Mike Malpas, Managing Director at Hampton, expressed, "Expanding our packaging and wide format services is a key objective for us in 2021.

After evaluating options, we chose the Titanium 2516 Conveyor model, impressed by IGS's demonstration of its capabilities."

Peter Flynn, Managing Director of IGS, remarked on the installation, stating, “Hampton Printing is renowned for its precision and quality in print. Understanding their needs, we recommended the Titanium 2516, equipped with various tools like drag knife and creasing wheels for packaging prototypes, oscillating knife for sturdy substrates, and a Kiss cutting tool for labels. We can also incorporate a routing tool with extraction for future requirements.”

Malpas added, “The Titanium 2516 has empowered us to offer innovative packaging prototypes and fulfill short-run cutting and creasing needs, complementing our digital capabilities. With its large cutting bed and conveyor system, we now provide a range of wide format products including graphics for walls, floors, and windows.”
