The new finishing system, which expands Colordyne’s suite of solutions, features the same reliable finishing technology as Colordyne’s 2800 Series Mini Laser Pro.

However, the new system laminates, laser die cuts and removes matrix waste in a single pass. It is ideal for finishing labels off-line or near-line,

Colordyne said that the solution is ideal for roll-to-roll digital printers, such as the 2600 Series Mini Press, in order to complete the short run, custom label and tag production process.

Colordyne Technologies president Andrew Matter said: “Other companies sell digital label and packaging equipment. We sell digital label and packaging solutions.

“We have brand owners and private label manufacturers using our digital printers that typically source pre-die cut material from outside vendors because they do not have the space or resources to manage a multitude of dies.

“We wanted to provide a solution for these customers to bring label finishing in-house to take full control of their label production.”

Capable of creating custom die cut blank label stock for use on digital benchtop solutions, the 2800 Series Mini Laser eliminates the need for expensive dies and knives. This makes the system more cost-effective solution long term, the firm noted.

Additionally, the system can produce more jobs in less time, with lower consumable costs as it uses laser for die cutting, unlike traditional rotary or blade cutting.

With a max cut width of 7.87 inches, max cut length of 47.24 inches and with speeds up to 60 feet per minute, the laser machine is designed to allow users to easily and affordably implement complex cuts in any quantity to create unique, custom labels.

Matter said: “We decided to offer the 2800 Series Mini Laser for companies that do more than labeling, such as brand owners and private label manufacturers. There was a gap in the market for this type of application, so we stepped in to fill it.”

The compact size and low noise level allows the 2800 Series Mini Laser to fit anywhere from a press warehouse to an office.
