Supplied by Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS), the 25m/min machine has been installed at Swindon-based Interprint’s premises in the last few months. It has replaced a Bagel Systems B2 DigiFav laminator, which was installed in 2014 and has now been part exchanged.

 

Interprint production manager Shawn Martin said: “We brought our lamination in-house with a smaller system, but it soon became clear we needed a more productive solution to manage the work.

 

The company looked at a range of options available on the market, including alternatives from Duplo, but Martin said the Foliant “ticked a number of boxes”.

 

One of the major benefits he cited was the machine’s Heidelberg suction feeder.

 

The firm’s machine was specified with the Foliant multi-functional Inprinting Unit, which is said to make foiling and spot varnish fast and affordable for short-run and personalised print.

 

This unit runs a wide range of colours including gold, silver, red and green as well as a clear gloss for spot varnish. It is suitable for applications ranging from corporate stationery to POS and book covers.

 

The Foliant kit joins a B2 Komori Lithrone 28 five-colour plus coater, three Ricoh digital printers – two Pro C9100s and a Pro C901, and an EFI Vutek GS3250LX Pro at Interprint’s site.

 

The £2.5m-turnover business has 26 staff and produces a wide range of general commercial print, including flyers and leaflets, folders, postcards, posters, brochures, business cards, letterheads, catalogues, POS, exhibition stands, banners and signage.
