SOLON, OH  |  September 14, 2022

Graphco, a leading provider of offset, digital and print finishing solutions, announces that they will be running live laminating and foiling jobs at the PRINTING United Expo, which will take place October 19-21, 2022, in Las Vegas. As the exclusive distributor for Foliant laminating solutions, as well as the Midwest & Southeast Distributor for RMGT, Graphco will be demonstrating the Foliant Mercury 530NG laminator with foiling to demonstrate high value-add finishing

“PRINTING United provides us the platform to showcase Foliant finishing with embellishments, which create an emotional appeal to a printed product,” states Chris Manley, President, Graphco. “Our booth will highlight how various customers in the commercial print market have benefited from the “Unfair Advantage”. We will use technology demonstrations with the Mercury 530NG with an integrated pallet stacker in live operation to show just how impactful finishing embellishments can be to a printed project.”

The Foliant Mercury 530NG is a compact industrial laminating machine. The machine is suitable for laminating heavy-duty digital and offset output. Maximum speed is up to 88 feet/minute, while performance is 2,300 sheets per hour of 19.7″ x 27.8″ portrait. The Mercury 530NG has a foiler winding device that uses metalized film (gold, silver, red, etc.) or spot varnish film. The machine operates in semi-automatic mode during foiling because there is no need for separation.

Foliant is the leading brand in both single- and dual-side laminating, offering the most complete range of laminating machines on the market. Whether a packaging printer needs a high-quality and fast solution for high-end folding cartons in the 8-UP arena, or if a book printer is looking for a fast and consistent book cover solution, Foliant offers the right machine. Foliant’s 8-UP solution laminates 30” X 43” sheets at up to 3,000 SPH and the 4-UP laminators handle 21” x 40”+ sheets and runs digital size work at over 10,000 SPH. Foliant’s 2-UP machines provide a max size of 15.7” X 40”+ and the top-of-the-range unit runs digital prints at over 5,000 SPH.

This year's PRINTING United EXPO is a three-day industry event that will bring together regional and national associations representing more thousands of companies, along with commercial printers, screen and garment producers, large format and sign printers, binderies and graphic finishers, and industry suppliers.

Graphco will be exhibiting in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center Booth in #N802.
