Doc is always on the prowl for case studies, though I prefer the ones where things don't work out to those where everything is rosy. Alas, this case study from Printing Impressions falls into the latter category, with all the players living happily ever after.
BR Printers, with plants in San Jose, California and Independence, Kentucky, announced they have chosen the InfoPrint 5000 to meet the high demands of its customers looking for both color and monochrome short runs of books. BR Printers, an international commercial printer focused on the publishing market, reportedly evaluated many inkjet offerings before ultimately deciding on the InfoPrint 5000.
Immediately after installation, the InfoPrint 5000 provided cost-savings for BR. Previously, the company was outsourcing most color jobs and utilizing in-house cutsheet printers for its monochrome jobs. By replacing these models with the InfoPrint 5000, thereby eliminating the need for outsourcing, the company was able to realize bottom line increases.
The InfoPrint 5000 family of solutions utilizes piezo-electric drop-on-demand inkjet technology with multi-bit per spot for every object on the page. This is coupled with its water-based pigment and dye inks designed to resist fading and smearing to optimize the appearance of the output while minimizing the volume of ink consumed. These systems support PostScript and PDF and provide accurate, consistent, and device-independent color-rendering that enables error recovery, concise auditability, and security benefits.
We'll keep an eye on BR Printing and report back sometime in the future as to how things are going. Seems they have started off on the right foot!
