POLAR Mohr Expands with Digicut Laser Cutter for Processing Single Sheets
HOFHEIM, Germany—May 21, 2015—With Digicut, POLAR Mohr offers a device for the creative processing of single sheets. The laser cutter can cut, perforate, crease and engrave in one pass—without the need for a tool change.
The innovative laser technology opens up numerous possibilities for digital and commercial printers. The laser enables the most intricate contours to be not only cut, but also perforated, creased and engraved—all in a single pass and on a wide variety of materials.
There are practically no limits when it comes to the contour. Because a laser is used, there are also no additional tool costs. As a result, batches from one single copy to several hundred can be produced very economically.
A small selection of products that can be manufactured with the Digicut include: cards, invitations, envelopes, folders, writing paper, samples, business cards, place cards, lanterns, jigsaws and bookmarks.
Digicut uses a laser beam tool. Today, laser technology is already used in many areas of day-to-day life: from a simple laser pointers used in presentations or distance measuring devices through to CD players.
Laser cutting is a thermal separating method for flat-lying material. The material is processed without any contact and therefore does not need to be fixed. The material itself is vaporized on the surface in fractions of a second as a result of the laser energy. This sounds more dangerous than it is. Like POLAR's cutting machines, the Digicut also meets the high POLAR safety standard, which is confirmed by the GS mark.
