The trend in the UK Sign and Banner making industry for 2011 is for printers to outsource less finishing and have all the benefits of increased profits and greater quality control by bringing their finishing in-house.
Solent Sewing & Welding's range of Miller Weldmaster and industrial sewing machines supplies a solution for sewing or welding 100% of the fabrics used in the sign and banner industry including digital textiles, mesh, PVC, PU, PE etc.
A family business, currently in its fourth generation and run by husband and wife duo Melanie and Ian Jenkins, Solent Sewing & Welding has been in the business of industrial sewing and fabric handling for nearly 50 years.
“Our Miller Weldmaster welding machines are the fastest on the market - precision heat sealing everything from tarpaulins, lorry curtains and the digital sign making market, all in the blink of an eye. We have found that the wide and super-wide format sign making industry had a need for faster machinery and the Miller Weldmaster range offers the ideal solution. We will be launching 2 new machines at Sign & Digital this year: the Miller Weldmaster 112 Extreme and Impulse Extreme with automatic folding device. For producers of signs, banners and billboards we can supply the right machine to maximise productivity and enhance quality. From simple banner hemming through to a complete automatic custom system which will hem, eyelet, reinforce and cut banners and billboards,” comments Ian Jenkins.
He adds, “Being able to offer welding solutions for recyclable (PE) and traditionally non-weldables using heat activated tape is an example of how we are pushing forward into the future. But above all, we set ourselves the target of providing the highest possible standards of customer service. Most of our customers have been with us for years and we have seen their businesses grow and prosper by helping all we can and going that extra mile.”
