Fujifilm showcases Derwent’s success

Fujifilm recently staged a special open house event to celebrate the success Derwent Displays has enjoyed after investing in two Inca Digital Onset X platforms during the past two years.

Last year, the company, which designs and manufactures cardboard displays and packaging, took on an Onset X1 to enhance its service offering.

Derwent swiftly followed this up with the purchase of an Onset X2 with new automatic robotic arm system in June of this year. At the same time, the firm acquired a Dyss X9 digital router cutting table taking its total investment in 2017-18 to £1.75m.

Paul White, commercial director at Derwent Displays, has only praise for the impact that the new investments have had on business.

White says: “The addition of the Onset X2 has allowed us to explore alternative markets, including small to medium run packaging and POS work for brands who have always demanded higher print quality.

Customer feedback has been very encouraging with a number of customers commenting on how pleased they are with the quality of the products

“For example, we’re now able to get a good enough result by printing on card to replace printed metal tins for stationery gift packaging.

“When we stopped screen printing in-house, we had to put work out for UV varnishing, when required. However the spot UV we achieve with the Onset X1 and X2 means that no time is lost sending work to sub-contractors, resulting in faster turnaround times, with no impact on the quality of the end result.

“Customer feedback has been very encouraging with a number of customers commenting on how pleased they are with the quality of the products. The reduction in cost has also been positively received, especially on previously printed litho packaging jobs.”
