To extend its product lines for the wide-format sign and display makers, Agfa Graphics has added an automatic cutting plotter to its Anapurna and Jeti wide-format printer portfolio. The new Acorta is an automatic cutting and finishing plotter dedicated to the cardboard, digital printing and signage industries. It helps sign and display printers produce a wide variety of printed rigid and flexible sheet media into finished, high-impact decoration, containers, banners and more.
“Delivering POP/POS materials is more than just printing on the right substrate,” said Dominiek Arnout, Vice President for Inkjet, Agfa Graphics. “We are developing and all-integrated approach in which our customers can add an extra in-house finishing step, all driven from Asanti. Rendering, printing and cutting in one workflow allows them to be more productive and more efficient suppliers with a higher return on investment for their business.”
Acorta uses advanced technologies – such as an Auto Recognition system that automatically localizes the printed objects and the position of the reference points on the cutting table, as well as the substrate’s height – to avoid manual set-up of the job parameters.
