AXYZ International says the Trident solution can increase output by up to 50 percent in comparison with other machines on offer from the company

AXYZ joins the likes of early sign-ups Grafityp, Perfect Bindery Solutions, Marqetspace, Nettl, Printing.com, Route One Print, Brunel Engineering, Fanela, Stanford Marsh Group, and Zonzini at the International Centre in Telford, the new venue for the 2017 show, which will run from October 11th to 13th. Each has taken advantage of The Print Show’s ‘early bird’ offer, ensuring value added incentives to signing up to the exhibition before the end of January 2017. 

Although there are still around ten months to go until the doors open in Telford, AXYZ has wasted no time in putting together its plans for the show and has not only secured its place on the floorplan, but also announced that it will showcase Trident, a hybrid combined CNC routing and print finishing system targeted at large-format print providers and those print businesses in the graphic arts space.

Robert Marshall, vice-president market development at AXYZ, explains that after 
having visited the 2016 edition of the show, and seen the quality of visitors that were in attendance, he concluded that The Print Show is the “ideal platform” to promote Trident.

“Having visited The Print Show 2016 event, we were impressed by the quality and number of visitors,” Marshall said. He added: “It was decided that The Print Show would provide an ideal platform on which to promote Trident and for this reason alone it was decided to exhibit at the event in October 2017.”

Focusing more on the Trident technology, the solution combines CNC routing and knife-cutting, providing users with a three-pronged processing capability within a single powerful production workhorse.

Standard processing areas of the machine range from 1,524 x 1,219mm to 2,159 x 3,048mm, with virtually any length of material accommodated. The narrower carriage construction contributes to a 12 percent smaller footprint when compared with other AXYZ machines. In addition, the Trident incorporates interchangeable blade attachments that can be as long as 120mm to enable the more efficient processing of harder, heavier and thicker materials.

“Having been aware of the need for manufacturers of CNC routers to address new markets and in particular the now burgeoning print and cut sector, we developed and launched our first Trident hybrid combined CNC routing and print finishing system,” Marshall said.

He concluded: “In addition to increasing output by up to 50 percent by comparison with other AXYZ machines, Trident has resolved issues frequently encountered by print finishing companies.  In particular those relating to the processing of an ever-increasing range of different rigid and flexible substrates that require a wider, longer, and deeper processing capability—whilst obviating the need to purchase at least two different types of machine to carry out all of the routing and cutting requirements.”
