NAVARRE, Ohio — May 17, 2012 — Miller Weldmaster, a leading global provider of heat-sealing
technology services and machinery for the industrial welding fabric & thermoplastic market,
announced today that through its partnering UK distributor, Solent Sewing & Welding has
completed the installation of a Miller Weldmaster 112 Extreme at sign and graphics specialist
Hollywood Monster’s Birmingham production facility.
The combined welding, eyeleting and cutting solution will enable Hollywood Monster to finish
a wider range of materials than their previous equipment allowed, including ‘green’ recyclable
polyethylene thanks to the machine’s hot air and hot wedge welding functionality.
“Hollywood Monster is contracted to build signage and banners in preparation for this
summer’s 2012 London Olympics. We are thrilled and honored they’ve chosen Miller Weldmaster
technology and machinery to take on this momentous task,” said Scott Miller, Chief Executive
Officer for Miller Weldmaster. “The Miller Weldmaster 112 Extreme is the perfect machine for this
project and built to meet the customer’s need and specifications.”
The recent acquisition of the Miller Weldmaster 112 Extreme by Hollywood Monster’s mirrors
industry trends. Businesses are gradually moving away from radio frequency welding in favor
of faster, robust and more reliant technology such as hot air and hot wedge welding.
“While RF welding has been popular in the UK in the past, there is now a general movement in
the trade towards the Miller Weldmaster hot air and hot wedge welding solutions,” comments Solent
managing director Ian Jenkins for Solent Sewing & Welding, citing the systems’ speed and
environmental credentials as key to the trend.”
The 112 Extreme is the next generation of the popular 112 Cross Seamer. The 112 Extreme has a
larger breadth of production capabilities and is easier for the operator to use. With
precision-controlled welding parameters, easy recall settings and an ergonomic design, the 112
Extreme is built to take production and efficiency to the next level.
