Andover, MA – Standard Finishing Systems announces the following new product installations:
Printing X-Press, based in Houston, TX recently increased their post-press efficiency with the addition of a Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 saddlestitching system with in-line three-knife trimmer, and a Standard Horizon AFC-564A automated floor model folder. "When we saw the StitchLiner, we saw a chance to increase our productivity, due to the ultra-fast automated set-ups and the ability to load 4-page or flat sheet signatures directly into the StitchLiner, helping us to avoid the need to off-line signature fold" said Tad Molloy, Owner, Printing X-Press. Since installation the fast changeover times and productivity of the system have enabled Printing X-Press to dramatically increase the number of saddlestitching jobs they can efficiently process each day. The AFC-564A Folder was purchased to provide quick setups and changeovers, especially for shorter-run work. The sale was completed by Standard dealer LSS Digital of Houston, Texas. Printing X-Press, founded in 1979, is a full-service commercial printer that provides graphic design and prepress, offset printing, and bindery & finishing services.

The folder's intelligent, icon-based color touchscreen provides quick, easy and automated set-up, and allows for instant recall of regular jobs from memory. "This automated folder has been a real time-saver for us," said company president Lou Goldberg. "I can't imagine going back to a manual machine." The sale was completed by Standard dealer A.L. Larsen of Wilmington, Massachusetts. Goodcopy is family-owned and recently celebrated their fortieth anniversary providing quality commercial printing, digital printing, finishing and graphic arts services to the greater-New Haven business and university communities.

The nine-clamp binder's fully automated binding and three-knife trimming system features ultra-fast make-ready and changeovers, with advanced control technology.
