Kama brings automation to print finishing

Packaging Solutions

More automation, simple operation and fast changeover – that is the promise from Kama, with the introduction of a whole range of developments for print converting, embellishment and short run folding carton production.

‘We want to support job printers and packaging manufacturers to process the ‘critical’ short runs more easily and profitably and to benefit from the megatrend towards versioning and small delivery units with our efficient solutions and streamlined processes,’ said general manager Bernd Sauter.

With 10 applications from die cutting to top class embellishment, Kama’s ProCut 76 Foil is a versatile finishing solution for the B2 format. It now comes with ‘Big Bite’. The new gripper is able to transport substrates from 100 g/m2 paper to three millimetre thick hardcover cardboard. The Big Bite gripper opens extremely wide, both, upwards and downwards, so that voluminous substrates, heat treated, wavy, laminated and corrugated sheets are guided safely through the machine. Even hardcover book cases of 3 mm thickness can be finished with hot foil or debossing on the ProCut 76, opening up new fields of application.

The new AutoRegister AR³ for the company’s die cutters achieves maximum register accuracy in finishing – even for sheets cut after printing or with multiple finishing operations. Servo motors align in x and y direction plus ‘skew adjust’. A useful and quality securing feature for the demanding packaging market, labels and tags for luxury brands and refined folding cartons, for example, for chocolates, gifts or cosmetics. Also, this reduces costs by printing in B1 format and finishing at high precision in B2.

Die cutting, creasing and automated stripping and blanking without tools in line on the Kama DC 76 die cutter with the redesigned SBU stripping and blanking unit and 30 % more performance. Setting up the machine with the programmable SBU is even more operator friendly and quickly done with the latest release of the JobManager software.

The final production step takes place on the FlexFold 52i, the automated folder gluer, providing full auto set up and fast changeovers in just five minutes. With the new in line AutoBraille (option), this efficient folder gluer becomes a solution for short runs in the secondary pharmaceutical packaging.

Both solutions, the versatile ProCut 76 die cutter and the automatic folder gluer FlexFold 52i, can be connected to the printer's MIS/ERP system for an integrated workflow.
