These photos were taken at the Knights of Columbus printing plant. The facility employs 23 people and produces 6 million pieces of mail each year. A few things stood out during my visit, first of which was how much the employees I spoke with enjoyed their jobs and working there. Another thing was how cool some of the machines are including the ability to print, fold, cut, bind etc… It takes a lot of ingenuity to create machines that can do those functions. Below are some of the photos I’ve taken during my visit.
|The foreman shows one of the pieces printed on the four color printer.|
|This is an interesting wood floor where they install 3 inch long pieces vertically. The reason is that when a normal horizontal wood floor is installed, it allows sound to travel.|
|This machine can cut and trim pieces such as the edges on these.|
|In the boxes above are films and plates that are reusable for printing although they no longer use films.|
|Rolls of paper.|
|This part of the machine flips the paper over to be printed on the other side.|
|They have very modern equipment as well.|
