Vivid announce huge cost-saving product launches at drupa

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Vivid Laminating Technologies will introduce two new additions to it’s Matrix systems at drupa, alongside a new wide format foiling laminator and a range of special effect foils 

Matrix Auto-Feeder

The new Auto-Feeder can be fitted to the Matrix Laminating Systems and frees up operators to complete other jobs quickly and efficiently.

With the Auto-Feeder the Matrix gives customers an even greater return on their investment. Prints can be loaded ‘on the run’ for non-stop operation.

Aimed at the digital/commercial markets, short-to-mid run business cards, menus, book covers, bespoke prints and more can all be finished faster.

High-Speed Matrix

The award-winning Matrix Laminators will also see a new high-speed model added to the range, allowing larger volume runs to be laminated faster and saving on production costs by finishing in-house.

The new system runs at up to 66ft a minute and will also be fully compatible with the new Auto-Feeder. 

Boss Special Effect Foils, Metalized Print and Spot UV Film

Vivid’s NEW Boss Premium Foil range allows metalized effects to be added to prints. The foiling and overprintable colored foils work by combining the Matrix and a digital printer.

Detailed, quality foiling prints can be created in-house, without expensive set-up charges and traditional block foiling, which represents a fraction of the cost compared to outsourcing.

Vivid is adding to their Boss print effect range, with holographic films. This opens many new avenues of income for Matrix users, including security print, vouchers, personalized items & tickets, as well as the packaging and label markets.

The Matrix is the most cost-effective digital laminator on the market and is a far more valuable must-have system for the modern day digital printer. With lamination, foiling, Spot UV and new metalized print effects, 4 separate avenues of income make the Matrix a real option to produce incredible finishes, adding even more value to print jobs. 


The Easymount Air, recently awarded Top Product for 2016 by readers of Wide-Format & Signage magazine, will also see a new model launched at the Düsseldorf show. The Easymount AirFoil features independent pneumatic rollers, allowing it to foil and add spot UV-style effects to wide format prints, foam boards, glass and MDF.

Metalized effects open up new markets for wide format printers. These can be overprinted onto UV or solvent-based prints. Customers working in the point-of-sale, packaging and decorative markets will benefit by saving money every time they create a large format product.
