Hampton Printing, the Bristol based multi-award winning printer, whose clients include luxury car marques, fashion, lifestyle brands, and luxury retailers, has chosen the Titanium Digital CAD Cutting Table from International Graphic Supplies who are a Monmouthshire based machinery supplier, to further its growth in the packaging and wide format sectors.
Mike Malpas, Managing Director at Hampton comments, ‘’One of our goals for 2021 is to continue to expand our portfolio of packaging and wide format services. It was therefore vital that we acquired a Digital CAD table with multiple functionalities and high precision. IGS demonstrated the capabilities of the Titanium Series, and through consultation we focused on the Titanium 2516 Conveyor model’’
Peter Flynn, Managing Director IGS comments on the installation ‘’Hampton Printing have the highest reputation for print precision and quality, having listened to their requirements we felt the Titanium 2516 would be the perfect fit. Included in the 2516 model are a wide variety of tools including, drag knife and multiple creasing wheels for packaging prototypes, oscillating knife for heavier substrates such as corrugated boards and Foamex, and a Kiss cutting tool for labels and stickers. We can also offer a routing tool with extraction, which we are able to retro fit to the 2516 when Hampton has the requirement to cut Dibond or Acrylic in the future’’
Mike Malpas continued ‘’The Titanium 2516 has already allowed us to offer an innovative range of packaging prototypes, both for existing and new customers. We are also able to satisfy short run cut/crease and kiss cutting productions, which complements our small format digital capabilities.
The large cutting bed at 2.5 x 1.6m metres includes a conveyor belt system, and we are now able to offer a range of wide format products including wall/floor and window graphics. An added bonus was that the high precision drag knife allows us to cut our Heidelberg Litho Coating blankets to create intricate varnish areas’’.
Peter Flynn IGS "I’m very pleased to see Hampton are already enjoying the many benefits of moving to a Titanium cutter. As Mike identified our price / performance is hard to match, and this powerful combination is allowing us to building a very impressive portfolio of customers. Our showroom is also busy with online 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.”
