Midland Regional Printers enhances its die-cutting capacity with an Easymatrix
We are pleased to announce we have just invested and installed a brand new Heidelberg Easymatrix die-cutter to run alongside our existing Sanwa die-cutter. We feel we offer our clients a complete end to end solution for their products, and believe this machine will offer better support to our existing clients as well as open up new sales opportunities.
MRP – our family run packaging and label company has been in business for close to 50 years and are pleased to serve big brand market retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Speedo and Slimming World, plus many more illustrious clients. We recently installed a Speedmaster XL 106-6+L to operate alongside a similarly specified Speedmaster CD 102, therefore we needed to invest in the die-cutting area to keep up with our increased volume of work.
Our Managing Director Steve Bates, Michael Tew our Technical Director and an experienced machine operator went to the Heidelberg Packaging Centre at Wiesloch, Germany for a demonstration of the EasyMatrix die-cutter. After rigorous testing, results were impressive, leading us to invest and acquire this up to date die-cutter. “This is a machine that will give us significantly shorter make-ready times, a faster mechanical speed, increased overall output and will without doubt complement our presses with its similar running style.” says Catherine Tew.
The Easymatrix is a 7,700sph machine which can handle stocks of 90 to 2,000gsm (and corrugated up to 4mm thickness) and in formats from 400 x 360mm to 1060 x 760mm. It is a very automated model and the stripping station takes away the waste to increase efficiency.
Packaging is just one part of the Midland Regional Printers portfolio. It also offers complete product design, commercial print, self-adhesive labels and in-house finishing with storage and distribution options.
Paul Thompson, product specialist for Heidelberg UK, says: “The Easymatrix is great for Midland Regional Printers and their applications. We see this as a very versatile and affordable model which suits a range of applications including packaging, greetings cards and POS.”
