Drytac installs JetMounter JM63 Fuzion laminator at Newman Displays following prize draw win

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Bristol, UK - Drytac Europe, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, has installed a brand new JetMounter JM63 Fuzion laminator at Newman Displays following its ‘Win a Laminator’ prize draw.  The laminator was installed at London-based Newman Displays in January 2015.   

The Drytac prize draw, run in conjunction with the company’s exclusive UK & Ireland distributor Antalis, took place late last year following a promotion on Drytac’s range of pressure sensitive adhesives and overlaminates for the sign and display industry.  Customers purchasing Drytac products to a minimum value of £70 in May and June 2014 were automatically entered into the prize draw, with Newman Displays being the lucky winner.

Newman Displays has been in business for more than 30 years and markets itself as the UK's leading sign and display specialist for theatres and cinemas.   Offering a complete service – from initial surveys, visuals and planning applications through to installation and maintenance – Newman Displays’ signage and display solutions light up all the major theatres and cinemas of London’s West End.

The company offers a wide variety of output including large format digital printing, bespoke metalworking, 3D modelling, vinyl graphics, silk screen printing, neon signs, illuminated and non-illuminated signs, acrylic fabrication and LED digital display screens.  Newman Displays’ highly skilled operatives manufacture these solutions in-house at the company’s London production facility.

Drytac’s 1.6 metre wide JetMounter JM63 Fuzion, worth £5,999, is ideal for floor graphics, indoor signage, outdoor graphics, wall graphics and murals, window graphics and much more.  It has been designed to meet the needs of print service providers that want to add roll-to-roll laminating capabilities to their product offerings but at an affordable price.

The JM63 Fuzion comes ready equipped with top and bottom supply shafts with brake tension control, top and bottom wind-up shafts with adjustable cloth speed, and a heat assist top roller.  Newman Displays will be incorporating the functionality of the new JetMounter laminator into the production of a number of its signage applications.

Steve Broad, European Sales Director for Drytac Europe, and Colin Lilley, Key Account Manager for Antalis, presented the new machine to Gary Brooks and Dave Botterill from Newman Displays.  

On the prize draw competition, Steve Broad comments: “This was an exciting venture for both Antalis and Drytac, and I am thrilled to have been able to present Newman Displays with a brand new Drytac laminator as the winner of our joint competition.  Drytac’s in-house engineers personally installed the new machine and gave the operators an overview on how to get the best from it – a service which we offer with all new machines.”  

Colin Lilley, Key Accounts Manager at Antalis, adds: “We’re delighted to announce Newman Displays as the winner of the Drytac laminator – we had a great response to the competition we ran in conjunction with Drytac last year.  Antalis now supplies Drytac laminators and – coupled with our innovative product offer and wide distribution channels – we offer a complete solution.”

Steve Broad concludes: “Antalis was appointed as our exclusive UK & Ireland distributor in the summer of 2013, and has – as this scenario demonstrates – proved to be a very effective distribution partner for Drytac.  We are delighted that Newman Displays will get to enjoy all the benefits offered by our Fuzion laminator – free of charge! ”
