First worldwide showing of Triton Landscape

Posted: 17th October 2018

D&K Europe Ltd chose The Print Show 2018 for the first worldwide showing of its fully automated Triton B1 Landscape (1050mm x 1050mm) laminator and have hailed it as a huge success, drawing attention from both printers and finishers alike.

Supplied as standard with a pallet loading high pile feeder with floating table to make pile alignment simple and easy it was shown at The Print Show with an optional Stacker for pallet to pallet operation. During the show it ran regularly at its maximum speed of 40m/minute which would laminate almost 3,500 B1 sheets per hour.

The B1+ Triton models are available in both portrait and landscape fed versions and either single or double-sided. The double-sided model, Triton PB, has been well proven since the concept launch in the award winning Europa B2 version. The PB has two laminating stations, each with a heated chrome roller and rubber nip roller to give the same high quality finish to both sides of the sheet without the normal loss of speed associated with traditional double-sided models.

Features include PLC control with touch screen operation, a floating feed table to allow easy pile adjustment and a cantilevered air shaft mandrel for faster film roll changes.

First UK installations for Europa PB double-sided laminator

Posted: 3rd December 2014

July 2014 saw the first three installations of the new Europa PB in the UK. Launched at IPEX, the uniquely configured double-sided Europa PB joins the award winning single-sided Europa and the Europa EL, single-sided + embossing station.

The first installation took place at Outstanding Map Distributors in Cornwall and replaced an aging Autobond. Sean Quigly, MD of Outstanding told Printweek recently “The new D&K is pretty fantastic, it’s got two chrome rollers so both sides can be laminated to the same quality”.

The second installation took place at DTP in Edinburgh where they specialise in offering quick turnaround brochures for the property market. Alun Joseph, MD of DTP said
“Having used D&K laminators for over 10 years, I was excited to see the Europa PB at IPEX.  As most of our laminated work is double sided, it was clearly a machine we could not overlook and I estimate we will save approximately 500 man-hours per year with this installation. 

The Europa PB is as we have come to expect from D&K kit and the quality of the double sided finish is much better than we have seen previously on other kit. I would very much recommend the D&K range for build quality, service and support, but the Europa PB in particular would be an ideal addition to any post press environment where there is a volume of double sided lamination work.”

Both Outstanding and DTP took the option of extending both feed and delivery to cope with 1m + sheet length for their specific applications.


The third installation was carried out by D&K distributor Encore Machinery Ltd at IPS Ultraprint Ltd on Guernsey. It’s a tough job but someone had to do it and Managing Director, Mike Biggs, carried out the installation personally. The first job run on the Europa PB was the laminating of postcards and took 15 minutes, a job that IPS commented would have taken around 3 hours on their two Matrix machines running at 2m/minute.

Further installations are already planned both in the UK and further afield.

UK launch of the new Triton

Posted: 5th February 2014

Triton B1 fully automated laminator is one of the latest additions to the D&K range and will receive its first UK showing at IPEX in March.

Available as a single sided or single/double sided laminator, the Triton is PLC controlled with touch screen operation.  Steel, chrome plated rollers heated by electrical bands offer greater versatility. 

Optional stacker and pre-loader are also available.

Video of the Triton and Triton with Stacker can be seen here.

Latest model launch - Europa Embossing Line

Posted: 31st July 2013

The Europa EL automated laminating and embossing line has been based on the proven Europa B2 machine. The Europa was launched at IPEX in 2010 now has over 160 installations world-wide

By the addition of an embossing station lamination and embossing can now be done in-line using standard laminating films. Embossing will be carried out after lamination, using an engraved steel roller, and before separation. There will also be the facility to dis-engage it in order to laminate conventionally.

The Europa EL will run at speeds of up to 15m/minute and processes sheets of up to 540mm x 740mm (portrait) with a range of stock weight between 115g - 350g.

Europa EL System has been designed for both traditional and digital printing houses. This fully automated unit is easy to use and operator-friendly.

The pneumatically controlled rollers, energy-saving heating system, easy to use operator touch screen and surprisingly small footprint are some the biggest advantages of Europa EL System.

More details to follow soon.

Drupa hailed a success

Posted: 12th June 2012

John Hancock, Sales Manager - UK & Ireland, said “Despite visitor numbers contracting by about 20% since 2008 the visitors who came onto our stand had a genuine interest in either replacing or adding lamination to their portfolio with many looking to do business at the show.”

Visitors from nearly 120 different countries came to see us on the D&K stand during the 14 day show. 

Robin French, Managing Director, said “Drupa confirmed the growing importance in the world market of the so called BRIC counties (Brazil, Russia, India & China), with record numbers of visitors to the stand from South America generally.  It is also evident that the print market in Eastern Europe is growing in strength.  This is already turning out to be the most successful Drupa in the company’s history - very gratifying in this our 25th Anniversary year”
