Leading Midlands-based provider of large format print, Colour Graphics, have recently branched out in to the fast growing market for digitally printed fabrics and soft signage.
To meet the increasing demand for printed textiles created since their recent install of an MTEX 5032 printer, the next logical step for Colour Graphics was an investment into a large format finishing machine.
After looking at a number of machines on the market they opted for an ELC Premiumcut machine from Bullmer. A decision based in large part on a demonstrated ability to handle the cutting and finishing of an extensive range of different textiles and materials.
James Birch, Managing Director at Colour Graphics says, “We have seen a huge increase in business from the fabric market and we have had to invest into new cutting technology to cope with the demand.”
“The Bullmer cutting machine has enabled us to increase productivity and expand even further into the fabric printing market – ultimately this has led to us creating a whole new business division, FABRIX, that is focused exclusively on the development of textile print opportunities.”
James continues, “The 3.2m x 3.2m ELC cutter was a perfect fit, as it comes with an automatic unwinding system for fabric tension control and a variety of tools to handle a wide range of different materials. It also delivers outstanding speed and quality. The cutter also uses Optiscout software with a camera interface for job imports, making it a very open and versatile cutting and finishing solution.”
Overall Colour Graphics, and their new FABRIX brand, can now offer customers a better finished product in faster delivery times, covering flags, banners, stretch materials, tensioned fabric systems and more.
