Live production demonstrations will take place throughout the show upon request. During the demonstrations, visitors will witness the production of four unique products that address a range of capabilities available to commercial printing and folding carton production. These products include:
Pocket Folder – A typical job for the commercial printer or trade finisher, the pocket folder features 16 pt. stock and a two-up layout that will be die-cut, creased and embossed in a single pass on the COMMERCIAL 106 Autoplaten® diecutter. The final operation takes place on the EXPERTFOLD 110 A-2 folder-gluer where folding and gluing creates two interior pockets and finishes the product.
Wonderfold, Crash-lock bottom carton – Demonstrates the EXPERTCUT 106 LER Autoplaten ® diecutter's ability to feed, register, die-cut, blank, strip and stack at high speed and in a single pass. The New Super Strip System and New AngleLock Receiver System demonstrates superior stripping, blanking and quick set-up capabilities.
Paris Box, Crash-lock bottom carton – The first operation on this product demonstrates the versatility of the COMMERCIAL 106 to die-cut a wide range of materials at high production speeds. The second and third operations, folding and gluing and embossing Braille on the carton, are completed at production speeds in a single pass on EXPERTFOLD 110 A-2 CS with the optional ACCUBRAILLE device.
#10 Envelope – This product highlights the COMMERCIAL 106’s ability to run (feed, diecut strip and stack) lightweight paper with speed and precision. The paper used in this demonstration is representative of common materials used by commercial printers. The COMMERCIAL 106 was specifically designed to run lightweight papers, but performs equally well when running solid board and micro-flute corrugated paperboard.
