Duplo System 5000 Pro

Cube Printing Duplo System 5000 Pro Case Study

Limerick-based Cube Printing recently invested in new finishing kit, new press and pre-press systems - and new staff. On the finishing side, Cube installed a Duplo System 5000 Pro 30 station booklet maker supplied by Neopost Ireland towards the end of last year. 


An existing client was producing a new project and they required marketing literature to accompany their packaging," says Managing Director Brendan Ring. "They wanted to upgrade the visuals on their packaging and they wanted that to be applied to their booklets as well. Millions of booklets were required and we needed this machine to saddle stitch the job in a specific format.


Cube have been working with Duplo since 1995 and recently upgraded to a new and improved Duplo – '' it is faster and more efficient so it meets all our requirements. The old Duplo was capable of running the job but the newer one could do it more efficiently. We already had another 30 station Duplo so we now have dual Duplo systems running side by side.

Cube Printing also upgraded the digital side of its operation late last year with the installation of a new Nuvera press from Xerox and a new Mohr guillotine supplied by Neopost Ireland and the upgrading of its Tharstern MIS system to Primo.


We spent a week putting the new MIS system in place and we had follow up training until the end of March," says Brendan. "Primo is user-friendly and has some nice drop down screens. It is easy to navigate and has a great reporting facility. Now our accounting package and our personnel package is completely integrated with our MIS and that gives us time to look at the more important aspects of the business. Over time, the upgraded MIS will also be able to provide feedback to me about costs in different aspects of the business which will help me to see which sectors are profitable for us and which aren't.


Cube Printing's Sales Manager TJ Ryan, who is the current Limerick Inter County Senior Hurling Manager, is the company's new General Manager & Sales Director. TJ was appointed at the beginning of this year and we appointed a Quality Management Representative, Arthur Gough, in late 2013," says Brendan.


We believe that the market for print is picking up so we want to capitalise on that by employing a dedicated quality management person who is responsible for and committed to maintaining and developing the quality management systems in Cube Printing.
