Polar customers have upgraded to IntelliKnife intelligent knife developed and marketed by hagedorn.
IntelliKnife is claimed to be the first intelligent knife on the market. It offers transparency in the cutting process and the precise evaluation of cutting data.
The operating data from the knives can be used to identify potential for optimization. IntelliKnife can also improve knife service life and cutting accuracy.
According to hagedorn, since the introduction of IntelliKnife, several Polar customers have already ordered the system and retrofitted existing machines with it. These include well-known both online and commercial printers.
Hendrik Kneusels, head of Sales and Service at Polar, said: ‘The high level of demand for means to increase the efficiency of printing and finishing operations stems from the need to obtain holistic transparency of operational data. With IntelliKnife, even Polar E/ED generation machines can be lifted into the new technological era.’
IntelliKnife is developed and distributed by knife manufacturer hagedorn. Polar was involved in the development and implementation as a technology partner.
