Vivid installs four VeloBlade Nexus at Royal Mail

Finishing Solutions

Royal Mail set a record for one of the biggest ever orders placed at Vivid. Four VeloBlade Nexus wide format digital die cutting systems were installed in one week at Royal Mail during the month of March.

The mail and parcel delivery company purchased four VeloBlade Nexus – 2516 bespoke wide format digital die cutting systems, each with front end stack auto feeders for full system automation. The Nexus systems are initially to be utilised for the manufacture of York sleeves for Royal Mail’s roll containers across the business.

The installations were split across the group’s two super hub sites, two in Warrington and the other two at its Midlands super hub, based in Northampton, where more than one million items and parcels are processed daily.

Initial conversations regarding specifications lead to subsequent visits by the Royal Mail management team to Vivid’s showroom in Ashby, Leicestershire. Here, thorough material cutting was tested and completed, along with cut timing calculations to ensure that volumes could be completed in the required time frame.

The VeloBlade Nexus was seen as the perfect solution for The Royal Mail’s requirements, with Vivid’s responsiveness, flexibility and all-round ‘can do’ attitude being highlighted as strong contributing factors to securing the order.
