|Express Encapsulation install Comet
Express Encapsulation, the Bristol-based trade encapsulation specialist and laminating film supplier, has installed a new purpose built encapsulating machine. The high-speed Comet from D&K will assist in increased demand for its encapsulating service.
Allen King, the firm's Managing Director, said the new machine could cope with run lengths in the millions.
Mr King said “We chose D&K to build the machine for us not just because of our long history, but also because we knew we could rely on the build quality and excellent after-sales service.”
When asked about the bespoke build of the machine Mr King said: “We have worked very closely with D&K on this over many months to ensure it incorporated several features that our experienced machine operators’ recommended. We recognised that they are the guys who run the equipment so they should have a major say in the build.”
The Comet has been linked to a bespoke feeder and has a working width of up to 540mm. Also featured is a built-in scrap trim rewind unit, plus an integral catch tray to collect guillotined centre waste.
“I believe that we now have the fastest encapsulating machine in the country” King said, “It is an extremely high-speed piece of equipment. We already have many large fully automatic encapsulating lines which are currently used to capacity, now with the introduction of the Comet, we have the potential increase it still further.”
Express Encapsulation are one of the largest trade houses in the UK also supply the print trade with digital and litho laminating films compatible with every make and model of laminating machine on the market today.
