V180 TONER ADHESION PROBLEM

    There isn't enough roller pressure or the fuser needs replacement. Double check that the paper profile weight and coating matches the package specifications. If it does not, fix it, run 'clean toner' sheets one color at a time, and try again. If that does not work, get a new fuser.

    Duplo finishing machines

    I'd say an hour or two a day of guillotine work saved in my case justified my purchase. Figure out your cost per hour for a guillotine operator and compare that with your payment or depreciation schedule for the slitter-cutter-creaser purchase.

    Duplo finishing machines

    Boggs Equipment sold a maxed out Duplo 646 IFS at auction last week for $33,000 USD. I was offered a DC615 refurb last year for $8,000. Thermotype is worth a look at- their machine build quality appears excellent. I would recomend calling and asking about refurbs. Here's a current used list...

    Die Cutting 1000 sheets/day 400 gsm

    Boggs Equipment is listing a Rollem rotary die cutter used. I'd guess that it will sell for $40,000. New is over 100k. Dies are $300 to $500 Duplo has a DB400 cutting table with an MSRP of $20,000 AP90's suggestion is probably the most cost effective. A used paper drill off of eBay or one of...

    Hot Glue Gun technique vs Perfect Binding

    Shredder- I've seen quite a few EVA perfect binders at auction sites. PUR binders are less common at auctions. My team doesn't do a lot of perfect bound books, but we have been doing them by hand with PVA glue from Amazon since it is less involved to apply than hot glue.

    Furniture for print room

    Pallet racks come to mind if you want easy of installation that snaps together. 8020 or Unistrut systems are a good DIY solution that requires some cutting and fasteners.
