Multi-function Copier: $5,880
Kodak Prinergy Prepress Workflow System: $45,387 FUNDED
URGENT – WMP has been offered a $6,000 discount if purchased by the end of December, 2014 (reducing the cost to $39,387). We need to raise 80% of the purchase price before buying this system.
Our prepress department has been manually managing the department’s work flow, including initial development of items (Scripture materials, newsletters, brochures, etc.), changes / corrections to items, storage of source materials, storage of print-ready files, and various other items. Our current manual workflow management system is unwieldy, and makes it difficult for multiple workers to collaborate on projects.
The Kodak Prinergy system is the industry-standard for automating prepress workflow. Including state-of-the-art hardware and software, the system automates the placement of pages for plating, tracks work history, alerts of exception conditions, facilitates combining of full-color jobs (greatly improving efficiency for color covers), provides virtual proofing of print jobs, and is built for project collaboration amongst prepress staff.
Bindery Bailer Hopper: $3,810 FUNDED
With two binderies running much of the time, we need to relieve the backpressure on our bailer. With our current bag system, the ducts feeding bindery trimmings to the bailer can get clogged, shutting down production until cleared. This bailer hopper system will replace our current bag system to better relieve the backpressure.
Bindery Humidification System: $3,530 FUNDED
We need to add a humidification system to control humidity in the area around our new Osako bindery. This is important, to keep the static electricity down – allowing booklet covers to feed without sticking together.
Sheet-Fed Press Humidification System: $3,530 FUNDED
We need to add a similar humidification system to the area around our MAN-Roland 6-color press. Controlling humidity is key to keeping paper stock in top condition for printing and binding.
