Hollywood Monster has invested in Miller Weldmaster 112 Extreme combined heat welding, eyeleting and cutting, finishing machine supplied by Solent.
Hollywood Monster managing director, Tim Andrews says: “We first saw the 112 Extreme at an American show and since then we always had it in mind to invest at some point in the future. On winning a £1m contract to supply and install a large amount of digital print in London during May and June producing vinyl & PVC dressings/graphics, large format banners and street dressings in Eco friendly materials, we didn’t need to look at anything else; it was obvious it was the right machine for the job and the future direction of the company.”
Andrews believes that eco friendly materials are quickly replacing the current PVC ranges and therefore hot wedge or hot air welds may become the preferred way to join the type of large format prints the company produces. Also, the automated cutting technology that the Miller Weldmaster 112 provides for large format banners solves a big issue.
“We need to get people off their hands and knees on the floor," says Andrews. So all in all, as with most printers, the finishing department has always been a bottleneck and this (Miller Weldmaster 112) will give us at least double finishing capacity, an improvement in quality of cutting, and allow us to print onto a wider range of materials and generally increase throughput.”
