Finishing World

Wolverhampton based design and print specialists, Hughes Print, recently became Vivid Laminating Technology Ltd.’s first customer for their new 20 metre-per-minute Matrix MX-530S along with an Omni-Flow Deep Pile Auto Feeder. Hughes already had a Matrix MX-530P and were impressed by the quality and consistency of its output and so when it came to increasing their in-house capacity they looked to Vivid for a solution.

Paul Reeve, Managing Director, at Structure-flex Ltd, looks at the lamination process and explains how it helps to improve the appearance and life of a digital printed lorry curtain.

Elitron’s dual gantry cutting system, Kombo TH, reaches new heights in productivity, flexibility and smart workflow management. It is now possible to work using 1 working area (3100 x 2000 mm) or divide the 3100mm width into 2 separate customized working areas, each with an independent gantry and cutting head. The automatic 40-sector vacuum system proportionally divides the sectors between the 2 customized working areas, to ensure the perfect hold of all media in both areas.

At Fespa 2018 Zünd is exhibiting a wide range of high-performance, multi-functional cutting systems configured for efficient, automated finishing. Solutions from the Swiss market leader are on display in various locations, including at Zünd booth B50 in Hall 1.2, in the Digital Corrugated Experience Zone, and at several booths of Zünd partners.

On Stand A50, Graphtec GB will demonstrate new, recently launched and existing plotter/cutters for a wide range of sign and graphics and digital printing applications.

On Stand F20, AXYZ International will demonstrate the Trident hybrid CNC combined routing and cutting print finishing system. This powerful production workhorse enables large-format sign and graphics and print finishing specialists to increase output by as much as 50 per cent by comparison with standard CNC routers, whilst obviating the need for investment in two separate machines to carry out these dual requirements.

GCC, a global forefront equipment-manufacturing provider in the visual communication industry, is excited to present the Puma IV series.

The analog-to-digital transformation is sweeping through the sign, display and corrugated markets as sign providers and corrugated converters look beyond their production equipment to find an automated end-to-end workflow that ensures faster time to market, fewer errors and improved profitability. Waste can be created everywhere; via complex manual steps, equipment idle time, incorrect material handling or lack of workflow control. Many providers are seeking to eliminate waste and streamline the process from a design request coming in to shipping out a product. At FESPA 2018, they will find the path to this improved productivity and profitability at Esko Stands 3.2-C48 and 5.2-D30 during the 15 to 18 May event in Berlin.
