SCREEN Americas announces the installation of its high-definition, continuous roll-fed inkjet web press, the Truepress Jet520HD+, to Consolidated Solutions of Cleveland, Ohio. The press, which was installed in August 2021, is the second SCREEN press for the printer. The first, a Truepress Jet520EX, was installed in 2015.
With local and national clients spanning several different markets including retail, medical, housing, commercial real estate, healthcare, insurance, higher education, sports and manufacturing, Consolidated Solutions sought technology to meet the demands of sophisticated buyers, particularly those in the healthcare industry whose high expectations include achieving color quality and maintaining their mail date compliancy requirements. The Truepress Jet520HD+ has proven to be the best solution for this meticulous market allowing Consolidated Solutions to have the capacity to add more healthcare communications work without the need for additional staff. SCREEN’s technology and overall reliability will allow the printer to grow in other lines of revenue.
While the company’s high volume commercial and direct mail projects are primarily produced on the Truepress Jet520HD+, the Ohio solution provider’s black and white transactional jobs are reserved for the Truepress Jet520EX. Prior to 2015, Consolidated Solutions relied on cut-sheet devices for its variable data work, however they proved to be too slow and unreliable for the time-sensitive healthcare and insurance markets, according to the company’s chief executive officer, Matt Reville. “For our day-to-day projects that were continual, we needed a press that could handle large volumes at high speeds,” said Reville. “Our smaller jobs that are non-repetitive are now assigned to the cut-sheet devices.”
The addition of the new SCREEN press came at a critical time for Consolidated Solutions. It has experienced growth in its healthcare segment during the past two years both in personnel and sales and it needed to react quickly to the increased demand. “We have a great partnership with SCREEN and the Truepress Jet520HD+ is helping us to meet the increased needs of our clients,” said Reville.
Founded in 1996, Consolidated Solutions employs 150 individuals, operates 24 hours per day, seven days per week and has two facilities located within a block of each other totaling 200,000 square feet. Both SCREEN presses are arranged in a straight-line configuration parallel to one another in proximity to the finishing equipment dedicated to the company’s direct mail applications.
