PDS Completes Largest Installation in Its History at Imageworks

Trade printing leader Imageworks (Richmond Hill, Ontario) has installed a Duplo 600i Bookletmaker from Print Digital Solutions (PDS) that also consists of two 10/60i Suction Collating Towers, a DBM600T Face Trimmer, a DKT200 Two-Knife Trimmer and a DBM LSW Long Stacker. The installation is the largest single install in one location in PDS’ history. Imageworks opened in 1994 as a traditional prepress and film house with a Hell drum scanner, a Lino 330, proofing equipment and “lots of light tables.” From these beginnings, the company has evolved into a full-solution trade printer. Its customers include print brokers, copy shops, in-plant print shops, and smaller printers whose equipment is too small to produce certain jobs – as well as large printers whose equipment is too large to produce smaller jobs cost-efficiently.

The 600i, Duplo’s high-end collating and bookletmaking solution, produces professional saddle, side, or corner-stitched booklets as well as letter-landscape applications. It can produce up to 5,200 booklets per hour or collate up to 10,000 sets per hour into a stacker. It also enables users to operate the entire system from a PC as well as create and save virtually an unlimited number of jobs onto the hard drive for even faster changeovers. Users can also customize the 600i Bookletmaking System with a variety of options to fit their needs – such as the DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer and Gutter Cutter for three-side trimming capabilities and teo-up processing.

For over 31 years, PDS has been a Canadian leader in supplying and servicing a host of printing, finishing and label-making technology to the Canadian market.

PDS is also a distributor for the world’s leading original equipment manufacturers, including OKI, Duplo, Mutoh, MBM and MultiGraf Touchline.
