Intec updates ColorCut500 cutter

Intec has updated its ColorCut500 digital cutter, a sheet cutting device that is aimed at those producing digital label printing and packaging prototypes.

IntecÕs ColorCut500 cutter can be used for short run labels and packaging prototypes.

It’s suitable for the production of short run sheet labels and card items for point of sale applications and swing ticketing. It can take printed paper, transparent, metallic or synthetic label media from an SRA3+ sheets up to 330x500mm. It cuts media up to 350 gsm and can auto-feed up to 100 sheets. It is fitted with dual fans to help separate sheets and counter static build up on the media. However, it can take up to 30-40 seconds per sheet.

It’s fitted with a CCD camera, for Vision Registration which reads cut marks for perfect registration and alignment. It comes with Vision Control software, which is compatible with CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator, and allows the cutter to follow any shape path.

Intec has upgraded the software so that it can now score card as well as cut and perforate different media types and thicknesses at the touch of a button. Intec says that it can create complex die-cutting of any shape and different cuts in one pass.

This all means that it can be paired with a copier or digital printer for a relatively cheap way of producing quick turnaround labels, intricate cards, tickets and point of sale packaging.

Kerry Button, director of Intec’s international sales, commented: “The ColorCut500 is easily the most affordable way to enter the lucrative label production market, especially today when customers demand increasingly faster turnarounds of more intricate shapes in labels and point of sale packaging.”
