Sign & Digital UK: Get to know Primera's FX1200e Digital Finishing System
Digital label finishing has never been this fast and easy
WIESBADEN (January 29, 2013) — KTEC, UK distributor of Primera Technology Europe, is presenting the FX1200e Digital Finishing System at Sign & Digital UK. The event is being held from April 30 – May 1, 2013 in Birmingham, UK. KTEC's booth is located at stand # P74.
Primera entered the digital label printer market by introducing its CX1200e Color Label Press. CX1200e is the perfect solution for service bureaus and a broad range of manufacturers who need to print from just a few labels to tens of thousands of labels at a time. Digital label printing has many advantages versus other printing technologies, including the elimination of plates, set-up, make-ready and clean-up. The built-in electronic tensioning control system, a first for a digital press in this category, delivers perfectly-wound output rolls that are ready for off-line finishing.
Digital Label Finishing Made Easy
In combination with the new FX1200e Digital Finishing Solution Primera is offering a complete digital label production solution. The new digital finishing system is ideal for use with the CX1200e, but also suitable for use with other narrow web output engines.
The FX1200e offers, in one single process, the ability to laminate, die cut, slit, rewind and remove the waste matrix. Finishing speeds of up to 6.1 metres per minute are accomplished with Primera's patent-pending exclusive QuadraCut™ technology. QuadraCut uses up to four knife blades at a time across the web. This feature dramatically increases throughput compared to systems that have just a single blade.
One of the major benefits of this finishing system is innovation in the die-cutting process. Instead of hard tooled or flexible steel dies, the FX1200e uses digitally controlled tungsten carbide steel knife blades. This means that users never have to buy a die or wait for it to be made and delivered. Turnarounds will be faster and there is a significant saving in time and cost.
The cutter can be used to create almost any shape or size from various pressure-sensitive substrates, including matte and gloss paper, polyester, vinyl, polypropylene, BOPP and many more.
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the FX1200e is € 29,995. KTEC has the FX1200e in stock along with Primera's full range of label presses, finishing systems and applicators. Primera's products are also available from Authorized Primera Distributors in more than 222 countries.
