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.
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.
