Sherwood Universal Installs a Titanium Cutter 2.5 x 1.6 meter

Sherwood Universal established in 1975 are specialists in Digital Printing, Large Format Printing, Print Finishing and Fulfilment based in Nottingham. They have invested in an International Graphics Supplies (IGS) Titanium 2.5 x 1.6 meter cutting table, to eliminate a finishing bottleneck arising from the installation of a Jetrix Large Format UV flatbed printer.

Sherwood Universal has seen a significant increase in wide format sales since the UV printer installation.
However, this increase in production led to a finishing bottleneck due to their manual cutting processes.
David O’Neil, Managing Director of Sherwood Universal said, “We had looked at a range of cutting machines but, after thorough testing and speaking to existing Titanium users the Titanium 2516 stood out as "robust, adaptable and very competitively priced".
“The Jetrix and IGS Titanium 2516 combination has enabled us to offer a varied range of products including short run and prototype packaging, point of sales displays, kiss-cut labels and social distancing products.”
“Before the Titanium 2516 installation we had to outsource cutting which added days to the delivery time. Now clients visit our office and we can make one off packaging designs on the fly during their visits which is a significant benefit to our customers”
“The IGS team managed the installation with easy and we were in production within hours of delivery. The training for the new machine, including optimising the router for a wide range of rigid materials and rotary knife for our short run and prototype textiles customers has been excellent”.
The Titanium 2516 was purchased from International Graphic Supplies who are a Monmouthshire based machinery supplier.
The Titanium series offers an impressive range of cutting tables that start with the Titanium Titanium 0806 for the B3 and B2 Digital Print and Litho Press users looking to enter the lucrative short run packaging market.
For the Wide Format Print customer cutting tables are available from 1.1 x 1.3 up to 3.5 x 2.0 meters.
With an automatic precision cutting tool, the exact cutting depth can be achieved quickly, precisely and efficiently. Supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters is a high resolution registration camera which ensures cutting printed jobs accurately to register.
A range of specialty tools are supplied with each cutter. These tools offer speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as Dibond, corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, textiles, wood and a long list of plastics.
Peter Flynn, Managing Director IGS comments on the installation " I’m very pleased to see Sherwood Universal are already enjoying the many benefits of moving to a Titanium cutter. As David has identified our price / performance is hard to match and this powerful combination is allowing us to building a very impressive portfolio of customers.
Our showroom is also busy with demonstrations for prospects looking to invest in a Digital Cutter and UV Flatbed Printer to meet their customers’ requirements for short run packaging and social distancing signage.”
