Pelican Print provides in-house pre-press, litho, digital and large format printing from their two sites, both based in Aylesbury. With a history spanning 20 years, they are very much in the present when it comes to innovation, and recently purchased an ESKO Kongsberg X24 Starter from CMYUK, the UK's largest independent supplier of large format digital printers, cutting equipment and materials.
“We were looking for a way to bring a new aspect to the company” says Scott Brookes, Managing Director at Pelican Print, “The X24 is definitely going to give us that competitive edge. The price point was right and due to it being modular, we can grow the machine with our business. CMYUK has been great every step of the way; from Sales to great on-site training. We can’t wait to get started on some new projects in 2019.”
Pelican Print has used their new Kongsberg X24 for this year’s Christmas campaign, which involved creating a calendar and festive box.
Pelican Print has kick-started their new era by producing a unique Christmas box in-house for all of their customers with a selection of items that showcase some of their new capabilities with a wonderfully festive approach.
Sarah Winterbottom, Senior Digital Sales Consultant at CMYUK, says “It has been a pleasure working with / supplying Pelican Print again after supporting them into the world of digital ten years ago. They were one of the more forward-thinking litho printers at the time, becoming an early adopter, and it’s great to see them going from strength to strength.”
With a working area of 1680mm x 3200mm, the Kongsberg X24 Starter comes with the MultiCUT tool head offering milling productivity, camera system and two open modules where a variety of different tool inserts can be fitted allowing for quick turn around on a wide range of materials.
