April 23, 2015 PBI Internal use only 10 Modularity ~ Customer Situation The owner mid-sized print shop, Mike, makes a decision to get into mailing because of increased pressure from some of his top clients. Unfortunately, the owner does not have the budget this year for a full blown inkjet system. 80% of his current requirements are to simply addressing non-glossy postcards. He decides to make the investment in a 2” print system on the FIT-36.
April 23, 2015 PBI Internal use only 11 Modularity ~ Customer Situation The system works great for Mike until next year when his top customer now want to send glossy post cards. His current system does not have enough space for a dryer. In the past, Mike would have had to purchase a new transport or spend a significant amount of money adding an extension. Fortunately for Mike, he purchased a FIT transport that can host a dryer extension. It can be added on his existing base in less than 30 minutes. Print Head Dryer
April 23, 2015 PBI Internal use only 12 Modularity ~ Customer Situation 2 years into inkjet addressing, Mike’s company has now been approached by several customers wanting Mike to address their mail. His company is limited in what jobs they can offer a bid because his entry level system only allows for 2” of print. Lucky for Mike, he has a FIT transport. In less than 1 hour he can extend his current 36” base to a 72” single belt base, re-attach the dryer extension. Now it is ready to be upgraded from 2” of print up to 16”.
