Duplo System 5000i Case Study

Impro Printing Duplo System 5000i Case Study

Belfast, Co. Antrim-based Impro Printing recently purchased a new Duplo System 5000i, adding to the range of Duplo equipment already on their premises.


We are producing very high volumes so we needed to install an upgrade on our previous booklet maker - Impro regularly invest in modern technology, upgrading pre-press systems and implementing a fully integrated print finishing suite,” says Managing Director Pat Beattie. "The majority of printing and finishing is also done in-house and this combination means that the company can offer many services to customers. We have operated a number of Duplo booklet makers over the year and this is probably our sixth piece of kit from Duplo. We have a Duplo laminator as well as a creasing machine supplied by them. We also operate guillotines, folders and a Heidelberg cylinder and platen.


Impro are digital and Litho printers...



“We have a Xerox 8080 production press and on the Litho side we operate a Komori five colour B2 press and e a KBA 10-colour SRA2 perfecting press," says Pat. "Most of our output is still Litho but our digital side has increased in recent years. We installed the Xerox 8080 two years ago to cope with customers demand for faster turnaround and we operate an Epson Stylus 9080 to produce posters and some point of sale materials for drink companies. Since the start of December until now we have been very busy." 


Impro Printing has been trading for over 30 years, providing print to a broad base of public and private sector clients. Impro are one of Ireland’s most respected printers providing a complete range of high quality print solutions at very competitive prices. Employing 34 people, the company specialises in the printing of leaflets, brochures and business stationery.


"We produce a wide range of printed matter, anything from a million letterheads to brochures, including corporate brochures, and annual reports," says Pat. So are they planning to make any investments on the printing side of the business? "We are in talks with KBA and with Komori at the moment to see if we can invest further in new presses," says Pat.
