Million Dollar Machine

Specialist greetings cards manufacturer Loxleys, continues its advancements in innovation and consistency of quality with the recent pioneering purchase of a state of the art B1 flitter machine, propelling the group to the UKs largest independent flitter capacity.

Due to the continued popularity of flitter finished designs and publishers desire to add more value through the use of special finishes, Loxleys decided to invest in the machine complimenting the already existing array of single card flittering facilities at the Sheffield site and further boosting in-house capabilities.

Loxleys Commercial Director, Tony Lorriman explained: “Over the last couple of years flitter has been a bottleneck finish across the greeting card industry therefore we felt that it was strategically important to significantly increase Loxleys capacity in this area in order to both maintain our service levels and give us scope for growth. The fact that our new machine is capable of producing traditional flitter, encapsulated flitter and off line spot UV on a wide variety of substrates in a B1 sheet size gives us something completely unique to the UK market and really opens up opportunities for future innovation.”

The recent purchase, first of its kind to the UK market, allows Loxleys to maintain their high levels of accuracy and quality whilst enhancing overall efficiency
