Vijayawada’s JC Graphics, which specializes in packaging and commercial printing, stationery printing and the monocarton business, has recently installed an MK Easymatrix 106CS automatic die-cutter.
“We believe that we share the same values as Heidelberg, like commitment to quality printing. So, we keep coming back for more,” says Karunakar, managing director of JC Graphics. The firm already has an ISO12647-2-certified Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102.
Motorized cutting pressure adjustment for up to 260 tons helps the Easymatrix 106CS perform die-cutting and embossing operations at a speed of 7,700 with thickness ranging from 0.1 mm to 2 mm and corrugated board up to 4 mm without any changes in the feeder. Other features include non-stop rake delivery for uninterrupted production during pile changes and a Quick-Lock system to increase the speed and accuracy of the die-cutting process. The quick-Lock system ensures rapid and precise positioning of tools on the stripping frame, eliminating time-consuming, manual re-positioning of tools for each production run.
“The price-performance ratio is excellent. Faster make-ready times, nonstop processing and efficient operations lead to cost-effective and improved productivity. After-sales support from Heidelberg for Easymatrix is the high point,” Karunakar comments.
“The Easymatrix 106CS is also a value addition for commercial printers looking to bring die-cutting and embossing operations in-house, instead of outsourcing these activities. The die-cutter can process high-quality foil, plastic and cardboard substrates with ease,” adds Lalitkumar, product manager, postpress packaging solutions, Heidelberg India.
“As we relentlessly strive to enhance our print offerings and customer experience, investing in the right technologies becomes imperative. Heidelberg is the brand we continue to lean on for innovative and insight-driven technologies,” concludes Dinakar.
