Go Cre8 speeds up its finishing processes
Liverpool-based Go Cre8 recently purchased a Zünd cutter to improve its efficiency in the finishing processes. The company, which was previously doing all its finishing by hand,says that the new machine has been a ‘game-changer’ for both quality and production efficiency.
The second-user Zünd PN L-2500 precision cutting table, which was installed in October 2018 by Zünd UK, works seamlessly in conjunction with Go Cre8’s range of HP Latex and Oce Arizona printers via the Onyx Thrive RIP software.
Founded in 2003 and now employing a full time staff of seven, Go Cre8 is a multidisciplinary design and print company providing professional services to a diverse customer base, ranging from small businesses, bars and restaurants through to large building developers and hotels.
Commenting on the selection of the Zünd cutter, Darryn Kennerley, of Go Cre8 explaine: “We looked at a lot of different finishing machines and based our decision on their flexibility, ease of use for operators and their fit within our current workflow. The Zünd machine was the obvious choice in each case.”
When asked to list the improvements that have followed the installation of the Zünd cutter, Darryn responded: “The turnaround time and the final quality of print and cut items has massively improved. Around 70 percent of our production is now finished on the Zünd, which is processing everything from small format labels, to print cut and polished acrylic signs. Now That we’ve reduced the finishing times for most items, we’re looking at other markets – such as packaging, which we’d previously outsourced.
“We would definitely recommend Zünd cutters to other print businesses. They work seamlessly with most RIPs to form part of an effective print and cut workflow and are very adaptable, allowing us to easily swap between different substrates.”
Nicki Kay, Managing Director of Zünd UK, added: “Our cutting systems are affordable for all manner of sign and print companies and enable them to transform their finishing operation, ultimately speeding up the whole production process. The reliability, longevity and modularity of the systems ensure that any investment in Zünd technology is an investment well made.”
