The Cheshire-based printer and bookbinder has added the K80 to its arsenal, joining four new Baumann Wohlenberg guillotines, Quickbinder and Trim-tec three knife trimmer from Wohlenberg, rounding off a six-year upgrade programme. The firm’s 50,000 sq ft site now houses over 100 items of finishing equipment.

“The MBO K80 is a superb machine, it beat the competition due not only to the level of automation, but the slitter shaft cassette. This has been a great hit with the operators. It means make readies are incredibly fast, so we can improve efficiency in the fold area, helping us to improve customer services and turnaround times,” says Kevin Lee, operations director at Deanprint.

The patented MBO slitter shaft cassette on the new range of folders allows the shaft to be slid out, removed and reinstalled. Tools and strippers can be adjusted easily by the operator, reducing set-up times by almost 60 percent in a multi-up production.

Mitch Ball, sales specialist for Friedheim says: “Deanprint were established in 1890, which means they’re as old as we are and share similar values. They are a company with a reputation for supplying top quality printing and bookbinding services. The only way to maintain that position is to purchase equipment that fulfils that requirement. We’ve provided finishing equipment for their six-year-long refresh and it’s been a pleasure every step of the way.

“The MBO K80 is one of MBO’s newest and versatile editions to the range. It’s perfect for the UK printing industry, both great value for money and performance. It’s also very operator friendly especially with the new M1 control and is a perfect match-up with Deanprint and the workflow they need it for.”
