Agfa develops cutting table

Agfa Graphics has launched a wide format cutting plotter, the Acorta, to complement its range of printers.

It’s a highly automated table that can cut at up to 102 m/min with minimum operator intervention. There are 40 vacuum zones that are automatically activated where and when needed.

It has an auto recognition system that can automatically locate the printed objects and the position of the reference points on the cutting table, as well as the substrate’s height so that there’s no need to manually set-up the job parameters.

Dominiek Arnout, vice president for inkjet at Agfa Graphics, explained: “We are developing and all-integrated approach in which our customers can add an extra in-house finishing step, all driven from Asanti.  Rendering, printing and cutting in one workflow allows them to be more productive, more efficient suppliers with a higher return on investment for their business.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.

However, there are costs involved in travelling to cover events, as well as maintaining this site, not to mention the time that it takes to carry out research, check facts and interview people. So if you value this work, then please help to maintain it and keep it free to read.
