1Vision, Inc. Selects MBO Roll Fed Finishing Line for its Postpress Flexibility


Marlton, NJ, June 6, 2022 —
MBO America MBO, a global leader in high-performance postpress finishing solutions, announced today that 1Vision, Inc., a multi-site marketing services provider, has added an MBO Roll Fed Finishing Line in its Denver, Colorado location to complement the company’s new roll fed inkjet press. This recent investment changes their direct mail workflow from a multi-step shell model to a white paper digital workflow, designed to touch the product only twice, once to print it and once to finish it. MBO’s Roll Fed Finishing Line was chosen for its high production capability, configuration flexibility and modular approach to finishing that can expand or adapt as the company’s requirements change.

“We looked at two different roll fed finishing line manufacturers, but made the decision to invest in MBO’s modular finishing system for our variable direct mail needs. It was the flexibility of this system and our excellent experience with our six MBO sheetfed folders that determined our choice,” said David Crandall, Denver general manager, 1Vision. “The ability to reconfigure the line to meet a variety of finishing requirements, along with a great service and support plan, is a huge benefit.”

MBO offers a wide variety of postpress modules that are mobile and interchangeable. Because they are not fixed solutions locked into one type of production, the modules can quickly be reconfigured as the job requires. To meet the flexibility needs of the commercial direct mail market, MBO’s modular technology is able to streamline production into a two-step operation that significantly reduces labor and speeds time to market three to four times faster than the previous shell workflow. The press produces roll-to-roll, which allows it to operate at its highest possible productivity. The finishing line operates roll-to-final product as a near line, taking out 2-3 steps compared to the prior offset shell workflow.

“It is extremely gratifying to expand our relationship with 1Vision with the addition of our Roll Fed Finishing Line,” said Lance Martin, vice president of marketing for MBO America and Komori America. “The commercial print and direct mail environment is a perfect fit for MBO’s roll fed solutions and we are pleased to be able to provide a solution that helps 1Vision meet the changing requirements of its clients.”
