Bindery / Folders
Last post by DigiCorn - July 19, 2024, 11:55:27 AM
We're in the market for a new folder. Currently looking at a Duplo for $9600. Needs to be in the $10000 price range new. The largest sheets we print (that need folding) is 12x18. An MBO is probably overkill for what we do, and also probably too expensive. Any recommendations? Nothing fancy... usually just fold in half or brochure/letter folding (and engineer/z folds).

Our procesless Fuji plates were too light to see the image at first, but the new generation is dark enough to check things.

I believe the Kodak Sonora Xtra plate has fixed the issue with the image being too light.
Or at least it is better.  We will see next week when we test.

We have KBA 106s and the Kodak process free plates are too light for the autoloader feature to work on these presses. We used to run the Fuji process free plates and they were dark enough for the KBAs.

This slows the press operators down a little bit, but management is ok with it, seeing the cost difference.

Plus we got a deal on our plates through Kodak, seeing we purchased a new Magnus with a palette loader. Which is quite nice.

I can officially confirm that Heidelberg is now using the Kodak Sonora Xtra as it's process free plate offering to its customers.
Just had our Heidelberg rep in here yesterday and we are going to be testing the Sonora Xtra through our Supersetter 106 CTP.
Then onto our 40 inch Heidelberg press's.

They have all our stuff locked down pretty tight. I couldn't even add the laser printer in my office. I was able to add some scripts to ID and create some PDF fixups in Acrobat, but can only use certain, approved locations. I was able to install (and use) FontBase, a free font management software, because I can't drag and drop fonts to the Fonts folder in ID. I get why IT does it, but some of it is overkill.

I'm sure this isn't allowed, but If I worked at a place that didn't have pitstop 
I would buy it myself. I have a small company mindset now tho.
I actually like working in bigger companies tho!!

Yeah - I get what the end result was. I was a little distracted because I'm on this webex all day, every day this week and still trying to work. 

I don't know what kind of voodoo magic I thought was gonna extract the names out of the field in the individual files. I should just chant and swing a dead cat over my head while facing east.

Quote from: DigiCorn on 7/9/2024, 3:57:51 PMOK. That worked... but it copied the file name and not the field contents of the pdf, which is what I really need.This would be great if the customer had named the file with the name of the recipient, and not some random initials (which don't even match the name).

Correct - this is just a way to use Data Merge to place all the PDFs into an InDesign document so you wouldn't have to manually place them like you did.

I think that is standard procedure for all file names, use something that has nothing to do with what it is.
