Unveiled at The Print Show UK and Print ’18 USA, the ColorFlare CF350 and CF750 join the CF1200 flagship model, creating a highly creative print finishing range – which will be shipping in volume from this month!
The ColoFlares are compact dual laminator and foil flaring solutions designed to offer commercial printers, marketers and designers in-house decorative effects. Primarily designed for short run, on-demand digital applications as well as lamination for traditional litho output, the ColorFlares open up new opportunities for the production of greetings cards, vouchers, security print, packaging, book jackets and labels etc.
Intec’s CF350 enters the market at an incredibly competitive price, offering the flexibility of laminating and foiling and with its softer feed rollers, great for foiling trickier items such as envelopes without any detrimental effects from the pressure required to achieve a fantastic foil finish.
Emulating its bigger brother, the CF750 offers three different set up options; as a desktop solution, with a stand and with the new dual feed roller assembly so lamination and foil rolls can be loaded together for exact material alignment and quicker production set.
The two new additions to the range also help by giving users access to the widest range of media at the best possible prices compared to typical desktop entry level or mid-range foiling or laminating solutions that employ one or two inch core rolls of foil or laminate, that are more expensive and harder to source. Intec’s ColorFlare range, is unique as it utilises an industry standard three inch core for both laminate and foils across its entire range making it easier and more cost effective for users to stock just one range of laminates and foils.
Coupled with the ColorSplash colour digital printer, the ColorFlare can foil flare directly onto printed toner and also onto lamination films creating extra special effects without expensive set up charges. Not limiting themselves to promoting this with the ColorSplash units only, Intec offers the ColorFlare to anyone who has a digital printer from any one of today’s major printer manufacturers.
“We were very encouraged by the incredible sales received from the launch of the flagship CF1200 and after extensive market research, discovered that there was a gap in the market for entry level solutions that utilised the more cost effective three inch core materials in the market, so we developed the smaller and more robust ColorFlare units” states Ian Melville, managing director at Intec Printing Solutions. “And with the production enhancing features such as the dual feed assembly, unique to Intec ColorFlares, we are offering some key advantages to their laminating and foiling facilities.”
ColorFlare is all about adding decorative effects to printed sheets – and adding extra value to print. By combining a ColorFlare with ColorSplash digital printer the results are limitless!
