This outstanding machine handles die cutting, embossing and pressing for all kinds of boxes for the packaging industry especially sophisticated high-quality cartons for the cigarette, pharmaceutical, liquor, gift, and cosmetic markets. It boasts a maximum speed of 7,000 sph and a maximum sheet size of 1,060 x 760mm.  Users will find that the MK1060 ER reduces operator fatigue, increases performance and productivity, and provides higher profit margins.

Must See ‘Em honoree: the MK 420 MINI Q carton inspection system

The MK 420 MINI Q high-speed, high precision carton inspection machine, which was not only named a Must See ‘Em at PRINT 13 but also a Best of Category winner, allows a graphic arts firm to increase production capacity, reduce costs, and carry out 100% on-line inspections throughout 24 hours of uninterrupted operation.  The Mini’s new technology removes the cumbersome human inspection process with its inefficiency and inaccuracy and allows the 420MINI’s high-speed CCD camera to detect the slightest deviations from the standard sample. The 420MINI Q has a highly-adjustable patented light source that can make meticulous and accurate adjustments according to the different printing processes, such as laser or holographic foil stamping. This light source, found only on MK machines, can filter the reflective light on the sheets to make the image clear and give the best detection results. The MK 420MINI offers a maximum running speed of 75,000 sheets/hour. It will take a maximum sheet size of 420mmx350mm and a minimum sheet size of 70mmx70mm.

Masterwork representatives will also be providing  one-on-one discussions about the new MK21060STE Duopress foil stamping and die cutting machine with stripping provides the solution. While not on the show floor, Masterwork will be offering information on the Duopress, the world’s first and only double-station machine designed with a one-pass integrated system combining the platen through the embossing and foil stamping onto the die cutting and stripping functions. The two-platen system boasts a maximum output speed of 6,000 sheets per hour, but because multiple passes with two platens run at one time, users realize an output of 12,000 sheets per hour. Its optimized pressure adjustment provides a better foil stamping result. Its patented design of the adjusting mechanism ensures that the two units have high register accuracy. A separate power-driven waste conveyor belt is capable of removing waste at a high speed.
