We have invested in new machinery at our Uckfield site to further enhance our finishing capabilities. The new kit increases capacity and improves speed to market across a variety of finishing outputs.
Installation of a Muller Martini Alegro A7 binder, MBO K8 folder, Polar 137 auto trim guillotine, Meccanotechnica Astronic 180 thread sewer and Kisun layflat binder has enhanced our ability to produce bound books alongside our investments in our special finishes division. In addition, new wire binding capacity has been installed with an auto punching and enclosing machine providing faster, more productive and more efficient production.
Craig Berresford, Manufacturing Director at Pureprint says “The new high speed folder has been brought in to complement our current folding line up and gives us more folding capacity. Capacity that will be put to great use with the recent purchases of a Kinsun layflat binder and Astronic sewing machine. The new Muller Martini Alegro has seen running speeds improve dramatically thus also needing the extra folded sections. By bringing in these new machines and all the new kit together means we have increased capacity which translate into larger runs and being able to be more flexible for our clients.”
These investments further enhance the products we produce in house including personalised on-demand products whilst increasing our capacity, speeding up production and lowering our operation’s environmental impacts which is a key objective for the business.
Mark Handford, CEO at Pureprint Group says “In these extraordinary times, we continue to invest so that we are ready when demand will inevitably increase, enabling us to support our client’s requirements. We have seen businesses using beautiful print and clever direct mail campaigns to help drive demand. Increasing our finishing kit in house makes our business even more flexible and able to service our client’s requirements.”
