Kwik Kopy Springvale has invested in a the country’s first Mamo SQ 320 Digit bookletmaker, and says it is already exceeding expectations.
The Mamo is an Italian built solution supplied in this country by Australian Graphic Servicing (AGS). The SQ 320 is part of a series of digital print systems suited to digital copy centres and small offset printers.
David Spreadborough, owner of the Kwik Kopy Springvale, is currently celebrating ten years with his own print shop, he purchased into the business in 2008 having worked there for three years prior to that.
Spreadborough says, “The speed and productivity of the Mamo is perfect for our workflow and customer demands. It is able to produce up to 480 booklets an hour, without the square back, or up to 290 an hour with the square back.
“In addition the footprint of the Mamo SQ 320 Digit is advantageous for our business, the SQ 320 Digit is on caster wheels and we can move around the room if necessary. And operating the machine is simple, it is easy to use, everybody in the factory can run it.”
Glenn Maynard, managing director of supplier AGS says, “Mamo Equipment is European quality at affordable prices. We have been dealing with Mamo for about 12 months. The build quality is excellent, and the price point is affordable for copy shops, franchises and small offset printers.”
David Spreadborough says, “The landscape A4 sizes feature is a perfect fit for us, and the square back is a nice feature, being able to offer that to our clients has been a real bonus, customer feedback on the quality of the square back fold has been positive.”
The Mamo SQ 320 can punch and fold up to 30 sheets. Its exclusive feeding length of 615mm will lead to squared A4 landscape booklets. Up to four stapling heads can be installed (two stapling heads are included in the machine).
AGS says the digital control panel will let you set easily set paper length (with ISO formats or free input) and square spine level, up to five levels. Staple position on the spine can also be adjusted on the control panel. Standard staples or loop staples can be used. It can be operated in manual or automatic mode for faster processing, and the side guide can be motorised for easier set-up.
