The Italian-made Ecosystem machine should offer Who Printing a significant boost in productivity over its existing laminator; the old machine was B2 format and ran at 20 metres per minute while the new device is B1 and hits 60ppm.
Who Printing general manager Daniel Ogle told the PacPrint Daily that a job that would previously have taken 16 hours would take just three when running on the Ecosystem, ensuring faster turnarounds and reducing the man hours needed to finish work.
Ogle said the Ecosystem’s robustness, its quality output and the size of the laminating rollers had also swayed his decision to buy the machine from distributor Jet Technologies. “One of our selling features is quality so we want to partner with companies that provide good quality.”
Jet Technologies director Jack Malki echoed the comments about the celloglazer’s build quality. “We see a lot of laminators on the market built to a price. Ecosystem doesn’t do that – everything they manufacture is built to last.”
The celloglazer will be shipped to Who Printing’s Newcastle plant next week following the show.
Who Printing had previously bought film from one of Jet’s distributors in Newcastle, but this marks the first time they have had a direct relationship.
Visitors to Jet Technologies’s stand will also get to see what the exhibitor is calling “an Australian-first trade show innovation” – making visitors’ plates live at the show using Jet’s water-washable Asahi AWP DEF plate.
“All PacPrint visitors need to do is bring a graphic file of any job to the stand and they can walk away with the finished plate within 40 minutes. We will merely need graphic files on a USB in PDF format,” said Malki.
