Bespoke Engineering

On many occasions, the industry is faced with exceptional challenges that can often lead to lucrative projects for clients providing they find a suitable engineering solution. In the world of print finishing Col-Tec has often been called upon to build both custom collating equipment for special applications and other finishing machinery solutions. The latest example is a large format Stitch and Fold unit for the Early Learning educational market as the sheet sizes made stitching and folding on conventional equipment troublesome, or impossible. In order to support automatic production lines, Col-Tec will produce the necessary interfaces to conveyors, binding equipment, film-wrapping machines, etc all to individual specification.
