Installed at the beginning of June, training was carried out on the same day and the new machine was up and running by the afternoon.

The DC-746 has a top speed of 50 sheets per minute and can process up to 10 slits, 30 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, producing over 350 business cards, or 120 A5 greetings cards or just under 200 A5 postcards in a minute.  

Fully automated, the machine has EFI XML integration, with built-in CCD scanner and reads barcodes and registration marks.

Speaking about the investment, operations director Jason Vivian says the device has played a major role in Image Data supporting its wide range of customers during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

We’ve found keeping up with technology makes great business sense, and our customers appreciate it especially when we can offer newer and better products that are in line with their own goals

“We treat our suppliers and customers as partners,” Vivian says, adding: “We seek relationships and build them through the years so that when things do not quite go to plan, it is the relationships that help us through these challenging times.

“We have been very lucky throughout the current pandemic; we’ve had some very good long-standing contracts with local manufacturing companies, and others in the health sector who have needed our services through these difficult times.”

Over the past three years, Image Data has invested more than £3m in new kit, with the aim of helping meet customer demand and bolster its overall service offering.

“We’ve found keeping up with technology makes great business sense, and our customers appreciate it especially when we can offer newer and better products that are in line with their own goals,” Vivian says.
