Smarter software sharpens Sabre’s cutting edge

New software upgrades to AB Graphic International’s Digicon SabreXtreme laser label cutter help to streamline overall production and expand on converting applications.

The new upgrades were featured at Labelexpo Europe 2011, running three jobs with non-stop digital die changeover and variable data capability. The system on show featured digital cold oil application through inkjet technology to apply the adhesive without the use of printing plates, and a Tidland automatic slit change pattern system for non-stop operation.

“The software on the SabreXtreme is continuously being upgraded in line with the availability of new technology and applications,” says Al Spendlow, VP of ABG’s US operation. “Sales of the system are increasing and new opportunities are being identified. For example, we recently supplied a SabreXtreme to a digital printer that enabled them to eliminate die charges and move from out sourcing and drop shipments to in-house production with significant cost savings.”

SabreXtreme laser technology dispenses with the need for conventional diecutting tools and the costs associated with production and storage. It meets the increasing demand for shorter print runs and is capable of producing hundreds of different die patterns a day.

The system offers network connection enabling a company’s art department to directly load a library of label cutting patterns to run; and the Windows-based software permits all machine settings to be saved for repeat jobs.
