Morgana Finish for Start-Up Digital Print Facility
Morgana Systems has supplied £70,000 worth of digital finishing equipment to the Magellan Group of Basingstoke, where it is being used to finish output from two Konica Minolta bizhub PRO C500s.
Originally established as Software Reproduction 15 years ago, the Magellan Group has expanded
into many different fields but still has a large requirement for manuals and training guides as well as stationery and specialised items such as CD and DVD booklets. Until recently all this was sourced from outside but, as Operations Director, Paul Marsh explains, “We had been looking for some time at the feasibility of setting up an in-house print facility and we took the plunge in May when we purchased the two Konica Minolta systems. When it came to finishing, everyone said we should talk to Morgana and we ended up purchasing a complete package from them.”
The package included a multi-functional DocuMaster, a DigiFold combined creaser/folder, a KB 2000 perfect binder, two Rhin-o-Tuff punch and bind systems and an EBA 551 programmatic guillotine. “We have to finish a wide variety of work”, Paul Marsh explains, “from 200pp manuals to wire-bound training guides and booklets, so we need to employ a number of different finishing techniques.”
Setting up the in-house print facility has paid dividends for Magellan with Paul Marsh reporting significant time and cost savings without any increase in overhead.
