Diecut Global, the Preston based supplier and manufacturer of corrugated, packaging, print and print finishing machinery, has announced the installation of the largest Goldline Evolution in the world, installed in the UK at one of the largest print and communications companies in the country.
The company had already purchased a Goldline over five years ago. This has worked seamlessly on its production floor so it was only natural that when it was adding to its die cutting capabilities it choose the Goldline Evolution with this extreme format of sheet size: 3100 x 1900 and a maximum speed of 450 (600) sheets per hour.
The original Goldlne was introduced by Diecut Global eight years ago as an alternative to the traditional hand fed platen.
Steve Waterhouse, managing director of Diecut Global, said: ‘As a responsible machine manufacturer and someone who had sold hundreds of hand fed platens all over the world in the last 25 years, I knew the dangers of the original clamshell press. This was confirmed in recent history when people who simply operated them paid the highest price, on machines my old company had sold back when I was the sales director and co-owner of Crosland. I thought if I cannot bring to market a machine that not only does the same job but does it in a safe way, a way that jobs can be set up faster, it was easy for the operator to use and bring it to market at a comparable price to the old technology, then I was not doing my job.’
Diecut Global now has machines in many industries, cutting anything from display work, corrugated packaging, heat sealing plastic corrugated and cutting all grades of PVC. It has developed Goldlines to cut honeycomb board and thick foams to even kiss cutting vinyl.
