Karl Martindale, Next Generation Signs, and Julian Sage, Tekcel CNC Solutions alongside the newly installed Tekcel EXR router.One of the country's leading sign companies, Next Generation Signs, has installed the very latest in CNC routing technology from Tekcel CNC Solutions to complement its recent investment in a state of the art flatbed UV inkjet printer from Vutek.

Based in Liverpool and operating from 10,000 sq. ft. of purpose built, fully equipped premises, Next Generation Signs supply businesses, both trade and commercial, across the entire UK, with a huge range of high quality sign and display products. With experience of designing, manufacturing and installing signs and displays over the past 20 years to call upon, the company prides itself on offering its customers the widest choice of premium products and services at extremely competitive prices. According to Next Generation Signs' owners, Glen Titherington and Karl Martindale, to achieve the very high standards they set for their company requires a willingness to invest wisely in the right staff and the latest sign manufacturing technology.

Karl Martindale, Next Generation Signs comments: "Our customers are constantly looking for bigger, better or more affordable ways of getting their message across. We see it as our job to provide innovative solutions to these problems. Employing advanced production technology like the Tekcel CNC router and the Vutek UV inkjet printer enables us to do just that."

No strangers to the world of CNC routers, having had one in the business for the past two decades, Glen and Karl knew what to look for in a new machine and found it in the recently launched EXR model from Tekcel CNC Solutions. Knowing how important the drive technology of a router is to the overall accuracy of the system, particularly in a large format bed size exceeding 3m x 2m, they were impressed to learn that all Tekcel routers feature class leading, ballscrew servo drive systems on every axis - similar to the drive technology used to machine parts for aircraft where pinpoint accuracy and repeatability is critical. The EXR also features a unique, fully automated, multi tool change system that combines a choice of up to 17 tools with a powerful 7.5Kw spindle motor. Equally impressive is the incredible hold down force delivered by the Tekcel vacuum bed - another essential component for fast and efficient routing.

Julian Sage, Tekcel CNC Solutions states: "The attributes that so impressed Next Generation Signs, along with additional options and features that include integrated system automation tool and print registration systems, make the Tekcel EXR model the most productive CNC router in the sign industry today."
