The arrival of new equipment is a common scene at the Baker Labels factory in Brentwood. Managing Director Steve Baker continues his quest to invest and expand while encouraging and enthusing staff with printing inspiration. "We just love printing and there is always something new to learn, another technique or some advance in technology that excites us and inspires us. We've got vast experience in our team but have added young, fresh talent in recent months that have lots to learn. Investing in a diverse range of equipment will encourage them to test, trial and hone their skills so we continue to improve what we can offer customers in the future"
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.
Azonprinter, a worldwide manufacturer of digital inkjet solutions and Modico US, a leader in production and distribution of stamping and marking products, expanded their cooperation and strengthened their presence in the US market. After years of collaboration in Europe, Azon and modico US began demonstrating the Matrix series wide format flatbed digital inkjet printers at trade shows in North America starting the fall of 2017.
Vivid’s sales director Richard Marlow said, “The new Omni-Flow will laminate & foil up to 1000 SRA3 sheets unattended, saving both time and money. It’s a truly revolutionary product and can be set-up in seconds, at least 5 times quicker than traditional feeders.”
Huddersfield-based Swiftprint can now offer their customers a truly bespoke foiling service with its recent purchase of a Matrix Digital Foiling & Laminating System.
