German based kama gmbh is launching the new procut 74 se together with distribution partner heidelberg to expand its range of automatic die cutters for job printing, label printing and packaging printing. This "special edition" se is designed as a costeffective entry point for professional postpress processing, and performs die cutting, creasing and perforating operations as well as blind embossing to highest quality standards. "many printshops are keen to modernise their processing services and are looking for a solution which offers a rapid payback," explains kama ceo marcus tralau. "not everybody wishes to take their first steps in the print finishing market with a highend machine."
The new model has been tailored to meet the needs of basic applications encountered on a daily basis in printing shops and offers triedandtested kama technology at an attractive entrylevel price. Replacement for longserving cylinders as a result, the new procut 74 se is a perfect highperformance replacement for longserving platen press and cylinders. Offering the ultimate in register accuracy, the flatbed die cutter can process up to 4500 sheets per hour and outperforms the outgoing cylinder cutters by a factor of two to three.
Changeovers on the userfriendly machine from one job to the next are quick and easy. "with the new basic die cutter, customers can reach the breakeven point much more quickly than most would expect," explains tralau. The new procut 74 se for the format 740 x 600 mm processes paper weights ranging from 100 g to 1,500 g and is offered via distribution channels of heidelberg in most countries
