PANGEA/COPYPAGE, located in Los Angeles, CA, is creating variable data booklets, such as health insurance policies, personalized coupons and newsletters, using a complete bookletmaking system from Duplo. Previously combining manual methods with a unit from another manufacturer, the company installed the 500Pro Digital Booklet System, which configures a DSF-5000 Sheet Feeder with the DBM-500 Bookletmaker, and a square spine module to increase the productivity of their operation. The DSF-5000 processes pre-collated sets at up to 400 sheets per minute into the DBM-500, where it is then accumulated, stitched, folded and face trimmed into high-quality booklets. The booklets are then processed and finished by the square spine unit.

“The system has increased our speed and accuracy, and provides the ability to process pre-collated sets offline, which is something we could not do before and is required in a digital environment,” says Lundy Smith, president of Pangea. “It also provides the ability to do variable booklets, which is needed for a VDP business like ours. The intelligent stitching capability ensures accuracy of the finished product.” Pangea is a digital print service and web-enabled document procurement provider serving the Los Angeles area.
