in 2013, Jonsigns have invested over £150k in cutting edge machinery which will support two of our busy production departments.
In January, our metal shop became the proud owner of a 4m Ermaksan Press Brake and a 4m Ermaksan Guillotine that will work alongside our current 4m Person Press. The introduction of these machines allows us to cut and bend sheet material quicker and more efficiently than before, reducing production man hours significantly on each job. Both are CNC controlled, cutting and bending to a precise 0.001mm tolerance, increasing our production by 35% and in turn allowing us to handle larger orders to tighter deadlines.
The future’s bright…For a number of years now our printing department has been crying out for additional machines to cope with our digital growth. Throughout 2012 our JV5 1600mm wide printer was working approximately 16-20 hours per day, producing 22sqm of high quality digital print and due to this demand, we have invested in two JV33 Printers and a Rolls Roller 5m flatbed laminator. The additional machines will allow us to print an extra 25sqm per hour.
Furthermore, all three printers have been converted to use the Mimaki ink system. The SS21 solvent ink configuration offers a UV-stable and totally waterproof option for all external applications, superb scratch resistance and colour stability.
