Sherwood Universal selects a Titanium cutter from IGS

Sherwood Universal selects a Titanium cutter from IGS
Digital print specialists Sherwood Universal has invested in a Titanium 2.5 x 1.6 metre cutting table from International Graphic Supplies (IGS), to eliminate a finishing bottleneck arising from the installation of a Jetrix Large Format UV flatbed printer.

The Nottingham-based company has enjoyed a significant increase in wide-format sales since the installation of the Jetrix printer, but this led to a bottleneck forming when it came to print finishing, which was being carried out manually.

David O’Neil, Managing Director at Sherwood Universal said: “We had looked at a range of cutting machines but, after thorough testing and speaking with existing Titanium users, the Titanium 2516 cutter stood out as it combined a robust build, adaptability and, most importantly, a very competitive price!

“The Jetrix and IGS Titanium 2516 combination has enabled us to offer a varied range of products, including short-run and prototype packaging, point of sale displays, kiss-cut labels and various social distancing products.

“Before the Titanium 2516 installation, we had to outsource cutting, which added days to the delivery time. Now clients visit our office and we can make one-off packaging designs on the fly during their visit, which is a significant benefit.

“The IGS team managed the installation with ease and we were in production mode within hours of delivery. The training for the new machine, including optimising the router for a wide range of rigid materials and the rotary knife, for our short-run and prototype textile customers, has been excellent”.

The Titanium series offers an impressive range of cutting tables that starts with the Titanium Titanium 0806 for the B3 and B2 Digital Print and Litho Press users looking to enter the lucrative short-run packaging market, while for the Wide Format Print customer, cutting tables are available from 1.1 x 1.3 up to 3.5 x 2.0 metres.

With an automatic precision cutting tool, the exact cutting depth can be achieved quickly, precisely and efficiently. In addition, a high-resolution registration camera is supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters to ensure consistently accurate cutting.

A range of specialty tools is also supplied with each cutter. These tools offer the speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as Dibond, corrugated cardboard, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, textiles, wood and a long list of plastics.

Peter Flynn, Managing Director at IGS commented: “I’m very pleased to see Sherwood Universal is already enjoying the many benefits of moving to a Titanium cutter. As David has identified, our price/performance is hard to match and this powerful combination is allowing us to build a very impressive portfolio of customers.

“Our showroom is also busy with demonstrations for prospects looking to invest in a digital cutter and UV flatbed printer to meet their customers’ requirements for short-run packaging and social distancing signage.”
