Abbot Print streamlines production with Horizon

Luton-based print business Abbot Print has invested in a new Horizon APC-610 guillotine, in a move it says will significantly enhance its finishing process and help it to streamline overall production.

The guillotine new will work alongside a number of digital presses to produce business, within a self contained production department at Abbot Print.

The investment comes in a landmark year for Abbot Print, which is celebrating its 100th year in business, and managing director Alasdair Browne says the APC-610 illustrates its future growth ambitions.

“We had two business card cutters but they were not always able to handle the volumes we needed,” which says.

“At times we were having to get the work completed by a guillotine in our main bindery. So, we decided to look around for an alternative. We needed something that could complete the volumes.

“We liked the Horizon APC-61. It goes to a minimum cut of 25mm and has a compact footprint so it can run near the digital press producing the cards.

“It is so easy to set up anyone can use and we are able to keep guillotining with the digital staff rather than occupy a dedicated guillotine operator.”

Abbot Print purchased the new machine from Intelligent Finishing Systems.
