Raffle Tickets Direct invests in increased cutting capacity

08/08/2017

If you are producing raffle tickets you must have the right cutting accuracy and the right productivity. Trade producer Raffle Tickets Direct is this week installing a Polar N92 Plus at its Irchester plant in Northamptonshire and its operators are being trained to ensure they can maximise the use of the functionality of this guillotine.

This new guillotine, which will run flexible day shifts, replaces a 23 year old Polar 76 which has served the company well and still attained a “good price” through a dealer.

Mark Hinson, managing director of the company, says: “The old guillotine could only cut 500 sheets whereas the new one will handle 1,000 easily so this will help relieve any bottlenecks. It will handle work from our Speedmasters (SM52-4 and SM52-2) and from our digital presses. We can produce 250 to millions of tickets, working for schools, football clubs, charities and the trade.”

Raffle Tickets Direct (www.raffleticketsdirect.co.uk) has been a Heidelberg customer since its parent company Prestige Printing was established in 1989. That loyalty coupled with the performance and resale value of the Polar technology is what has ensured the choice of guillotine this time around.

Raffle Tickets Direct can offer advice on the legal requirements required for raffle ticket production and its staff undertake quality checks as standard before orders leave the premises.
The Polar 92N Plus is a high-speed cutter which features a touch screen console and full colour display. This model can handle a broad range of substrates with a diagonal measurement of up to 920mm. The Optiknife system makes knife changing quick and easy.
