We have ordered a range of machines which will increase capacity and improve efficiency and productivity across our product range.
The largest single item of investment is a Digital Printer for aluminium. The machine has been supplied by Polychromal in the Netherlands who also supply our special open pore aluminium which can be used for both screen and digital printing and result in the print being sealed under the anodised layer. MTM have a long standing relationship with Polychromal, who are a similar sized company to ourselves and share the same business values. The latest version of the Polychromal DSE Aluprinter enables us to digitally print all our existing aluminium labels and nameplates but will also enable us to print photo quality graphics onto aluminium which we are not currently able to offer. Our friends at Polychromal have their own nameplate department mainly servicing the Benelux countries and the machine we are buying benefits from the enhancements introduced over the years as a result of their own experience in this market.
