David Zwang at OPM's new installation of Kodak's 1000 and 5000 XL

Published on November 15, 2010

Dave Zwang on location at OPM highlights a recent Kodak 1000 and a 5000 XL installation.

Hi, Dave Zwang from WhatTheyThink.  Here we are at OPM and it’s right outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania with their new Kodak installation.  We’ve got a 1000 and a 5000 XL they just put in and this is a complete digital book system.  Going from print right through to finished book. 

That would be the 5000 over there, this is this 1000, and the 1000 is strictly for black and white and the 5000 is running color.  In this case, the color they’re running, they’re actually running full book blocks in color over there.  They not running the covers there, they’re running the covers somewhere else.  Probably they’re on an EP machine or on an offset machine and they’re marrying them together in the unit over here. 

This is – the vinyl noise you’re hearing here is 3 knife trimmer.  This is where the actual book after it’s been married together, bound, glued, it’s being trimmed out and then comes right up here – right up the panel here to a tray where she’s pulling it off and sticking it out ready to go stick it in a box somewhere. 

Yeah, I think that it’s very exciting to see all of this discussion that we’ve had over the years in terms of what was possible finally come to fruition and it’s bodes for a very exciting future for the industry.
