All-Purpose, Short-Run Finishing Options
For the short-run finishing of packaging, commercial and digital materials, the KAMA ProCut 53 die-cutter and the new KAMA ProCut 76 with hot foil boast new features including an Auto-Register system that catches slight register differences and quickly adjusts every single sheet to a printing mark, ensuring that embossing, die cutting, and foiling are exact on every sheet, and giving digitally printed sheets a high-end finish. New applications for the KAMA ProFold 74 folder-gluer include a creasing, cutting and perforating unit. The new module integrates these operations in the workflow prior to folding and gluing, and works perfectly for jobs such as creased and folded greeting cards and blanks, cut and glued displays, and perforated response cards. Several accessories for short run (digital) packaging are available as well, including a lock bottom device and a pre-breaker. The new KAMA Job Planner 2.0 SW facilitates makeready by analyzing the carton design file and delivering a makeready job ticket procedure.
