The updated Hans-Gronhi LC330RE Roll to Roll Laser Die Cutter from Hans-Shinohara Canada saves time and money while allowing users to offer exciting new short-run printing and finishing products to their clients faster and more cost-efficiently. Its popular 13″ width can accommodate most narrow-web flexo printers, as well as the HP Indigo 6900 and 8000 digital presses. The fully automated, computer driven, roll-to-roll laser cutter/engraver is also ideal printers who want to improve cutting precision compared to traditional mechanical die cutting. Its Optical Laser Tracking Systems ensures precise positioning while its Automatic Tension Control improves stability. Adjustable laser-powered cutting speeds can be used for different jobs and with different materials. Additional laser heads can be added as needed. Built-in technology also includes laminating, slitting and waste discharge capabilities, as well as a manual feeder for special materials.
The LC330RE can also laser-engrave quickly and accurately on a wide variety of traditional and difficult substrates with ease. This opens up exciting new product and revenue opportunities for printers. Common applications include multi-shaped digital labels and security printing (can generate barcodes, numbering, etc.). Cutting speed is from 1 foot up to 196 feet per minute (depending on the specific application). Maximum roll diameter is 19.7” with sheet widths from 2” to 12.9” and a maximum scan capability of 12.59.” The LC330RE includes a colour code sensor and auto deviation correction technology for consistent and accurate positioning. It will be displayed in the Hans-Shinohara booth (#5616) at the Graphics Canada Tradeshow taking place April 11-13 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
