At FESPA 2019, Intec introduced the new ColorCut FB8000PRO auto sheet-feeding flatbed cutter.

The digital cutter features the ASF8000 high-speed auto sheet feeder and the digital FB8000 digital flatbed cutter for a comprehensive packaging cutting solution, it explains. The feeder, Intec says, can stack up to 25 kg of media to a depth of 22.5 cm and automatically feeds and places printed sheets onto the flatbed’s conveyor cutting table. The flatbed cutter uses a dual tool-cutting and creasing head to deliver 1 kg of force on up to 600 micron media; cut jobs are advanced to the collection tray.

Using the bespoke ColorCut Pro3 software, operators get a live view of the process through the onboard video camera, which reads QR codes to retrieve the associated cut file and smart marks to compensate for sheet skew or printer stretch. SmartLine colours are used to determine the specific cutting/creasing/perforating functions and their preferred order.
