DecTek ordered a Titanium-330-R reel-to reel label cutter in order to support the significant growth that it has experienced with digital labels.
DecTek, based in Pontypridd, signed a deal to purchase the Titanium 330R at the Fespa Global Print Expo held in Munich last month.
International Graphic Supplies (IGS), distributor for the UK & Ireland, will deliver the Titanium kit in August.
After the launch demonstration at Fespa, DecTek managing director Mike Beese said “this is a real game changer for the digital label market”. He then quipped to IGS managing director Peter Flynn: “That’s it, I’ve now ordered eight cutters from you – enough is enough!”
JWEI’s first digital label finishing line, the fully automatic RSF-330 is a 330mm-wide system that uses QR-codes to identify and automatically set-up cutting and cold lamination settings between jobs.
It has eight cutting head and is capable of cutting at up 12m/min. Maximum cutting size for this machine is 330×1,000mm. The waste is automatically removed, while other automated features are deviation correction, continuous cutting and sheeting.
“We could not have wished for a better first customer site for the Titanium 330-R than DecTek, we have an excellent business and personal relationship with the team,” said Flynn.
The machine costs £79,000 from IGS, including delivery, installation, training, and twelve months’ parts and labour warranty.
DecTek, a company that also operates Canon and Ricoh Digital Presses and Duplo or Vivid finishing kit along with its bank of Titanium Cutters, has recently installed an HP Latex Printer with white ink as well an Epson DTG Device.
