DDL Group Brings Print Lamination In-House with Matrix


Cheshire based print, design and mailing specialist, DDL Group, recently invested in new print finishing equipment from Vivid Laminating Technologies. The purchase included a Matrix MX-370P Lamination, Foiling and Spot UV Effects system along with the dedicated Omni-Flow Deep Pile Feeder. The system was installed, and staff trained by Vivid.

Prior to the purchase, DDL were regularly outsourcing lamination which tied-up resources in terms of transporting printed materials to and from the supplier, typically taking a day or two to turn around. Any delays at the supplier caused a knock-on effect on their own lead time that was beyond their control and which could negatively impact on their customers experience of DDL. A decision was made to bring lamination services in-house to remove the reliance on a third-party and the search for a suitable system began.

"Having been recommended this system we knew Vivid would be a reliable partner and, now that the system is up and running, overall we believe the Matrix system will prove to be a sound investment allowing us to better serve our customers"

create stunning foiling and Spot UV effects

Matrix Pneumatic and Matrix Duplex systems offer fast and reliable laminating but are also able to create stunning foiling and Spot UV effects without the need for a die; making them ideal for short-medium run digital print. The Omni-Flow deep pile feeder with its 180mm stack depth allows easy swap-over of paper stocks and autonomous machine operation freeing up a print operative to work on other jobs simultaneously. The Omni-Flow can be retro-fitted to any Matrix Pneumatic or Duplex system as a cost-effective upgrade from manual to auto feed.
