DPR Middle East (stand 2G24) will be showcasing the newly-released Gemini desktop sheet finishing systems plus the Scorpio digital finishing systems at Gulf Print & Pack 2019.
The Gemini is an automatic sheet feeding and cutting system designed to automatically load and cut without the need of an operator. This innovative desktop cutter is capable of handling a variety of thickness and sheet sizes such as A4, A3, letter, tabloid and tabloid extra. Equipped with a Graphtec plotter, cuts can be made on adhesive sheets, silk screen prints, shop material prints and digital prints on cardboard. With a newly designed ramp style loading tray and a wheel system, sheets can automatically be loaded into the plotter interruption free, cut, then dispensed into the catch tray all with ease.
The unit is equipped with two cameras to assist in reading the black marks after each sheet is loaded all within a fraction of a second. This is done while working in tandem with the cutting management software resulting with a cut precision of 0.2mm. It has the ability to do perforation cuts (small dots), kiss cuts (half cuts), and die cuts (heavy cuts) for applications such as labels, business cards, shaped business cards, small boxes and more.
Scorpio (pictured above) is the perfect match for wide-format digital colour label presses. It is all-in-one system that unwind, laminates for durability, digitally die-cuts, removes waste, slit, and rewind offering you everything to professionally cut and finish labels. The system provides a very accurate label finishing solution using cutting plotter technology. This allows you to cut different types of material and shapes on the fly without the added cost of dies. All features that turn into full flexibility, limitless variations in label design and smooth workflow. The simple-to-use integrated software works together with a camera forming an integrated optical black-mark registration system, making the cutting operation easy and fast. Cutting blank labels on the Scorpio is hassle free. With the help of the cutting manager software, operators will only need to set label step, meaning there is no need to load media with a pre-printed black mark. Scorpio is the digital label finisher truly meant to meet the on-demand short run label finishing solution, for use with digital colour label printers and presses.
