Hampton Printing installs Titanium 2516 CAD cutter
Bristol based Hampton Printing has chosen a Titanium digital CAD cutting Table from International Graphic Supplies to further its growth in the packaging and wide format sectors.
Mike Malpas, managing director at Hampton, commented: ‘One of our goals for 2021 is to continue to expand our portfolio of packaging and wide format services. It was therefore vital that we acquired a Digital CAD table with multiple functionalities and high precision. IGS demonstrated the capabilities of the Titanium Series, and through consultation we focused on the Titanium 2516 Conveyor model.’
Peter Flynn, managing director IGS commented on the installation, ‘Hampton Printing has the highest reputation for print precision and quality, having listened to its requirements, we felt the Titanium 2516 would be the perfect fit. Included in the 2516 model are a wide variety of tools including drag knife and multiple creasing wheels for packaging prototypes, oscillating knife for heavier substrates such as corrugated boards and Foamex, and a kiss cutting tool for labels and stickers. We can also offer a routing tool with extraction, which we are able to retro fit to the 2516 when Hampton has the requirement to cut Dibond or Acrylic in the future.’
Mike Malpas continued, ‘The Titanium 2516 has already allowed us to offer an innovative range of packaging prototypes, both for existing and new customers. We are also able to satisfy short run cut/crease and kiss cutting productions, which complements our small format digital capabilities.
‘The large cutting bed at 2.5 x 1.6 metres includes a conveyor belt system, and we are now able to offer a range of wide format products including wall/floor and window graphics.
‘An added bonus was that the high precision drag knife allows us to cut our Heidelberg litho coating blankets to create intricate varnish areas.’
