Dorset Digital invests in new Morgana AutoCreaser

Print Solutions

Dorset Digital Print, based in Wimborne, has enhanced its print finishing capabilities with the addition of a Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 50.

The creasing machine has replaced an aging DigiFold, and is being used to crease both litho and digital work produced by the company.

Commenting on the purchase, Debbie Summers, joint director of the company, said: ‘We put it to work as soon as it was installed, creasing a six page A4 brochure! A creaser is a critical tool in order to produce a clean well folded printed product.’

Dorset Digital Print needed to carry on producing during the Covid-19 lockdowns of this crazy last year: ‘It has been tough, but, as we needed to produce print items for the local hospitals, it was essential. As directors, we have had to put a lot of hours in ourselves, of course, whilst using the flexi furlough scheme to ensure that we had enough staff to handle the work as it came to us.’ said Debbie.

‘Like everyone else, we are looking forward to a return to something approaching normal in the near future. Up to last March things were going wonderfully for us as a company, and then, like many others, the work largely dried up.

‘Thankfully, we were able to help some customers by producing shorter runs of work via our digital printing service, rather than the long runs that they might have normally ordered. We are looking forward to the long runs returning very soon.’

The AutoCreaser Pro 50 provides the complete solution to the problem of cracking that can occur when folding digitally printed output. It is equally effective in dealing with conventionally printed card, laminates or cross-grained stock. The machine employs Morgana’s unique creasing rule and matrix that eliminates tearing and, therefore, cracking of the printed image.

The intuitive seveninch SmartScreen controls all the main functions of the AutoCreaser Pro 50. Using the screen is simplicity itself. Key in the sheet length (popular sizes are pre-set), touch the fold type for the finished product, and press the green button. The AutoCreaser Pro 50 will then automatically calculate where the creases need to be and set them accordingly.

The unit can produce up to 16 creases per sheet, on stock from 0.4 mm, and can run at up to 8500 sheets per hour.

The AutoCreaser Pro 50 is part of a range of equipment at Dorset Digital for folding, trimming, die cutting, padding, wire-o binding, drilling, stab stitching and saddle stitching. ‘High quality printing is important, but that then needs fast and efficient finishing to a high standard to complete the work,’ added Debbie. The company also offers its post press expertise as a trade service for other local print businesses.

Work at Dorset Digital Print is printed either digitally on its Xerox equipment, or on its five colour offset litho press. In addition to its health service work the company also produces print for a wide range of general commercial work for clients from many varied sectors.

Other services offered by Dorset Digital Print include graphic design, from a new logo or corporate branding through to full colour brochures or catalogues, and large format printing, from shop signage through to promotional banners.
