Automating wide format cutting
customers with new ser vices, the
ability to take projects in-house to
reduce lead time and cost, while
lowering labour and material wastage.
Paul Nevell of Trannys, a digital
photographic and display printer is one
of the many examples of customers
that have benefited from purchasing
an Ocè ProCut solution from Canon.
Paul states “With over 40 years in
business, the Océ Procut is the best
big ticket item we have ever bought.
It paid itself off in less than 12 months
and allowed us to create new products
which previously didn’t even exist.”
SPICERS, which has offices in eight
locations around Australia, supplies
Elitron cutting systems including the
Kombo SD range, the Kombo TH, and
the Kombo TAV.
The Kombo SD range is dedicated
to respond to the new requirements
of the cardboard, digital printing and
signage industries. This flexible die-less
finishing system (made of solid cellular
steel) has automatic tool pre-setting
and a multi-tool cutting head for
cutting, creasing and milling materials
up to 120mm thick.
The Kombo TH is a dual gantry
cutting table, hence it is twice as fast
as similar machines. Its ability to cut
two boards simultaneously is just one
of its features. The Kombo TAV is a dual
gantry, fully automated cutting table,
and is currently the only SuperPlotter
with two different cutting heads on
the market. The machine is integrated
with Airo Panel unloading of materials,
a power ful vacuum panel that removes
all worked and waste materials with
great force, and without any scraps
being left behind.
Elitron’s Systems can be equipped
with the exclusive Elitron-patented
Seeker System digital eye for the
automatic recognition of images
and reference points, and the
Video Projection feature, to ensure
the best possible material yield.
Elitron has a presence in 49
countries and has more than 2000

THE Kongsberg line-up of digital
cutting and finishing devices from
Esko offers speed, reliability and
rich featuring – for printers cutting
and finishing signage, packaging
or displays – across the substrate
spectrum, be it vinyls, boards or wood.
The Kongsberg XN is especially known
for its versatility.
Available in seven sizes from 1680
cutting tables offers a comprehensive
choice of specialty tools for speed,
power and flexibility to automatically
handle a wide variety of materials, such
as corrugated, folding car ton, solid
board, foam, coating blankets, wood
and a long list of plastics.
Perhaps the most attractive selling
point of the XN range is its Multicut-
HP (high performance) tool head,
which can also be retrofitted to Esko’s
Kongsberg cutting tables. Enhanced
spindle technology allows the
Kongsberg XN to handle tougher
substrates at a much higher speed
than the previous generation of
milling technology. Increased cutting
per formance of more than three times
more productive than the XL makes
short work of jobs like aluminium di-
bond, foam PVC and acr ylic.
The XN range employs Esko’s
standard iCut Vision system, which
makes the cutting table easy to use.
The table operation is straightforward,
with initial operator training ranging
from one to three days, depending on
ZUND’S S3 digital cutter, available
locally from Starleaton Digital
Solutions, permits variable production
workflows. Carefully thought out
material handling options on the S3
are designed to increase production
capacity manifold. With non-stop
tandem operation, for example,
loading, unloading and processing all
occur at the same time.
The zippy S3 line of cutters places
the accent on speed. The exceptional
speeds of the
S3 series are the
result of intelligent
an advanced drive
system and sophisticated
tooling. Optimally synchronised
cutting, perforating, marking and
routing tools complete the system.
S3 cutters can be changed,
expanded and upgraded any time.
Modular tooling allows for processing
a wide variety of materials up to a
maximum thickness of 25mm. Various
levels of automated material handling
turn the S3 into a compelling all-
round production system. Innovation
distinguishes every aspect of the Swiss-
built S3 line.
tooling and material handling
systems make it easy to customise
the S3 system to specific cutting
needs. Print houses can define their
production requirements and select
the building blocks that will make
up the appropriate configuration.
