Bayliss Design & Print invests in new finishing kit
By Melanie Defries Friday, 17 August 2012
Bayliss Design & Print has installed a Polar 115 guillotine after moving from an SRA2 to an SRA1 print format.
The Worksop-based company chose the new machine, which will replace a seven-year-old Polar 78, for its added flexibility and to make cutting larger sheets much easier.
The £52,000 investment in the guillotine, which was installed two weeks ago, came after the £1.5m-turnover company bought an SRA1 Ryobi five-colour press 18 months ago.
Bayliss Design & Print managing director Alan Johnson said: "We decided more than a year ago that we were going to change format, as we found that most of the demand was for SRA1 work, and installing the Ryobi press was the first step in that direction.
"We then needed to replace our Polar 78 guillotine because although it can do most things, it can not cut in half long-ways or trim an A1 poster. So far we are very pleased with the new 115."
The 22-staff family-run company, which was founded in 1953, specialises in printing magazines, brochures, leaflets, posters and folders.
