Create stickers, labels, decals, graphics and signage, with the added benefit of ‘half-cut’ and ‘over-cut’ functions, as well as fold lines for PoP applications making the finished items even easier to apply and more professional looking.
For precise contour cutting of printed images, such as stickers, the optical sensor detects register marks that are printed on the media. By recognising these marks, the distance to the image is calculated accurately.
By continuously detecting a maximum of 4 register marks nested images in both X and Y axis direction can be cut aligning each image automatically. Detecting one register mark is sufficient when using Mimaki’s FineCut software.
Mimaki’s original Half-Cut function produces a series of half and die-cuts leaving a few connection points that keeps the image in place. When the job is done the sticker/image can be taken out easily or the complete sheet or roll can be sent to the customer. Various media without backing sheet can also be Half-Cut.
This function detects intermediate crop marks, enabling four-point corrections for each segment.
This facility ensures accurate contour cutting over longer length prints, even if the image becomes distorted.
Machines feature an Event Notification Function to send information to pre-set e-mail addresses about completion of cutting task or errors in production, thereby enabling unattended operation and improving productivity.
Professional sign making software
