About the GMP Q-Topic 380 Duplex Digital Laminating Machine
The GMP Q-Topic 380 Duplex POD digital laminating machines are a very latest solution from World-renowned Laminating Machine Manufacturer GMP (Global Manufacturing Pioneer). The Q-Topic 380 is designed to offer an in-house laminating solution for Short-Run, on-demand digital applications as well as the more traditional litho outputs.
The Q-Topic Duplex is a semi-automated pneumatically controlled digital POD Laminator but with the added benefit of Dual Application Rollers which enable double-sided laminating to be completed in a single pass, halving the production time of single side models. The system incorporates the latest in pneumatic controls and combines the benefits of GMP’s belt-fed table with their magic eye gate control for quick and accurate sheet overlap. The in-built perforating device and auto bursting unit ensure each sheet arrives on the delivery table ready to guillotine and laminated perfectly.
The Q-Topic also has the ability to Sleek/Foil direct from the box, the built-in re-winder enables holographic images, foils and spot lamination in both gloss and matt to be applied to your sheet without any special skills or tools. The foils are also over printable so you can create metallic finishes on images and text as well as produce high-end cards for wedding stationery, invites, tickets, business cards and a whole host of other prints. Pair the Q-Topic with a digital print engine and the possibilities of generating extra revenue from untapped markets could be huge!
Based on the basic principle of the larger GMP Pro-Topic 540, the Q-Topic offers some of the most advanced technology on a machine of this size.
Why buy digital laminating machines? For business owners
The Q-Topic 380 are ideal digital laminating machines for businesses who want to bring their digital or quick turnaround litho lamination requirements in house.
It is equipped with a semi-automated feed station that controls the overlap of each sheet and prevents miss-feeds and mistakes by opening and closing a gate, controlled by the magic eye, as each sheet is passed through. In addition to the sheet controls the Q-Topic 380 is equipped with auto sheet separation which ensures a single operator can control the whole process and provide laminated sheets which are ready to guillotine.
The integrated touch control panel has a 20 job program memory function which enables repeat work to be recalled instantly, thus allowing an operator to run the work identically every time.
The Q-Topic 380 is so easy to use and setup that even the shortest run can be done in house, a volume as low as 1 can be run instantly, accurately and with ease. If you are outsourcing as few as 50 sheets per week this solution will give you a swift return on investment whilst also giving you back control of your work and quality of the laminated finish.
Add to the same mixture the ability to Foil and Spot Laminate and the possibilities are endless, owners can tap in to new revenue streams that were once not accessible with compact digital machines such as this.
As the Q-Topic 380 uses the latest Pneumatics to apply the pressure to the sheet you can also use this machine with none digital film in many circumstances. As a result, you can be laminating SRA3 sheets from as little as 1 pence per sheet.
