In House Versatility

Foliant Taurus

Merthyr Tydfil general commercial printer Rainbow Print (Wales) Ltd, which is celebrating its 30th year in business, has invested in a B2 Foliant Taurus laminator from Intelligent Finishing Systems, following a visit to Ipex.

We were sending all our lamination out and getting a great service,” explains Darren Roberts, joint owner with Hayley Jones. “But when we put the Linoprint C751 digital press in last summer the need to turnaround short run work, faster, became clear. We wanted to be able to capitalise on the business essence of digital print and sending work out impacted turnaround times and the cost of jobs. Now we can be more responsive and cost competitive for both digital and litho print. We considered other systems and had a good look at a couple when we visited Ipex. We liked the fact it had a feeding head and is very versatile. It also warms up very quickly and the need to print so many overs is reduced which is a benefit to the company and our clients. The Foliant Taurus is so simple to use that we have a few members of staff trained to operate it so they can hop on and off as the work demands. I expect productivity to increase significantly. We noticed an uplift within the first few weeks of it being installed. It will also make us more versatile by offering a lamination service in house. Clients more than ever demand quick turnaround, quality print and an exceptional service we have already had more work placed by those looking for just that.
