Vivid Laminating Technologies’ new Easymount Air Wide Format Laminator has won a Top Product Award in the United States.
The Wide-Format and Signage 2016 Readers’ Choice Top Product Awards were announced on 1 April, with Vivid’s new system taking the top award in the Finishing: Laminating Equipment category.
Vivid Laminating Technologies Export manager, Bruce Cozens explained, ‘We’re very proud to win a second award for our laminating systems in the U.S. We were presented with the Top Product award for our Matrix OPP Laminating Systems. For the Easymount Air to now also be recognised as a Top Product is a great achievement. Two awards in just six months is incredible.’
A revolution in the wide format lamination and mounting market, the Easymount Air’s patented technology uses one of the most advanced concepts ever seen in a wide format laminator.
The laminating rollers are controlled by pneumatic air pressure, allowing wide format printers and sign makers to mount and laminate with remarkable precision. Pneumatic air allows the rollers to adjust to the exact thickness and pressure required, giving faster production times.
‘We’ve smashed the competition because of the ground-breaking technology within the Easymount Air,’ added Cozens. ‘The top roller ‘floats’ down, which means that foam and fluted boards aren’t crushed. When the rollers achieve the correct substrate thickness, they can be locked in place to keep the required gap, making board feeding faster and more accurate.’
