Poddsprint enhances lamination with Foliant purchase
Friday, October 8, 2021
General commercial printer Poddsprint has invested in a Foliant Mercury 530NG laminator to enable it to turn lamination work around faster and manage longer run jobs.
The machine was supplied by Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS) and installed at the Whyteleafe, Surrey-based business at the end of August.
Family-owned Poddsprint is managed by third generation directors Michael, Richard, and Matthew Podd.
“We looked at the machine five years ago and decided to go for an alternative, but we have had some issues and regretted the decision ever since. We decided enough was enough and revisited the Foliant option,” said Matthew Podd.
“We liked the Foliant because of its build quality, speed, and ease of use. It is enabling us to complete the jobs we have better and faster.”
Poddsprint’s Mercury 530NG is a heavy-duty industrial laminating system, suitable for processing both digitally and litho printed B2+ sheets. It incorporates a Heidelberg suction feeder and a high-speed bump separator as standard.
Optional extras include double sided lamination, embossed laminating roller, and pallet stacker.
Podd concluded: “This is the second machine we have bought from IFS. They are really good to deal with and very helpful. I highly recommend them.”
Established in 1950, seven-staff Poddsprint supports local businesses and blue-chip operations with a wide range of litho, digital, and wide-format print services.
