Laval, Quebec, Canada - Imprimerie Bourg Royal, a full-service printing company located in Quebec City, Quebec, recently installed two Standard/Horizon finishing solutions; a Creaser/Folder and an in-line Bookletmaking system. These were purchased from KBR Graphics, the exclusive Canadian distributor for Standard/Horizon Finishing Systems.
The three generations of the Paquet family, that still today all work together at Imprimerie Bourg Royal, invested in a Standard/Horizon CRF-362. The Creaser/Folder will handle their unique commercial requirements of creasing and folding digital colour output across a wide range of coated or uncoated light and heavy weight stocks. Their creasing and folding will now easily be accomplished in one pass for easy and accurate processing of a variety of applications such as restaurant menus, greeting cards, book covers, and many types of marketing collateral.
"Attaining an accurately finished product is categorically the most important step the production of digitally printed material. The CRF-362 is a really good fit for them and we are so pleased on how the operators have easily taken to the equipment and have hit the ground running" says Karl Belafi Jr., Vice President KBR Graphics Ltd.

The up-to 4,500 books per hour SPF/FC-200A features a 200-programe job memory storage for instant recall, and icon-based touch-screen for job set-up.
