Increased growth at Leeds-based Marshall Print had resulted in bottlenecks in the finishing department that were resolved by a fully automated Esko Kongsberg X24 digital cutting table with conveyor belt – sourced from and installed by CMYUK.
With volume steadily increasing for printed glass manifestation, wallpaper, vinyl and CAD cut graphics, Surrey-based architectural sign specialist Signbox has invested in a Zünd S3 L1200 precision cutting system to replace hand-finishing with digital cutting to increase precision, speed of turnaround and consistency in production.
On Stand L10, Zünd UK is showcasing a new Zünd G3 3XL3200 fitted with the new 3.6kW Router, a powerful spindle featuring a pneumatic clamping system capable of routing materials at depths of up to 50mm and working with bits with shaft diameters of up to 10mm.
On Stand D50, Graphtec GB will demonstrate the new FCX2000 series of flatbed plotter/cutters. They are available in three sizes (920 x 610, 920 x 1,200 and 920 x 1,800mm) and a choice of either a vacuum suction or electrostatic material hold-down facility, with the former being more suitable for heavier and thicker materials and the latter better suited to the processing of lighter-weight media. The plotter/cutters have a maximum cutting force of 9.8N (1Kgf) and a maximum cutting speed of 400mm/sec.
