Jim Lucanish at O'Neil Data Systems talks about Innovationdays impressions

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.

Cary:  Okay.

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.
