Masterwork USA, a manufacturer of folding carton and packaging equipment, has announced its plans for the Graphics Canada trade show next month. The Charlotte-based subsidiary of the Chinese manufacturer will be showing its new MK1060 ER automatic platen die cutter, the MK 420 MINI Q carton inspection machine and its MK1450ER automatic platen die cutting machine.
“Coming off of a very successful PRINT 13 in Chicago, we’re anticipating an equally high level of enthusiasm from our Canadian audience to see our packaging and post-press finishing equipment,” says Carol Jiang, Vice President of Masterwork USA.
The K1060 ER die cutting machine incorporates stripping and blank separation and has a maximum speed of 7,000 sph and a maximum sheet size of 1,060 x 760mm. The machine handles die cutting, embossing and pressing for all kinds of boxes for the packaging industry, especially high quality cartons for the cigarette, pharmaceutical, liquor, gift, and cosmetics markets.
The MK 420 MINI Q high-speed carton inspection machine was a Best of Category winner of the Must See ‘Ems this September at PRINT. It allows a graphic arts firm to carry out 100 percent on-line inspections throughout 24 hours of uninterrupted operation. The machine uses a unique light source that can filter the reflective light on the sheets to make the image clear and give better detection results. The MK 420MINI has a maximum running speed of 75,000 sheets/hour with a maximum sheet size of 420mmx350mm.
Masterwork’s MK1450ER automatic die cutting machine, which will be previewed at Graphics Canada. This new automatic platen die cutting machine incorporates stripping and blank separation into a one-step process. Maximum sheet size is 1450 x 1080mm and maximum speed of 6,500sph.
While not on the show floor, the company will also promote its MK21060STE Duopress foil stamping and die cutting machine, claimed to be 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.
