Elitron wons again the EDP AWARDS thanks to the new Kombo TAV V2
The Commission of The European Digital Press Association (EDP) awarded Elitron’s Kombo TAV V2, the latest fully automatic cutting system, with best “Wide Format Cutting Solution 2021″.
Monte Urano, 11th February 2022 –Elitron is once again on the podium for innovation and “this recognition again clearly highlights Elitron’s investment in automation and continued commitment to Research & Development, in line with market requirements” comments Paolo Malatesta, Elitron’s Executive Director.
The EDP Technical Committee recognised that the Kombo TAV V2 is the most compact, floor to floor, fully automatic cutting solution forbespoke packaging and displays.
The new Kombo TAV V2 is the only system able to load and unload stacks of up to 1555mm of printed and non-printed materials.
This extremely versatile, fully automatic, cutting system can be loaded and unloaded from the front end, in-line, or alternatively can be loaded and unloaded from the side, as indicated in the diagram.
For sheets up to 3200 x 2200mm, this flexible loading and unloading means that the overall system footprint is kept to a minimum and can fit into production sites where space is critical.
From floor to floor – the full process:
Preloading preparation: each individual sheet is aligned prior to loading, to guarantee precision.
Preloading: sheets are scanned using the incorporated, patented Seeker System, on either the face-up or face-down side in order to read the printed images and reference points, and automatically load the cutting files. The sheet is then moved to a buffer position. This saves time as the process takes place whilst the previous sheet/s are being cut and creased.
Loading: single sheets or multiple sheets are loaded to fully fill the working area, to maximise productivity.
Recognition: Stacks and individual jobs can be recognised as described above or the job can be identified using a printed barcode or QR code.
Cutting & Creasing: The concentrated vacuum working area, with up to 32 vacuum sectors, is automatically activated where the cutting heads are working, in order to hold even the smallest pieces in place. A perfect hold results in highest quality cutting results.
Two independent gantries and two cutting heads work simultaneously over the entire working area. Their workload is assigned automatically by Elitron’s Twin Cut software and each cutting head comes with up to 5 tools.
Unloading: The patented Airo Panel makes light of unloading and stripping as no nicks are necessary. Single and multiple sheets are unloaded in one go using the powerful vacuum Airo Panel. Both product and waste materials are unloaded and deposited in the unloading bay, and the nick-free sheets are ready for the next process.
“We are proud that our new, innovative, automatic cutting system is associated with the EDP Technical Committee label of excellence” – declared Giuseppe Gallucci CEO of Elitron – “as this represents yet again proof of the added technological value we continually strive to offer our customers.”
Elitron is once more at the forefront in terms of innovation and automation and thanks the EDP Technical Committee for yet another prestigious award.
