Intec Printing Solutions has introduced two new models to its ColorFlare range of lamination and foiling equipment, with CF350 and CF750 join the existing CF1200 flagship model.

The ColorFlares are compact dual laminator and foil flaring solutions designed to offer commercial printers, marketers and designers in-house decorative effects. Primarily designed for short run, on-demand digital applications as well as lamination for traditional litho output, the ColorFlares open up new opportunities for the production of greetings cards, vouchers, security print, packaging, book jackets and labels.

Intec’s CF350 offers the flexibility of laminating and foiling and with its softer feed rollers, useful for foiling trickier items such as envelopes without any detrimental effects.

Meanwhile CF750 offers three different set up options; as a desktop solution, with a stand and with the new dual feed roller assembly so lamination and foil rolls can be loaded together for exact material alignment and quicker production set.

‘We were very encouraged by the incredible sales received from the launch of the flagship CF1200,’ explained managing director Ian Melville. ‘After extensive market research we discovered that there was a gap in the market for smaller, entry level, desktop solutions that utilised the more cost effective 3 inch core materials in the market, so we developed these units to fill that gap.’

Coupled with the ColorSplash colour digital printer or printers from other manufacturers, the ColorFlare can foil onto printed toner and lamination films creating special effects without set up charges. The machines in the range use industry standard 3 inch core for both laminate and foils.
