Oasis Graphic Co. based in Berkshire and working on a global platform, specialises in large format digital printing used in exhibitions, live events, retail environments and workplace branding. With dedicated departments for each area of work, they offer a bespoke tailored service complimented by years of knowledge in digital printing and graphic solutions.
Working with clients such as Wagamama, Nike and Sky, producing high-quality materials and working to tight deadlines is key to their success. Having an existing digital cutter, Oasis knew of the benefits that digital cutting brings to their business. After a thorough investigation into all of CMYUK’s cutting solutions they decided that the Kongsberg C series gave the best performance and quality for both their rigid and roll materials.
Simon Osborne, Managing Director at Oasis, says: “Previously we suffered from bottlenecks on finishing so it was clear to us that this was an area we needed to invest in – to smooth out that section of the production process. CMYUK’s experience in the industry and knowledge of the individual devices was great, and we decided to purchase the The ESKO Kongsberg C64 which instantly made things more efficient and increased productivity. The high powered 4.2KW router spindle on the machine gives much more flexibility to us for materials that require routing.”
The Kongsberg C series machines are the fastest digital cutters on the market. Cutting speeds of 100m/min allow even quicker finishing of a massive range of materials. The extensive range of tooling available also allows a wide range of material substrates to be finished on the same machine. It can handle rigid materials up to a dimension of 3210mm wide by 3200mm long; using the conveyorised bed, roll media can theoretically be cut to an infinite length. Utilising the optional diamond polishing results in immaculate polished edges on acrylic materials.
Simon adds “CMYUK are flexible and accommodating – a great partner to have. Our experience of dealing with them has always been good and the relationship keeps improving.”
The digital cutting machine was purchased through a CSAF agreement – the simple purchasing solution that CMYUK has developed in conjunction with Paragon Bank Business Finance, offering highly competitive lending rates.
“We were delighted that Oasis decided to purchase the C Series machine from CMYUK. Listening to their requirements, we understood that they needed a fast, versatile and reliable machine to complete their finishing department, the Kongsberg C series delivers just that!” says Nick Reed, Esko Business Manager at CMYUK
