Kolorcraft Install First BICKERS XY TAPEJET in UK
Kolorcraft, based in Ossett, one of the UK’s largest designers and producers of point of sale for top brands and retailers, has invested over £600,000 in automated print finishing equipment, including two new machines from Bickers that will combine to offer customers unprecedented speed, accuracy, strength and cost efficiency when it comes to constructing more complex displays.
The new TAPEJET® machine is the first of its kind in the UK and provides accurate, rapid application of a wide range of speciality tapes of all widths, combining with pick and place functions, while the Glue Plotter GLUEJET®combines hot melt and cold PVA to provide fast, accurate and durable bonds. Historically, the POS industry has relied upon conventional hand-held glue guns to bond individual elements in items such as free-standing display units and counter top displays for retailers and brands.
“Although we’ve always been able to guarantee great quality, automating our gluing and taping functions will drive our efficiency and service up a further notch by reducing lead times and costs, while adding strength means we can continue to push the boundaries when it comes to creating and producing stand-out concepts and in-store theatre,” says Phil Findley, Managing Director, Kolorcraft.
The TAPEJET ® and GLUEJET ® machines are both manufactured in Germany by Bickers, who specialise in the manufacture of gluing & taping machinery. Sold in the UK by Neil Thayer of Finishline Machinery.
Andreas Bickers, Bickers GmbH says: “The TAPEJET® machine is not being officially launched until the FESPA exhibition in Cologne from 18th-22nd May 2015, so Kolorcraft’s customers are very lucky to be benefiting now from this new technology. Theirs is currently the only machine of this type outside of France and Germany.”
