I work in the copy center of a National Luxury Retailer headquartered in Downtown Dallas. I have two Canon imageRunner black & white copier/printers, and a Xerox DocuColor 240 color copier/printer. I currently have orders for color copies/prints in-house totaling over 32k impressions. My 240 just went down. It needs the IBT assembly replaced. Apparently they're only good for 1 million impressions. I have over 5 million on my printer, and don't recall the IBT assembly ever being replaced. Oh, and the DocuColor 240 is only designed to run between 10k & 40k impressions per month. I've already made >62k this month. I've worn out parts that the Xerox engineers say are supposed to last the life of the machine. The tech tells me that he's trying to find an IBT assembly in the area, and also has one on order for me, but the one on order won't arrive until Monday, and it'll probably take him at least a half-day to install it. So there's 2 days of productivity down the drain.
Oh well, back to GBC binding.
