Covercrease USA System Offers Backbone Fiber Cracking Solution
Press release from the issuing company
March 22, 2004, Los Angeles, CA – A solution to the “backbone cracking” problem that is costing binderies and printers valuable time and labor is now being used by binderies from the U.K., South Africa, Australia, Canada, South East Asia and all over the United States. The Covercrease USA System eliminates the additional process of putting jobs through another machine and back to your cover feeder. Off-line jobs are reportedly history. The System runs inside a specially manufactured steel-based polymer creasing band which lasts up to over 1,000,000 copies. According to Ceil Hansen, Senior Partner of Covercrease USA headquartered in Woodland Hills, CA, “Successful field trials in trade finishers prove that our product is a profitable device. The creasing system pays for itself in weeks against trade prices. You’ll see improved margins on your quotations because now you can produce work at stitcher speeds, not cylinder speeds.”
Rex D. Miller, President of one of the leading binderies in Fontana, California and with over 120 full-time employees and over 30 years of experience in the Industry says, “Southern California Bindery & Mailing has saved thousands since we purchased this System. We specialize in saddle stitching and perfect binding, so I am confident that we keep many customers happy by using the Covercrease USA System to score our covers. As a visionary, I made sure that my firm utilizes the most advanced high speed technology. This innovative, yet simple System produces perfect creases on almost all types of difficult stock. We highly recommend it.”
Anthony Estrada, General Manager of BJ Bindery, an Orange County trade bindery which employs over 130 people had their new Covercrease USA System installed several months ago. Anthony says “Now we can run solid covers with confidence. This System has definitely allowed us to add a cutting-edge bindery service in addition to our gluing and packaging services, a hallmark of competitiveness in the Industry.”
Quebecor World in Quebec, Canada purchased the Covercrease USA System back in November. Their Bindery Manager Bob LaFlamme says “It has dramatically increased our productivity. The quality of our work is very important since our credibility is at stake, we have several Quebecor World facilities all over the world and this will keep us on
top of the Industry.”
OK Binderywith its new 20,000 square feet location in Pico Rivera, California and a growing staff of 40 full and part time employees purchased the Covercrease USA System last year. OK Bindery’s AVP Chay Changsays, “This unit is especially good with coated/UV cover stock and can even eliminate cracking when scoring against the grain. What usually would have to be scored offline can now be finished inline by the Stitcher. The Covercrease USA System is aningenious little concept that has increased and made more efficient the level of productivity my company is able to provide for our customers.”
The Covercrease USA System will be seen in action live at the company’s exhibit booth at DRUPA in Dusseldorf, Germany from May 6 – 19th. A major leap for the company as the Covercrease USA team will launch several brand new products at the Show. Rotraboss, the new patented creasing system for perfect binding machines follows on the success of the Covercrease USA System fitted on the range of saddle stitchers. Binderies and printers all over the world are eagerly awaiting the launch of this new product at DRUPA’s American Hall 15, Booth 15B14-6.
