Not only are students attracted to the press for its contemporary look and design, automated features and ease of use, Craft said, but several students also have logged significant extracurricular time on it for special independent projects, some of which have won awards. Classroom lab assignments have included the production of limited quantities of newsletters and postcards, but the program also works with Appalachian State?¡¥s Printing and Publishing in-plant to produce longer-run materials for the University at large.
Appalachian State University is one of 16 campuses that comprise the University of North Carolina System. The Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology program has been training and educating students for more than 40 years, and currently graduates about 20 students a year. Around 150 students rotate through the program at any given time, not including 11 students with declared minors in the field. Appalachian State?¡¥s Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology facility is presently the largest of any program at the University, Craft noted, with obvious pride. The program actively supports the annual SkillsUSA partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives working together to ensure America has access to a skilled work force, which also has enjoyed the longstanding enthusiastic participation of Heidelberg.
The program?¡¥s choice of a Heidelberg Printmaster QM 46-2 to upgrade and enhance its student offerings was a no-brainer, Craft said. ?¡ãHeidelberg presses are built for the ages. I can?¡¥t think of a better investment.?¡À
Angelo State University In-Plant Trades Outsourcing for Printmaster GTO Workhorse
The in-plant print shop at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, is keeping more of its small-format printing in house since it installed a Heidelberg Printmaster GTO 52 4-color press in August.
?¡ãA lot of things used to go off-campus,?¡À said production supervisor Henry Begil, resulting in a loss of control over projects and higher costs. Now, however, the in-plant is saving the University money by exercising a larger measure of control over the production of brochures, postcards, recruitment and other materials in run lengths from 1,000 to 15,000 pieces. Managing the shop?¡¥s increased capacity ?¡ãhas definitely kept us busy,?¡À Begil said, and underscored the value of various time- and labor-saving features of the new Printmaster GTO press, especially the Prinect Classic Center control console, which makes short, convenient work of remote ink and register settings.
Carton industry in the past a lot of small plants, due to poorly equipped, the production of paperboard strength very low, a direct impact on the quality of the carton.
