Product Launch - Duplo Digital Die Cutter

IDEAL SOLUTION FOR SHORT RUN ON DEMAND SHAPE CUTTING AND PACKAGING

The PFi Blade is the perfect cost effective solution for a variety of finishing requirements, such as adhesive sheets, specially shaped greeting and business cards, invitations, wedding stationery, labels, small packaging, tags and more. Increase your productivity and profitability by having an in-house multi-function digital cutting solution, designed for short-run, on demand production.

The PFi Blade enables you to Cut, Kiss Cut, Die Cut and Crease in a variety of paper and card stocks up to 1.5 mm thick and sheet sizes up to 400 x 600 mm.

Prepare the printed artwork files by adding registration marks on each corner of the sheet as well as a QR code. During operation, the CCD registration system will read the QR code and automatically pull up the matching cutting file on the PFI Connect software. It will also read the registration marks and compensate for any image shifting to ensure each sheet is accurately finished.

With a stack height of 100mm the Digi Cut maintains a productive operation. Each sheet is vacuum fed with the air knife aiding in separation then transported onto the cutting table. The feed tray elevates as sheets are fed and it can be reloaded without interrupting operation.


The PFi Blade comes included with four cutting tools and a scoring wheel, and up to 3 tools can be added in the tooling head. Set them to cut intricate shapes, kiss cut labels and stickers, and score fold lines to avoid toner cracking on packaging and folded pieces. 


The printed artwork file requires a registration mark on each corner and QR code on top left corner next to the first mark. This ensures a registration tollerance of +/- .3mm.


Create the cutting file in vector programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW to define the cuts, kiss cuts and scores desired. Export the cutting file in a number of supported formats, then upload it onto the PFi Connect software when the job is ready to run.
