Quoin Print Move Prompts Graphcut Guillotine Supplied by TCS
Moving premises prompted Oakham commercial printer Quoin Print Ltd to invest in a Graphcut 52H fully hydraulic guillotine supplied by Terry Cooper Services.
Explains Sam Smith, director: “We moved to a smaller site in August and space became very important to us. We could have taken our existing guillotine but it had a much larger footprint. Also that would have involved structural building work including taking a wall down. The cost to do this made the purchase of a new machine more attractive.
“We saved the cost of any building work, the cost of the moving our old guillotine and TCS delivered the new guillotine free of charge.
“We have worked with Terry Cooper Services in the past and so spoke to them about the logistics. While talking to them we looked at investing in a new smaller guillotine instead.
“The Graphcut is easier to set up, quicker to programme. As there is only three of us we tend to print at the start of the day and finish at the end. Sometimes this could back up. Now we are able to get it done quicker which will be a great benefit in the long run.”
Quoin Print Co Ltd was established in 2003. The litho and digital print operation serves local and international customers with a complete range of print products from business cards to brochures. It also supplies and prints clothing, banners, pop-up banners, signs, large format posters and promotional items.
Smith says: “We offer a broad cross section of services. We want to be able to say we can do everything and anything our customers would like.”
The small foot-printed, fully-programmable, single-phase electricity, sturdy system offers the choice of electric motor driven clamp and knife or full hydraulic operation. There is a light barrier, infra-red cutting light beam, and full programmability via a touchscreen.
