Published on 2005-09-20. Author : SpecialChem

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA -- Spartanics announces that it will be the new manufacturer of Klemm Laser Cut Systems for Digital Die Cutting, as well as coordinator of the worldwide sales and service organization for the new Spartanics Klemm Laser Cut Systems. This technology transfer enables Spartanics to provide its worldwide customers in the graphic arts, packaging, nameplate and ID graphics, abrasives, labels, adhesives, and other industries the most optimized solution for their high precision die cutting production challenges.

Tom Kleeman, Spartanics CEO explains that printers, packagers and others in need of high precision die cutting capabilities will find this a perfect marriage of the well-respected German engineering expertise with Spartanics' well-known capabilities in machine controls, software and optics engineering, and detailed familiarity with the types of production challenges faced by its customers in the graphic arts, converting, nameplate, label, and related industries.

Kleeman says, "Like all Spartanics equipment, the Spartanics Klemm Laser Cut Systems feature a modular design for the ultimate flexibility that facilitates customization for any customer applications. Moreover, the new Spartanics Klemm Digital Die Cutters deliver consistent registration accuracy within +/- 0.1 mm, without any sacrifice in speed and production output, just as the Spartanics optically-registered M500 Decorated Material Die Cutting Systems do. By adding these tool-free die cutters to Spartanics repertoire, and especially because they give our customers new capabilities to die cut (kiss cut, mark, perforate, etc.) a wider range of materials including adhesives, abrasives, polycarbonates, wood, among others, Spartanics is able to find best-in-class solutions for any high precision production-volume die cutting challenge."

Bill Knotts, Spartanics VP Sales and Marketing, adds, "Spartanics now offers tool-based and tool-free die cutting systems. If one requires a complete job turnaround within hours based on digital printing combined with digital die cutting, we have the best solution possible. Or, if one needs to be able to alternate hard tooling with steel rule dies, we have the best solution possible. Basically, the combined Spartanics and Klemm Laser Cut System engineering expertise gives graphic arts, packaging, label manufacturers, ID graphics and other firms more than seven decades of engineering experience to draw on to solve their production challenges."

Spartanics Klemm Digital Die Cutters operate at speeds up to 600 m/minute and feature the most tightly controlled laser beam technology available in galvanometers, and unique, proprietary software that automates controls on laser power and scanning speed for unparalleled control in laser cut quality. The 0.5 mm hole size, easy-to-use intuitive Windows-based software designed for operators without CAD expertise, and the intelligent system for beam shaping, are some of the Spartanics Klemm Digital Die Cutting System features that make it best-in-class technology. Spartanics Klemm Digital Die Cutting Systems come with a wide array of options for scrap removal, and can be configured for sheet-fed or coil-fed operations.

Hands-on demonstrations of the Spartanics Klemm Digital Die Cutting System will be showcased in Spartanics Booth #2255 at SGIA 05 in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 28 – October 1, 2005.

Rolling Meadows, Illinois-headquartered Spartanics engineers and manufactures a range of automated equipment for die cutting, automated handling, and counting used by global graphic arts and packaging firms, among others. Its worldwide service organization also maintains offices and spare parts in the UK.
