|DecTek Installs 1.8 x 1.6 metre Titanium Cutter
DecTek is one of Europe’s premier manufacturers of domed resin labels, name badges and a range of specialist print products. They manufacture and supply printed items to many of the world's most famous brands reaching all parts of the globe from their manufacturing base in South Wales.
To facilitate their growth Dectek is expanding their in-house manufactured product portfolio to include floor and window graphics, stickers and labels, increased offerings of signage products and printed giveaway items such as fridge magnets.
To support this growth plan Dectek continues to invest heavily with numerous machines from Muto, Mimaki, Epson, Gerber and recently a Canon Colorado printer. Printing technology is complemented by cutters from Summa and Zund plus a bank of laser machines for plastics, metal and wood.
Mike Beese Managing Director at DecTek said “We had looked at a range of cutting machine manufacturers to add additional capacity to our existing Zund, but after thorough testing and visiting an existing Titanium customer site very close to our office (Zenith Print and Packaging), the Titanium 1816 stood out as robust, adaptable and very competitively priced".
The Titanium 1816 was purchased from International Graphic Supplies who are a Monmouthshire based machinery supplier, and are the Titanium distributor for UK and Ireland.
He continued “The IGS team managed the installation and training for the new cutter including optimising our workflow for the specific production needs and tasks of the varied customer requirements we receive on a daily basis. We are delighted with the machine so far.”
The Titanium series offers an impressive range of cutting tables that start with the Titanium 0604 and Titanium 0906, ideal choices for the digital print market such as Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Xerox, HP Indigo, SRA3 and B2 litho presses and come with full automatic as standard.
For the wide format print market cutting tables are available from 1.1 x 1.3 up to 3.0 x 3.2 metres.
With an automatic precision cutting tool, the exact cutting depth can be achieved quickly, precisely and efficiently.
Supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters is a high resolution registration camera which ensures cutting printed jobs accurately to register.
A range of specialty tools are supplied with each cutter. These tools offer speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, textiles, carpet, wood and a long list of plastics.
Peter Flynn, Managing Director IGS comments " We are gaining significant traction amongst many blue ship companies including DecTek. Printing.Com, Phillips Digital, Zenith Print and Packaging, and Booths Printing who have identified our price/performance as hard to match”.
We are busy with orders and enquiries from prospects who require a cutting solution to accommodate the surge in their order intake for social distancing signage on carpets and floor graphics and are looking for an affordable alternative to the main stream digital cutting suppliers.”
