An Automated Folder Helps Business Rebound

The 13 months leading up to EZ Mailing’s trip to Standard Finishing’s demonstration center in Andover, MA in March to evaluate Horizon finishing equipment, have been busy. This included: moving into a newly renovated building, adding 2 new Horizon machines and on-boarding a new RMGT 920 Series Offset Press with LED-UV curing.

But, while many non-essential businesses were still closed, on May 1, 2020, EZ Mailing moved ahead with the purchase of the Horizon AFC-566FG Fully Automated Paper Folder—they were already selling jobs that needed a faster folder to produce. On May 11th, the new Horizon folder arrived and Graphco was there on the 12th to install and train. Their first job took 3 minutes to set up, and ran at 25,000 sph.

The new folder streamlines throughput & handles short & long runs, and sets up via a 10” color touchscreen. EZ Mailing also added a Horizon RD-4055 Rotary Die-Cutter to produce door-hangers, special shape direct mail pieces and round-corner business cards.
