Emerge Advertising in Titanium install
Thursday, November 24, 2022
Emerge Advertising has invested in a Titanium 2516 cutting table with router from International Graphics Supplies (IGS) to ease a finishing bottleneck caused by manual cutting processes.
The 2.5x1.6m device was installed at the end of October at the roadside and large-format media owner’s site in Llanelli, Wales.
Emerge Advertising owner Shaun Jones said: “We had looked at a range of cutting machines but, after thorough testing and following visits to Titanium customer sites DecTek – who have five Titaniums – and The Colour House, the Titanium 2516 stood out as robust, adaptable and very competitively priced.
“Our Mimaki UV flatbed and Canon Colorado printers combined with the IGS Titanium 2516 cutter has enabled us to offer a range of signage and banner options to our varied customer base which include the BBC, Open University, Halifax, The Trade Centre, and Screwfix.
“The IGS team managed the installation with ease; we were in production within six hours of the Titanium arriving onsite. The training for the new machine, including optimising the router for a wide range of rigid materials, has been excellent.”
The Titanium cutter features automatic precision tool cutting depth, which IGS said enables the correct cutting depth to be achieved quickly, precisely, and efficiently.
A registration camera, which is supplied as standard, ensures that printed jobs are cut accurately to register. The camera can recognise any type of mark on the printed material using a high-resolution camera mounted to the tool-head.
A range of speciality tools supplied with the machine enables it to handle a wide variety of materials, such as corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, wood, and various plastics.
