This month at DPI (UK) Ltd we’ve invested in a brand new, automated Elumatec DG104 twin headed mitre saw to support growing demand for our tensioned fabric displays from the large format printing trade and creative agencies in the UK and Ireland.
As we offer the largest variety of profiles for use in tension fabric displays on the market, a massive increase in demand made this investment a necessity. The new saw doubles manufacturing capacity and provides an additional capability to cut variable angles and much larger profiles. With a computerised display, what was a manual job is now automated, easier and faster and now it’s fully commissioned, this machinery has already proved its worth.
From our factory and new showroom based here in Castle Donington in the East Midlands, we manufacture aluminium frames and light boxes used with tensioned fabric graphics. Finished frame products are wall-mounted, free standing, or suspended from the ceiling and can be illuminated. And through trusted print partners, DPI (UK) can also supply printed fabrics with the frame hardware. Widely used by major retailers, in airports and for conferences and exhibitions, fabric graphics are printed via Dye Sublimation, Latex or UV devices, then push-fit on to frames and folded or rolled enabling them to be cost effectively shipped.
This latest investment has had a positive effect, both on our order book and on staff morale. An immediate increase in productivity has meant meeting very tight lead-times.
