Commercial printer Printdesigns has bought a Zund G3XL3200CVE from supplier Robert Horne to ease a bottleneck in it’s finishing department.
The Stafford based company installed a Vutek QS2000 flatbed printer in February 2010, leaving a cutting department struggling to keep up.
Printdesigns director Mark Thompson said “When we bought the new flatbed printer we saw a dramatic increase in output but found work was grinding to a halt, as we couldn’t convert the projects quickly enough.
The new cutter has allowed us to increase our channel of work on standard product conversion such as Opaljet for roller banners and pop up stands.
Printdesigns has also looked at new areas such as point of sale display stands, as well as looking at new substrates such as Robert Horne’s Honeycombed Board.
Printdesigns Zund features automated cutting and trimming functions, removing potential mistakes and improving efficiency, according to the company it can cut material up to 50mm thickness.
