DataMaster Lab Awards 2018, Award 7: Best Booklet Productivity

DataMaster Lab is the European centre of print expertise.  DataMaster Lab has been testing printing equipment since 2009.  The teams have tested multifunction printers, digital presses and A4 machines too.  They have carried out over 10,000 individual tests on 350 machines.

The Awards are for A3/Ledger MFPs in various segments.

Today’s Awards are for Best Booklet Productivity.

DataMaster Lab teams’ aim is to help you to tell the difference between machines.  Test personnel compare how a machine performs in real-world scenarios – compared to the data provided by the manufacturer’s marketing materials.

This award is for productivity when the machine folds and staples media of different formats to make booklets.   The evaluation comprises tests for booklets made using A4 paper in landscape format (A4R) and A3 – with and without covers of 160gsm.
