Interprint enhances lamination with Foliant Mercury
Interprint has enhanced its in-house lamination services with investment in a B2+ Foliant Mercury 530SF laminator from Intelligent Finishing Systems.
The Swindon general commercial printer works closely with design agencies.
Production manager Shawn Martin said, ‘We brought our lamination in-house with a smaller system, but it soon became clear we needed a more productive solution to manage the work.
‘We looked at other laminators on the market but the Foliant stood out. It ticked a number of boxes including faster operation.’
Among the reasons the company chose the B2+ Mercury 530SF heavy duty industrial laminating system, was its Heidelberg suction feeder. Shawn said, ‘The better feeder head means it can run slightly quicker. There is also a better snap between sheets and an improved decurler.’
The affordable addition of foiling capabilities with the Foliant Multi-functional Inprinting Unit was another plus. Shawn continued, ‘We work with a lot of design agencies and we will now be able to offer them additional foiling services in a cost effective way.’
