    Recent quote on Iridesse?

    I don't know if Xerox offers this but, when we bought our machines at a previous job we got 10% fixed buyouts. It gave us the tax benefits of a $1 buyout at the time (2008 ish). We had a fixed amount at the end of the lease that we could either pay off or refi for an extra year if we liked the...

    Pink? Yep. Pink.

    How about it's an overused cliché. It's like when a news service rediscovers sewing or knitting and have the brilliant headline "Knitting: It's not just for Grandmas anymore!"

    Feedback on Hydraulic Guillotine Cutters

    @jwheeler one more thing. Make sure you can slide your stack under the safety lights onto the wing tables. The picture of the triumph makes it look like the safety lights are at table height and that would suck.

    Feedback on Hydraulic Guillotine Cutters

    I've had good experiences with Challenge, a previous employer is still running their Challenge 305 programable from the late 90's. I like having an air table but, unless I'm cutting a lot of material I don't notice if it's not available. In a perfect world I'd rather a 30"(30.5) over a 26 inch...

    Does the Konica KM1 have and "Adobe PDF Print Engine" Option?

    We've had a few jobs recently that are not printing correctly on the KM1. When we moved the jobs over to our Ricoh 9110 the issue persisted until we checked the "Adobe PDF Print Engine Preferred" box. Then the job printed fine. That little check box has bailed my butt out a lot over the years &...

Ideally here's what we'd like to do. 1 rename each page label with the folio name. The folios names are not consistent but, the placement on the...

    ideal 4315 stack cutter not cutting straight

    At our place it's usually a dull knife & cutting through spongy stock like 50 or 60# opaque. Edit: Looking at this cutter, I ran a similar one from Morgana. The clamp is electric not hydraulic & is not that strong. Start with smaller lifts.

    I use an Aircare at home. Mine is a big bucket with 4 wicks. It works great in a split level 1500sq ft home. It doesn't have a fill bottle, you just pour water in the top. It's a lot easier than the units with bottles.

    Double fold on a booklet

    I've never had great success doing this. You have a rigid spine made even more rigid with the addition of stitches.

    processing time

    The processing occurs ar the digital front end. With a production machine you can add a lot of horsepower to your processing with a bustled or external controller. It's going to speed up processing time a lot.
