• Charing Cross Print makes new Duplo investment

        • With a focus on increasing productivity and finishing capacity, Central London commercial print firm, Charing Cross Print has invested in a Touchline CF375 creaser/folder from Duplo.

          The long-time Duplo user installed the Touchline CF375 in September and has since taken advantage of its feeder capacity of 200mm, one-pass crease and fold system and handling capacity of 400gsm sheets of paper and card.

          The decision to invest was made following problems with its old folding equipment that was causing delays and slowing down turnaround, as operators frequently needed to fix jams and mis-feeds and refill the very limited capacity stacker on the system. The company also had to undertake two processes on two separate machines to crease and fold jobs.

          Mark Dobson, Charing Cross Print Director said, “the Touchline is unreal in terms of productivity. Our old folding unit was constantly jamming and it could only hold 50-60mm of sheets in the stacker. Also, our creaser could only go to 300gsm stocks and we do a lot of 350gsm with matt laminate double-sided. I went out to look for two devices – a creaser and a folder – to alleviate these issues, but Duplo said they had a unit that could do both. It was a no-brainer to go for that device.”

          With business up 30 per cent from last year, Charing Cross Print has been investing in new equipment including, an Ideal 6600 guillotine from Duplo, and Xerox Versant digital presses. Website and ecommerce capabilities have also been improved.

          Peter Jolly, Duplo UK Managing Director added, “Charing Cross Print is a print supplier that has to react fast and get it right, so our Touchline CF375 is a perfect component within its finishing set up. Since then, we’ve been able to help out with the guillotine too, and we look forward to working with Mark and his team to help continue growing their vibrant business in years to come.”
