Watkiss launches digital flatbed cutter

Watkiss automation has announced a new digital flatbed cutter, the Digifust 6080, aimed at the on-demand and short run production of personalised packaging, displays, folders, point of sale material and greetings cards.

It’s been developed by the Italian finishing supplier Mamo – Watkiss is the UK distributor. It features a multi-tool holder with a pneumatic head that can cut, crease and perforate on materials up to 5mm thickness. This includes corrugated board, corrugated plastic, compressed foam board and plastic adhesive sheets. With micro-adjustable pneumatic pressure it can perform precise operations such as a kiss-cut for stickers and labels.

It accepts sheets up to 80 x 60cm. It is supplied with easy-to-use V-Studio software and includes a camera for mark detection to ensure accurate cut-to-image registration.  Tools for cutting, creasing and perforating are included as standard, with additional options for embossing and drawing.

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.
