At drupa 2016, Heidelberg and Polar Will Showcase New Cutting and Laser Machines
HOFHEIM, Germany — March 15, 2016 — In Hall 1, Polar and its sales partner Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, will once again be presenting a wide range of solutions for handling the most diverse market demands. The highlights are the two new products: the Polar D 115 cutting machine and Polar Digicut PRO.
On the stand covering 350 sq. m., Polar will show a wide selection of solutions for commercial printers, finishing businesses and digital printers, from solo cutting machines and CuttingSystem 200 through to the automated CuttingSystem Pace. Label printers who attach great importance to first-class cutting precision hand in hand with maximum productivity, will be especially interested in LabelSystem DC-11 plus. An enhanced version of the well-established P-Net Compucut for generating cutting programs off the machine will be presented.
Polar D 115 Cutting Machine
Polar D 115 is an upward extension of Polar's portfolio of hydraulic cutting machines. Besides the hydraulic knife drive system, this cutting machine is characterized by its sound construction with optimized cast frame and sheet metal casing. A distortion-free machine table with corrosion-free surface and air nozzles ensures easy material handling. The D 115 cutting machine is developed from scratch for digital printers and commercial printers with occasional cutting jobs.
After the very successful market launch of Digicut ECO last year, the laser cutter family now has another new member in the shape of Digicut PRO. While Digicut ECO was designed for small runs, Digicut PRO is meant for industrial production. On Digicut PRO, the material is automatically transported over a flat pile feeder and into a cutting cabin where it is lasered on-the-fly. This makes Digicut PRO the right machine for handling large runs, especially in printing houses and finishing businesses. With its Digicut family, Polar is offering interesting and creative finishing solutions. A laser allows the most intricate contours to be cut in diverse materials and there are practically no limits when it comes to the contour.
An independent family business, Polar develops efficient solutions in the post-press branch and positions itself as a global, trend-setting technology company. The range of products includes components and systems for networking and automating various processes from loading, via jogging, cutting and diecutting right through to unloading and banding. Polar has been producing cutting machines that are perfect for Print-on-Demand markets working with formats up to 46x64 cm under the MOHR brand since 2012. Another member of the Polar Mohr group is Dienst Verpackungstechnik, a business producing components and systems for the automatic packaging of goods, primarily in the food industry.
