FPL Signs has invested in a new VeloBlade Nexus wide format digital die cutting system from Vivid Laminating Technologies.

Based in Farnborough, Hampshire, the company offers services from building signage and vehicle graphics to company wall art and branded office supplies. FPL Signs recently took the decision to install a VeloBlade Nexus to expand its signs-related cutting and routing capabilities, particularly focusing on wide-format substrates including vinyl, Foamex, ACM and acrylic.

Nick Brooks, operations manager at FPL Signs, said, ‘We decided to install Vivid’s VeloBlade Nexus wide format digital die cutting system due to its functionality, versatility and because of the existing Vivid equipment already in use within the group. FPL Signs is part of the Sandhurst Autoprint Group of Companies and the company has previously invested in a VeloBlade Volta and Nexus digital die-cutting system from Vivid. So we felt confident using the system and the fact that the Nexus came in at a cost-effective price point made sense for us to invest in.

‘This new investment will enable us to expand our range of bespoke signs that we can now produce in-house such as ACM tray signs, acrylic lettering and panels. We are using numerous vinyls, such as cast, monomeric, printed and kiss-cut. Our most used material is a seven-year polymeric vinyl complete with overlaminating.’
