New Video Highlights BYU’s Inkjet Press
In August 2019, Brigham Young University Print & Mail became the first university in-plant to install a production inkjet press. Now a new video shows that press in action as Director Doug Maxwell explains how it has revitalized the country’s largest university in-plant.
Based in Provo, Utah BYU Print & Mail added a continuous-feed Ricoh Pro VC60000 to print both religious scriptures on very lightweight paper and books from outside publishing companies. What’s most impressive about the machine is its ability to print on 23-lb. paper, an ability demonstrated in the video.
The inkjet press is able to do this by running roll-to-roll, with finishing done offline on Kolbus and Tecnau binders. The in-plant uses the inkjet press to print scriptures for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 150 different languages. This includes the “triple combination” — the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. Maxwell anticipates the in-plant will eventually print 10 million impressions per month of scriptures on the inkjet press.
