Cms becomes Brett Martin’s newest Approved Partner

Brett Martin is pleased to announce that Italian thermoforming equipment manufacturer, Cms – a unique supplier of best-in-class machines for plastics processing – has been announced as the latest company to acquire Approved Partner status. Cms has been awarded this accolade following the successful testing of Brett Martin’s Marpet-g FS (PETg) material on its Eidos vacuum forming machine.

Cms is the first Approved Partner who manufactures thermoforming equipment. Brett Martin’s 5mm Marpet-g FS plastic sheet – which does not need to be pre-dried before thermoforming unlike other plastics – was tested on Cms’s Eidos 1512, using a vacuum forming machine with halogen heaters and an aluminium mould. This sheet is ideal for various POS and 3D displays, as well as signage and industrial applications.

The high quality of the material, combined with the Cms Eidos, produced vacuum formed parts of excellent quality. The PETg material reacted well with our latest technology, granting high productivity.”

Brett Martin’s Approved Partner Programme sees the Northern Ireland based plastics manufacturer work closely with a number of renowned printing, cutting and now thermoforming machine manufacturers to test and showcase the capabilities of its semi-finished product portfolio.

Simona Firth, semi-finished product manager at Brett Martin says, “We’re delighted to see our Marpet-g FS plastic sheet perform so well on Cms’s equipment. Our Approved Partner Programme is crucial to our product development. It validates our products’ quality and ensures their reliability and versatility for printers. Companies such as Cms allow us to understand how our products are performing and make sure they are compatible with the latest processing technologies to ensure suitability for a wide range of applications.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
