Polar has launched DCC-12, a new die-cutter, which will be presented during a Label Day in Wiesloch, Germany, at the end of April.
The DCC-12 was developed for highly automated in-line production of bundled die-cut labels made of compressible plastic materials and is claimed to be the fastest system on the market. It will be showcased in Wiesloch at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen on April 25. The company is already taking demo appointments, both live and remotely, that can be arranged independently from the event.
The new system offers a new industrial control system that, among other things, allows remote maintenance and diagnostics. Thanks to a 25 percent increase in productivity, it achieves an output of 10 cycles per minute with minimal personnel requirements. This makes the system suitable for dual-use as other die-cutters are often not efficient enough for paper label printing.
Polar LabelSystem DCC-12 also scores in sustainability: the die-cutter can handle label packs without cardboard, creating mono material waste that can be optimally recycled. Due to the ventilation of the punching irons, the waste can be sucked off directly so that even acute-angled shapes under 90 degrees can be punched without any problems.
