Morgana Systems has announced details of its participation in this year’s Packaging Innovations exhibition, taking place at the NEC, Birmingham on 26 and 27 February.
The company, making its first appearance at the event, can be found on stand H12. It will be showcasing its rotary die cutter, the RDC, and the Valiani range of flatbed cutters.
Commenting on the decision to exhibit at Packaging Innovations, Wendy Baker, Morgana Systems’ marketing manager, said: ‘We have decided to attend because packaging is a potential growth area for us as we have two great machines that fit into this market sector. Packaging Innovations as a show has a great reputation in the industry and is the ideal place to meet with UK based packaging specifiers and producers.
‘We are keen to show two products in particular: the Valiani is suitable for a wide variety of applications including cutting boxes and point of sale displays. It is ideal for very short runs, for prototyping, or producing test-marketing runs of products. The Morgana Rotary Die Cutter (RDC) is ideal for short to medium run packaging, cards, or other custom shaped products.’
The cutting system is composed of an upper magnetic cylinder, holding the cutting matrix, and a lower counter cylinder. A pin register system on the magnetic cylinder helps the operator to install the cutting matrix accurately. Side alignment of sheets is managed by adjustable straps, allowing the machine to maintain accurate sheet position.
An easily adjustable waste management system separates and diverts waste material whilst giving a consistent supply of the finished pieces to a conveyor delivery.
The top sheet, air suction deep pile feeder ensures reliable sheet feeding, can accommodate up to 400 mm of printed sheets, whilst an eight-inch touch screen user interface provides for fast and efficient job change overs.
Maximum sheet size for the RDC is 368 x 508 mm, with a maximum die cutting area of 361 x 472 mm. Material thicknesses of up to 400 g/m can be cut.
Valiani flatbed cutters
All Valiani flatbed cutter models feature a patented tool change mechanism. Tools can be changed in less than 30 seconds, moving from cutting to creasing, perforating, embossing, plotting, writing and drawing. These machines minimise waste and are suitable for a variety of applications including frame mountboard cutting, boxes and displays, contour cutting, embossing, stickers and making packaging prototypes and mock ups. The units are available in a vacuum version for demanding applications.
