In one of the first such installations in Canada, Art Smart Digital Printing of Vaughan, Ontario has added an INcut DC-6040 Digital Finisher – a new, proprietary technology exclusively from Insource Corporation of Markham, Ontario. Insource is a leading Canadian technology supplier and a service and solutions provider for the mailing, printing, and packaging and bindery markets. Art Smart Digital owners Rick and Jane Dalmus expect the new finisher to save them from $10,000 to $15,000 annually by bringing all digital finishing processes in-house, while vastly improving short-run production efficiencies. In business for over 20 years, the company specializes in digital printing, variable data, direct mail, print personalization, posters, banners, prototype packaging, hardcover and perfect-bound books, roll-up banner stands, digitally printed silver foil inks, custom-shaped decals and much more.
Insource’s new all-in-one INcut DC-6040 is a state-of-the-art intelligent finishing solution that complements digital production with simplicity and creativity. It can automatically feed, cut, crease and kiss-cut digital sheets all in a single process, and accommodate coated and non-coated papers, folding cartons, labels, magnets, synthetic papers and other substrates. Utilizing a linear axis gantry, the INcut DC-6040 incorporates a creasing wheel, cutting tools and an optional plotting pen. Users simply add a QR code to each sheet and watch as the registration camera scans each sheet and references the correct cut file located on your computer. An automatic sheet feeder allows users to load up to 4 inches of materials. Cutting accuracy is up to 0.1 mm and, depending on the material, the new finisher can cut up to 1.5 mm/0.06 inches of thickness. The INcut can recognize files created in Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw that are exported in .PLT and .DXF format.
