|Morgana Announces Release of AutoCut Pro
Morgana Systems, the manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced the release of its latest branded multi-function finishing unit, the AutoCut Pro.
The cutting, slitting and creasing unit has been designed for busy digital print shops that have a need for high speed creasing and trimming for a wide range of products, including business cards and promotional products.
The tri-suction feeding mechanism is able to handle paper weights from 120 to 350gsm, whilst sheet sizes can range from 210 x 210mm to 330 x 700mm in length. AutoCut Pro has a double feed detection sensor to avoid wasting valuable printed stock, as well as a skew adjustment facility and a cut mark sensor capable of reading any image drift to ensure a consistent finish without the need for operator intervention.
Running at speeds of up to 5,000 sheets per hour on standard creasing applications, a typical run of 250 business cards can be finished in less than two minutes.
Commenting on the new unit, Ray Hillhouse, vice-president offline business at Morgana, said: “This latest multi-function finishing unit takes automation to the next level, along with a production speed suited to the busiest of print facilities. Regular formats can be stored within the system for fast and accurate push button production.”
Typical production speeds include eight sheets of 21-up business card per minute (=168 cards). Ten sheets of eight up postcards per minute (= 80 postcards). Fifteen sheets of A4 needing two cuts, two slits, and one crease.
