Duplo scores a cutting half century in Glasgow
The Print Teaching unit at the City of Glasgow College has become the 50th UK installation of the IDEAL 5222 Digicut 520cm hydraulic guillotine.
Launched just over three years ago by Duplo International, the company says its IDEAL 5222 has become a favourite amongst copy shops and digital printers because of its competitive price tag, hydraulic clamping, space-saving design and ease of use.
Some 40,000 students are enrolled at the City of Glasgow College and each year around 200 of these pass through the Print Teaching department. The college offers a range of courses including an NQ in screen printing designed to equip students with the necessary skills to go straight into industry and a choice of HNC and HND courses in digital media and creative print making which can be a stepping stone to higher education within the creative trades. All the courses are a combination of theory and practice, with students getting a complete hands-on education on all the equipment.
The guillotine, which was supplied by local company Well Finished, will mostly be used for the finishing of booklets and swatch books produced by the students.
