Vivid debuts new pneumatic wide-format laminator at Fespa
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Laminating system manufacturer Vivid Laminating Technologies has premiered its new pneumatic wide-format laminator, Easymount Air, at Fespa.
The patented system, which has been developed in-house by Vivid’s design team, will be commercially available in around three months time. It is being shown on the company’s stand (Hall 6, Stand U110) in a 1.6m-wide configuration although 1.2m, 1.4m and 2.1m variants will also be available.
The Leicestershire-based firm said the heavy-duty device is easy to use and guaranteed to be at the correct pressure at all times.
Vivid technical manager Gavin Ward said: “The new Easymount Air range is a breakthrough product in wide-format lamination. The air pressure that controls the roller allows you to mount and laminate with incredible accuracy.
“Our patented technology allows the roller to ‘float’ and lock in place. No other pneumatic wide-format lamination system can achieve this.
“Other pneumatic wide-format laminators lack any precision. Their rollers are either up or down, there’s nothing that controls how much actual pressure is being applied. Exact pressure is essential, as foam boards and Corex can be crushed and glass sheets cracked.”
Marketing communications manager David Smith added: “We know that there’s going to be a lot of people interested in wide-format coming to Fespa, which is why this is the best show for us to launch this machine at.”
The company is also showing its new Easymount Flow finishing table, which was launched in March.
The worktable, which has been designed specifically to complement the manufacturer’s Easymount laminators, sits at the same height as the exit plate of the Easymount, which means that vinyl, roll-up banners and foam boards exit the system and continue straight onto the table.
