  • Any info - Intec ColorCut flatbed Diecutter - Small, Cost Effective Die Cutter

    https://intecprinters.com/products/c...atbed-cutters/

    We're a digital printer and I'm doing some research on the Intec range of digital die cutters.
    What I like about this machine is the small footprint size and dieless cutter/creaser/perforator...basically all-in-one, which I would use on our digitally produced work.
    Does anyone use any of these Intec flatbed diecutters and what is your experience.

    SK - I have no experience of those machines but they look interesting. We do run rotary and flatbed die cutters. The entry model that you have linked to looks to be suitable for prototyping or perhaps low volume, high end stationery. It looks like it can produce 30-45 sheets per hour which would not be sufficient for most volume type production.

      We would be looking at the FB700 which can produce 2 x SRA3 sheets at a time. This is our first possible entry into die cutting which would allow us to be able to create short runs and prototypes so speed isn't really a problem. Until the time that we have a demo, I wasn't sure if this is flexible enough for the different types of cuts on jobs which come along (die cutting, kiss cutting, scoring) and also can it die cut a laminated 400gsm sheet clean enough so that it doesn't give sore edges.

        Have you seen the JWEI LST-0604-RM and/or the iEcho PK-0604?

          They look interesting too. Do you have pricing on either of them?

          I found this one on AliExpress that looks like the Intec and has the same barcode format https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2019...1-6ad7f6232bcb

            I have ordered and just had delivery of my Intec FB900.

            So far we're really happy with it. We were outsourcing a good amount of work to a local crowd with a Zund and Esko. Having the cutting in-house allows us to get jobs out the door quicker and at our quality levels.
            Very impressed with how good the registration is with the 4 rectangles in the corners.

            It does however seem to be a self learn machine (I am on the other side of the world, so there's that) but my reseller has been very prompt at emails and checks in with Intec UK when needed.
            Working now on identifying blade depth/cut pressure settings for different medias.

            I'm not sure how well it'd do laminated 400gsm. From my experience I think the crease wouldn't be deep enough even though you can do 2 passes.

              Since starting my research, I have now moved on from the FB700 which I was looking at, to the new FB9000 with sheet feeder (which we may add on at a later time). I'll send some laminated 400gsm sheets to Intec for testing to see how it fairs because it says that the machine can cut up to 450gsm.
              We have a Xerox Versant 80 digital Press. When we guillotine through solid toner areas on a 300gsm stock there is always a smooth edge and a rough edge...On your FM900, does the knife give a clean cut on both sides of the blade or do I need to laminate my sheets when cutting through solid toner areas?
              Have you found any limitations on flatbeds against plattens?

                Very interested to keep following this discussion - we are also a digital shop running a Ricoh Pro7100X and a Riso ComColor. We had for many years used a sublet die cutter for larger runs but he recently passed away. Alternatives are 3 to 4 times what he used to charge us. We need an alternative for this work and also for smaller runs. Have been checking on what's available but have not seen anything yet that seems to be a viable alternative. Scoring and Creasing are not our issue (just ordered a CreaseStream Card-Creaser for higher volume work). Currently using a one sheet at a time desk top Morgana. Will go online and check out the equipment listed above but user experience is invaluable.
