This machine allows die cutting without operator on adhesive sheets and digital prints on cardboard, silk-screen prints and print shop materials.
A mobile lever lifts the sheets from the loading-feeding tray and inserts them into the plotter.
Depending on the thickness of the sheets, the machine may insert from 40 to 120 sheets; while the machine is in operation, additional sheets may be added without having to stop the machine.
The system is equipped with an internal vacuum compressor, which does not require external air connections.
Proper alignment is achieved by black mark reading for every sheet; a camera equipped with i-mark technology performs black mark reading adjustments in a few tenths of a second.
Black mark reading offsets grade and distortion which occur using digital printing systems; the precision grade achieved is approximately 0.0079” (0.2mm).
This innovative desktop-style cutter is capable of handling various types of material with different thicknesses, and sheet sizes such as A4, A3, Letter, Tabloid and Tabloid Extra format.
Speed varies depending on the complexity of the outline, on average it runs 30-40 seconds when cutting adhesives, while for through cutting the speed is much slower and therefore it is more apt for small jobs or simple cuts.
Black mark reading through a dedicated camera and the i-mark software allows the use of black marks as small as 0.16” (4mm). This allows maximizing the use of the sheet and minimizing excess material. A border of 0.79” (20mm) on two sides must be maintained whereas on the other two sides, the machine can cut up to the edge of the paper even though users usually leave a gap of 0.20” (5mm), which is also the usual border used in laser printers.
Automatic cutting may be used without black mark reading when precision cutting is not required.
