Diecut Global Ltd has signed an exclusive distributor agreement for the new digital converting machine, ZERO, produced by NSK in Japan. The system is designed with a built in loading and unloading system to handle the automated future of processing. Once a job is started, the machine loads, processes and unloads jobs without an operator.
“Compared to some conventional cutting tables available today, Zero offers greater speed, efficiency and productivity which in turn provides faster delivery times for customers and offers greater cost savings for display producers,” said Steve Waterhouse, Managing Director of Diecut Global.
Every system is manufactured to order, according to selected options and requests. Zero’s design offers the ability to select table sizes, stages and tools to optimise speed and efficiency for any production environment.
As well as that, Zero is a complete processing system, using taping units on the same machine, allowing for seamless POP and POS production. The taping units are mounted on to the free stage alongside other tools and allow for precise tape application in any direction whether that is double sided tape or magnetic tape.
“We are very excited to bring the machine to the UK and the international markets in cooperation with Diecut Global,” said Masanori Fukuda, CEO of NSK. “Diecut has extensive experience in our target market and we are looking forward to a positive co-operation with their team and the success ahead.”
“The machine is the perfect addition to our portfolio,” added Waterhouse. “We are excited about this new addition as we truly believe that this is a special machine that fills a gap in the market, offering significantly increased production speeds for the print & display and corrugated markets. We will be showcasing the machine next year at Drupa.”
