KalaXY trimmer to debut in UK

Kala has launched a new automatic X-Y trimmer, the KalaXY, which is designed for the wide format market. The new machine demonstrates Kala’s strategy to move into more automated cutting.

It’s aimed at the entry-level end of the market and uses a manual element for adjusting the machine’s light cutting guide. It can cut substrates up to 1mm thick, including photo paper, vinyl, laminated substrates, light PVC banner and polyester films.

It has a maximum cutting width of 1,650mm has been deliberately designed to be compatible with the width of Kala’s existing laminator range. It has a maximum roll media diameter of 250mm, an operating speed of up to 18m/min and a cross trimming blade speed of up to 120m/min.

It will be shown at this month’s Sign and Digital show and is distributed in the UK by Colourgen.
