KEP invests in the UK’s first Genesis-V cutting machine

KEP Print Group, a leading commercial print house specialist, has announced a UK first after taking delivery of the next generation multi-purpose cutting machine to help boost performance.


The Tamworth-based company has invested in Blackman & White’s Genesis-V Premium edition machine, as part of ambitious plans to increase the output of it cardboard engineering and point-of-sale division.


The installation features industry-leading tool head technology with interchangeable dual driven and passive tools, whilst the 30% reduction in weight makes it the fastest cutting tool to date.


It offers cutting speeds of 1200mm, twinned with a cutting accuracy of 0.1mm making it an ideal system to quickly and efficiently cut a wide range of substrates.


KEP chose the 3.2metre wide conveyorised version of the Genesis-V and it was supplied with 2 crease wheels, a drag knife and through cut tool.


“Genesis-V is ideal for our expanding cardboard engineering and POS division,” explained Mark Plowman, Managing Director at KEP Print Group.


“The versatility and speed of the machine - with its next-generation tooling options - means we maximise efficiency, as we don’t have to stop production as we change from drag knife to creasing wheel.


“We also love the fact that Blackman & White’s machines are designed and built in the UK and its level of technical support is always excellent.”


KEP Print Group is a full-service commercial printer with multiple disciplines in-house. It specialises in large format printing, digital and litho printing, print finishing, graphic design, direct mail and fulfilment for a range of blue-chip national accounts. 


Alex White, Blackman & White Managing Director, concluded: “We’re immensely proud to be working with the KEP Print Group, a highly successful UK-based family business that share similar principles to our company.


“It will be great to see point-of-sale structures up and down the high-street and know that they have been cut on one of our cutting machines.”
