For the quick, efficient and exact positioning of Clichés/Dies, KAMA offers the new CPX positioning system.  Clichés are mounted with high register accuracy on the mounting plate in a single step.  This saves time and money. The system calculates the exact target position, which is already temperature-corrected, for a quick, targeted positioning of the clichés on the mounting plate.  Another advantage of this method is that because the clichés are positioned outside of the stamping machine, the machine is able to process another job in the meantime. The CPX is suitable for any positioning work concerning orders with hot foil, hologram and blind embossing, as well as for the setting of die-cutting tools.
The KAMA cliché positioning system (models CPX 74 and CPX 105) can be fitted to all KAMA ProCut die-cutters and is also adaptable to other flatbed stamping systems.
 

Benefits

  • Saving in set-up time - Quick cliché mounting at highest register accuracy outside the cutting machine.
  • Precise positioning - The CPX reads the work files directly, computes the target position and indicates it on the monitor. The actual cliché position recorded by a camera is laid on top on the monitor without shades.
  • Easy to operate - The clichés are mounted to the indicated target position is one step. Thermal expansion of mounting plate and clichés is calculated and compensated for automatically.
  • Versatility - For any positioning work on hot foil and hologram stamping modules, magnetic plates, hot cut systems and universal chases.

DRUPA 2016

Although Friedheim International does not have a stand at DRUPA 2016, the majority of the companies that Friedheim represents in the UK & Ireland will be participating – KAMA being one of them:

Hall 2 / Stand A15

Among the highly innovative machine solutions for trend-setting short runs and digital packaging printing KAMA is demonstrating at this year’s DRUPA are the DC 76 ASB – an automatic die-cutter with the latest in servo technology, and the newly developed KAMA FF 52i – the first folder-gluer dedicated to short runs.

 

Innovation for short-run folding cartons: KAMA launches at DRUPA the FF 52i folder-gluer which features extremely fast start-up

KAMA’s combined solution has been optimised for very fast job and format changes and electronic job tickets, and perfectly fits into the digital workflow by carrying out all the applications from the printed sheet to the ready-to-deliver folding box.  The inclusion of AutoRegister and the SBU stripping and blanking unit, which works without the use of any tools, adds to the speed and flexibility of the process.

With the extremely short set-up times, faster finishing, in-line stripping without tools and automated set-up, the solution paves the way for making short-run converting of folding boxes both efficient and profitable. 

A highlight for the commercial market is the ‘Generation S’ version of the versatile ProCut range of automatic die-cutters, with servo technology and a synchronous main drive that delivers more power and flexibility for the professional finisher.

A further highlight of the stand included amongst the die-cutters on show is the servo-controlled hot foil stamping unit, which is capable of producing up to 50% more performance and greater flexibility for the professional finisher.
