With the automatic knife box mounted on a GM converting line, the operator can set all the knives in a few seconds by using the barcode scanner. For repeat jobs, the barcode can be printed on the substrate, and thus set the knives automatically to save time.
Also new and on display is the DC330FB, a version which includes a flat-bed screen printer and hot stamping with a foil tower.
The company has also launched a new slitter rewinder, the LST330, which features multiple knife systems on the same unit (razor, shear and crush).
Also on display is GM’s ETV330 high-speed sheeter with a guillotine cutter suitable for cutting labels and heavy materials both in-line and off-line; and the PNTS automated core cutter, which provides high precision feeding and cutting of cardboard cores at high speeds.
The company has its units at a number of other stands at the show, including a DC330Mini on Konica Minolta’s stand (8C54); a LC330, featuring a laser die-cutter, at the Epson booth (9A50); and a DC330 with standard configurations, spot varnish and new auto-knife box on the Xeikon stand (9C50).
Grafisk Maskinfabrik, more commonly known as GM, has provided converting systems for the labelling industry for more than three decades. With agents worldwide and offices in Denmark, the US and Chile, GM’s machines are developed and produced in the small town of Birkerød just outside Copenhagen.
