Most organisations like to tell you how good they are. We let others do the talking for us.
Platypus has been associated with GraphpaK and Tom since they commenced business. Toms approach has to always be very honest with his recommendation on what materials & machinery options he can supply – sometimes to the extent that he will suggest another supplier.
Our first major investment with Graphpak was a highly specified Autobond in 2008.In the last 6 years Graph pak has been successful in converting us to to high quality machinery from Taiwan – a window patcher A box erector & a B1 Hot foil embosser – Die-cutter. All replacing elite brand older Europe machines.
With great success after sales service, updated software and maintance when required, is where this company shines the most.

Earlier this year IBS Cards found that its old celloglazing machine could no longer keep up with the work coming in. “Our previous machine was also quite haphazard when feeding sheets, and this led to many delays in production and wastage of film,” says director Mark O’Donnell.
In its search for a new machine that would not only reduce downtime but also permit more rapid throughput and faster turnaround, IBS came across the Autobond Mini TP H76 laminating machine, marketed in Australia by Graph Pak.
Mark O’Donnell recalls: “Graph Pak's machine was significantly faster in its metres per minute rate, plus it offered a duplex option. Matt celloglazing on both sides of a business card is becoming increasingly popular and these cards had to be put through our previous machine twice. Autobond's duplex solution allows us to do both sides at once. With the increase in speed of their machine we have seen our output more than double since installing the Autobond.” For IBS Cards the Heidelberg feeder, which enables continuous operation, solved all of its feeding problems.
The rising pile, back separation stream feeder handles a wide range of stock from 90gsm - 650gsm and can be used with matt or gloss polypropylene or acetate. The processor-controlled Heidelberg Speedmaster 74 feedhead receives digital data from a sophisticated encoder on the laminating roller, resulting in an accurate underlap of the grip edge of the sheet at high speed. The feeder is equipped with a mill skid plate, allowing a full pallet of print to be loaded directly from the printing press.
”The installation ran smoothly and Tom Ralph’s team was on hand to deal with all eventualities. We were up and running exactly when they said we would be,” notes a satisfied Mark O’Donnell.
