Published on February 17, 2011
Jim Lucanish, President of O'Neil Data Systems tells Cary about the equipment they are looking at purchasing at Hunkelers Innovationdays.
Cary: Hi, I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Jim Lucanish who's President of O'Neil Data Systems in L.A. and soon to be Texas.
Jim Lucanish: Yes.
Cary: We're here at Hunkeler Innovation Days 2011 here in Lucerne and maybe you can talk a little bit about what you've seen out on the floor that's interesting.
Jim Lucanish: Well, my purpose for coming here is we're opening a Texas facility, so I'm looking to purchase equipment.
Cary: I'm sure that makes them happy.
Jim Lucanish: They're all happy. They're my friends this week. One of the things I did purchase was a Hunkeler device, which is a 30-inch book block maker.
Cary: Okay. Oh, that they were showing in the back of the --
Jim Lucanish: Yes, yes.
Cary: Oh, that's pretty impressive with the double plow fold.
Jim Lucanish: Yes. And I'm excited about that and I'm going to up that on a T200 HP Press. So we're pretty excited about that.
Cary: Wow. And that'll go in Texas?
Jim Lucanish: It'll probably go in Los Angeles and in Texas. But I haven't told them that yet.
Cary: They'll know now.
Jim Lucanish: I know.
Cary: And what I found interesting about that was that the glued book block that it comes off as glued. So will you be -- will you have special finishing equipment that actually grabs that?
Jim Lucanish: The goal is to put that directly in line into a binder.
Jim Lucanish: Eventually. And what we're going to do a little bit differently in Dallas than we did in Los Angeles because we have the luxury to do that now is to try to create a total roll workflow. We're going to really get away from cut sheet, feed binders with rolls, and some kind of interesting things.
Cary: That's great. That's great. So you're going home a little poorer then in the checkbook?
Jim Lucanish: Yes, we're going to go home poorer. Hopefully, the sales will pull me through.
Cary: There you go. That's great. Thank you very much for sharing with us.
