Derby based commercial printer invest in new, automated laminating solution

Derby based commercial printer, Accent Commercial Resources, have this month invested in a new, automated laminating solution – the Matrix MX-530s Pneumatic Laminator by Vivid Laminating Technologies with an Omniflow Feeding unit.

Accent Commercial Resources is a commercial print supplier based in Sawley Park Industrial Estate, Derby. Their team work tirelessly to provide a fast turnaround design and print solution to local and national clients – producing a vast range of printed products ranging from every day business stationery right through to the most creative personalised Marketing Piece in addition to providing promotional gifts and large format Graphics. They pride themselves on producing quality print at competitive prices and getting it delivered on time, every time – and rely on the efficiency of industry-leading, digital printing and the latest finishing technology to make all of this possible.

Rhydian Pile, Director at Accent Commercial Resources, explained:

“Whilst we have always offered foil blocking as a business, we used to outsource this which was time consuming and often costly - having to pay a minimum charge for sometimes very short run quantities. This approach was very time consuming and wasn’t flexible enough for clients that only needed small print runs. We can offer a far more flexible service to our customers now that we have this capability in-house”.

Their new Matrix MX-530s Pneumatic Laminator is built using the highest quality components, including Omron switches and Schneider electrics, and can run up to twice the speed of standard laminating systems – delivering production runs of 2,500 sheets per hour. Pneumatic pressure rollers allow you to laminate certain substrates up to 50% quicker, saving both time and cost. What’s more, is the Matrix can handle B2 sheets for high volume laminating and foiling and can be combined with variable data solutions to create personalised, foil printed products.

Since investing in a new laminating system, the team at Accent Print are able to save time and be more productive when fulfilling customer orders. Rhydian said:

“The new Vivid Matrix Laminator is a lot faster than our previous model, which in turn enables us to be far more productive, and given the fast-paced environment we work in this will help us to maintain the fast-react service we offer to clients. The additional functionality of the machine allows us to offer short-run foil blocking to products such as menus, invitations and personalised certificates. Given that the new device feeds the sheets portrait rather than landscape, we can now achieve more meters of laminated produce per hour”.

Hugh Sutherland, Production Print Specialist at Document Network Services said:

“Rhydian has been a great customer of DNS for many years now – showing commitment, loyalty and a forward-thinking attitude to the world of print. In the Matrix MX-530s, Accent Commercial Resources have taken on industry-leading technology that is capable of producing glitter, gold, silver, holographic any many more foiled print products. This solution helps print suppliers to laminate faster, which in turn helps to reduce turnaround times. It’s an advanced piece of kit and we see our most innovative, forward thinking clients incorporating them into their businesses”.

Rhydian continued,

“Having worked in partnership with DNS for the last five years, they know my business needs well - and with the extended working relationships they hold with other market leading suppliers to the printing industry, I felt very confident in partnering with them for this investment”.
