Using a recent expo in Shanghai as the spring board, JS Machine unveiled its newest development, the JS-CUBE 760 digital inline press. “Fast digital printing is the mainstay of our new digital printing system with associated inline cutting system,” says George Mills, Executive VP & Chief Technical Officer at JS Machine. “The unit has been designed to handle the rapid production of many orders of small quantities and can print a different image for each and every box that is produced.”
Mills continues, “The nozzle system at the core of the digital printing system is manufactured by a world class industry leader. Also of note is the inclusion of our own-developed ‘pick-n-place’ robots that use visual image recognition for each sheet, both at the feed unit and at the take-off.”
The placing of slots and tabs is accomplished by a servo-shear system that die-cuts the required slots and tabs. The printing unit can change orders on a piece by piece basis, while the remainder of the unit can change orders in less than 10 seconds.
“This is a real game changer,” concludes Mills. “The feedback we got from the many visitors we saw at the expo in China proves that we are on point with this new machine. The JS-CUBE 760 digital in-line is what the industry is after and it is available now. The first few machines will be installed at boxplants over the course of the coming months.”
