In the USA, W+D North America has supplied a completely re-manufactured high speed envelope machine to Johnson/Anderson in Shakopee, Minnesota.
The machine, a 527GSV originally designed and built by W+D, was re-manufactured from the ground up utilizing OEM parts. Before delivery, W+D technicians conducted a series of performance tests on the machine and found that it ‘matched or exceeded the performance specifications of the original 527GSV machine’.
Jon Laurent, vice president of operations for Johnson/Anderson, comments: “Now we can compete in market segments where we have not previously been able to. With this machine, we gain increased production throughput with no drop-off in quality standards. And the time for our operators to learn how to run the machine is literally a fraction of the time we would have had to absorb with another approach.”
With the re-conditioning and upgrades Johnson/Anderson selected, W+D expects a 30% productivity gain over typical 527 machines in the market today.
