Finishing digital print with high register precision

Unlike conventional postpress machines, which align the sheet along the sheet edges, the new AutoRegister system for Kama’s ProCut diecutters positions each sheet individually, based on the actual print image.

Unlike conventional postpress machines, which align the sheet along the sheet edges, the new AutoRegister system for Kama’s ProCut diecutters positions each sheet individually, based on the actual print image.

A camera detects small deviations in the position of the print image (identified by a register mark) relative to the sheet edges, and servomotors correct the sheet position and move the it into the gripper with a claimed accuracy of ± 0.1mm.

Kama originally developed AutoRegister for its ProCut 53, for the common format of 530 x 400mm. Now it is also available for ProCut 76 half-format cutters. "Numerous" machines with the AutoRegister have been installed in Germany, Eastern Europe and Asia, both in basic diecutters and in finishing diecutters with a hotfoil stamping system.
