Agfa Graphics, to extend its portfolio in signage and display markets, has added an automatic cutting plotter for use with its Anapurna and Jeti wide-format printing systems.
“Delivering POP/POS materials is more than just printing on the right substrate,” said Dominiek Arnout, VP for Inkjet at Agfa Graphics. “We are developing and all-integrated approach in which our customers can add an extra in-house finishing step, all driven from Asanti.”
Acorta is designed to finish both rigid and flexible sheet media. The company points to the system's auto recognition system, which automatically localizes the printed objects and the position of the reference points on the cutting table, as well as the substrate’s height.
Acorta features cutting speeds of up to 102 metres per minute with maximum automation and minimum operator intervention. Its 40 vacuum zones are automatically activated where and when needed.
Acorta is available now and will make its worldwide debut at the SGI 2015 tradeshow in Dubai from January 11-13, 2015.
