Alan Bunter states Remous's lead times and carbon footprint have been reduced thanks to the bindery kit investment
Commercial printer Remous has purchased a Perfecta 92TS guillotine and a Foliant Gemini 400A B3 laminator from Intelligent Finishing Systems, in order to keep up with the results of a previous investment in its bindery.
"We started looking for a new guillotine as a result of the increased workload produced by the StitchLiner. We needed to address a bottleneck. Our Polar guillotine was ten years old and we didn't have space for two so we assessed the impact a new, more automated, system would have," explains Alan Bunter, director of Dorset-based Remous.
He continues: "We liked the Perfecta's level of automation. Its user interface is simpler than the Polar because there are just one or two screens for set-up. This makes it very, very quick in comparison. We can also programme jobs. The knife change is quick and simple, too."
The 15mpm Foliant Gemini 400A is the first laminator bought by Remous, after previously spending 35 percent of its outsourcing expenses on lamination services, as Bunter explains.
"We were paying £45 minimum charge on each lamination job and when we were talking about a digitally printed run of 500 business cards it was just not economical."
Remous uses both litho and digital printing technology and counts work for events including Wimbledon among its output.
