Vivid Laminating Technologies will use next week’s Print Show to launch new models of its award-winning Matrix Laminating Systems, introduce new colours of its special effect foils and debut a completely unique technology.
A double-sided 370 Duplex system will be introduced for the first time at The Print Show.
Able to laminate, foil and create Spot UV-style effects on SRA3 portrait sheets, the new system is a smaller format model of the award-winning 530 version.
According to Vivid, there has been a huge demand for a smaller double-sided laminator from both end-users and the companies network of distributors in the UK & worldwide.
Vivid also launched the Auto-Feeder for the 530 models at drupa earlier this year. Such has been the success of the retrofit system, all SRA3 portrait models can now also be fully automated with the new 370 Auto-Feeder, with next week’s show marking the exclusive launch of the new add-on.
The Matrix is ideal for short-to-medium run jobs, and with the Auto-Feeder now available across the complete range, prints can be top loaded ‘on the run’, saving both time and money.
Boss Special Effect Foils, Metallized Print and Spot UV Film
Vivid’s Boss Premium Foil range allows metallized effects to be added to packaging and print. The foiling and overprintable coloured foils work by combining the Matrix and a digital printer.
With foils already available in a huge range of colours, The Print Show will see Vivid launch a number of new finishes. The new over-printable holographic foil can produce incredible print effects and its new pure white foil essentially replicates the ability to ‘print white’.
Easycoat & Easyguide
Vivid is also asking whether customers would see an immediate business benefit to their products feeling thicker when digitally printed and state they have the solution.
The firm will be introducing 2 new technologies at the show. The new Easycoat is a SRA3-size gluing system that adds a layer of adhesive to media. Layers can then be added one-by-one to create a thick substrate that can be used for many applications, including book covers and luxury, high quality business cards.
The glued layers are then placed in the new Easyguide, a unique carrier tray which can then be passed through the Easymount, adhering and fixing the glued layers in place by using the systems mounting capabilities. The patented Easyguide gives an incredible level of accuracy and precision.
