Flatbed substrate applicators reward investment

The RollsRoller flatbed applicator distributed in the UK by William Smith has proved itself a cost-effective and accurate method of applying self-adhesive materials, application tapes and digital prints to virtually any commonly used substrate up to a thickness of 70mm.
William Smith also claims savings in production time of up to 80 per cent by comparison with other forms of media application. One company that has invested in no fewer than three models of the machine is Nuneaton Signs. Commercial sales manager Gary Phipps has been particularly impressed with the performance of the RollsRoller, commenting: ‘The machines we have installed have greatly reduced production times and increased our profitability due to their single-stage and single-person operating capabilities and the precise and bubble-free quality of the output provided. They represent the perfect middle ground between time-consuming and costly manual application and the expensive alternative of direct-to-substrate printing".

Apart from the machines’ ability to drastically reduce production times and labour costs, they also enable the handling of much larger sizes of both rigid and flexible substrates which can now be processed in a matter of minutes rather than hours when using manual methods. At Nuneaton Signs, the RollsRoller is used for the direct-to-substrate (both channelled and flat) application of reflective or digitally printed media of varying thickness for road traffic signs that are a speciality of the company. Materials handled include 11SWg aluminium sheet, three millimetre-thick ACM and foamed and/or rigid PVC composite boards.

Phipps says: ‘The automatic height adjustment facility is great for processing substrates of a different thickness.’ In addition to this facility, other design enhancements include extension tables, a supplementary roller beam and fluorescent backlighting for the application table on selective models to further increase the level of accuracy when handling multi-coloured or translucent graphics.
