Intec launches new FB1180-T Tangential Digital Flatbed Cutter

Intec Printing Solutions has released the new ColorCut FB1180-T Tangential Flatbed Cutter, saying the machine is precise enough for kiss-cut labels yet also capable of cutting fluted boards and a diverse range of media in between.

“The FB1180-T is a very exciting leap forward for our digital cutter range. This model is the first of a series of cutters to offer a new four-tool head that includes tangential tools for deeper cutting and creasing of thicker substrates. It also hosts the new high-powered controller and expanded graphics interface that will be seen on all our digital die-cutters,” says Terri Winstanley, Intec marketing manager.

Sporting a new four-tool head, the digital flatbed cutter is perfect for on-demand prototype pieces and light production runs, cutting and creasing up to 3mm thick media. The new quad tool head includes two passive contour/drag cut and crease tools PLUS 2 active tangential tools using a new deep-cutting tangential blade and tangential crease wheel. The operator needs only select the right tools for the job at hand.

The FB1180-T offers two working modes: DIRECT mode using Intec’s ColorCut Pro software directly from a PC or HELD mode (standalone operation), where jobs can be stored internally on the cutter or from a USB stick so that anyone can cut sheets placed on the flatbed.

All Intec cutters offer instant job processing when reading a QR code and page marks printed on a sheet. However, this is no longer necessary with a fantastic new feature now included on the FB1180-T: page edge detection. Page-edge detection enables the processing of printed jobs from the rear of the sheet where there are no QR codes or page marks printed - producing accurate cutting and creasing every time.
