Showcard Print has taken delivery of an Elitron TAV-R 32.22 automatic cutting system to make shorter runs more cost effective and strengthen its cardboard engineering offering.
“The TAV is a great addition, giving us the ability to accurately cut a whole range of materials at high speed, and it will significantly strengthen our cardboard design capability, which is a key growth area for us” said MD Mark Smith.
The Elitron TAV is the third major investment that Showcard has made this year following the purchase of an Inca Onset X3 and Lamina Blackline. The new TAV machine, supplied by UK distributor Atech, will increase the company’s versatility.
The TAV is a double-headed automatic cutter with a working area of 3200 x 2200mm. The two digitally controlled, independent heads can cut at a 45 degree angle and crease materials up to 20mm thick. The machine can pick up the printed sheet and the cut waste.
