United Kingdom – Intec Printing Solutions Limited, world leaders in digital imaging, continues a world-wide launch of finishing equipment with the debut of the ColorCut digital die cutter for sheet labels and packaging, at The Print Show 2016, NEC, UK.
The ColorCut 500 adds to Intec’s growing range of unique print and finishing solutions for the label market. Targeted at the light production sector the ColorCut can produce an SRA3/tabloid extra sheet of labels in 30-40 seconds, depending on label complexity. This enables users to produce between 10-1,000 sheets per day offering a quick turnaround of sheet labels.
Powered by an automatic vacuum feed pick up and pneumatic fingers, with variable suction control, the ColorCut can be tuned to cut and perforate different media types and thicknesses at the twist of a knob or touch of a button for complex die-cutting of any shape label and different cuts in one pass.
Lifting and advancing one sheet at a time, the ColorCut combines air separation jets to eliminate mis-feeds caused by static.
Vision Control® productivity software allows the operator to easily define the quantity of labels and proceeds to produce label sheets, unattended saving both time and money. Using advanced digital contour cutting technology to follow drawn cut lines in CorelDRAW® or Adobe® Illustrator®, there is no need to send out for dies to be made, or to wait while they are produced. Digital cutting is an 'on-demand’ process, simply click 'CUT' and your labels are produced to any shape, direct from your desktop. The integrated high quality imaging camera provides vision-based registration technology to detect registration marks on the label sheet ensuring crisp accurate cut lines.
Mark Baker-Homes, director of product development states “It’s the perfect complement to your digital colour printer offering automatic cut sheet labels, custom greeting cards and prototype packaging.”
Coupling the ColorCut with the ColorSplash digital colour printer or indeed any other major manufacturer’s digital printing device provides users with a low cost, versatile solution for producing quick turnaround labels, intricate cards and packaging.
