Challenge

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Spingold needed to adapt its operations, to comply with lockdown restrictions whilst continuing to serve its customers. With its incumbent professional colour printer reaching the end of its operational life and service delays impacting production by as many as three days, Spingold went in search of a new press to take its place.

Challenge

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Spingold needed to adapt its operations, to comply with lockdown restrictions whilst continuing to serve its customers. With its incumbent professional colour printer reaching the end of its operational life and service delays impacting production by as many as three days, Spingold went in search of a new press to take its place.

Solution

Turning to its trusted expert print partner managed office services supplier ASL Group Ltd for advice, Ed Oakes, Managing Director of Spingold was introduced to the benefits of Konica Minolta’s market-leading AccurioPress C14000. Standout features of the AccurioPress for Spingold included its long sheet capability, three high-capacity vacuum feed stacking trays, and increased speed (up from the previous solution’s 70 ppm to 140 ppm).

Benefits

Just two months on from the installation Spingold’s new AccurioPress C14000 has already made a big impression on the team. Ed elaborated, “The increased capacity and speed have been highly beneficial in helping us meet the demands of our customers. Our Production Manager, Chris Hynard runs four printers and two laminators, so this increase in capacity means he now has more time to attend to all the machines, rather than having to manually supervise printing of large jobs.”

“I couldn’t be happier with it all. It’s great to be busy, to be able to employ new staff and to keep this talent in the industry. Print is undoubtedly changing; new markets are replacing traditional ones and it is essential to have the right tools and professional support in place as we all adapt.”
