Elitron Kombo TAV V2 honoured with Best Wide Format Cutting Solution EDP Award

February 04, 2022

Every year, Europe's 21 leading trade magazines for digital productions techniques evaluate the latest developments - products such as software and hardware, digital printing devices, periphery, post press solutions and consumables. The best products in their respective category are honoured with an EDP Award.

Due to the pandemic, the EDP Awards 2021, ‐ were again presented on January 31, 2022 in an online presentation to a total of 26 winners, who convinced the jury of the European Digital Press Association (EDP) with their products. The desired awards were presented for the 15th time. Due to the worldwide Covid situation, which again put the organization team to the test of patience, originally planned dates had to be postponed again and again.

The EDP Awards are Europe's only technology assessment in the industry and an open competition for all products announced and launched in the market within a year. The winners are selected by a commission of experts (the EDP Technical Committee), which evaluate the submitted products according to criteria such as innovation, quality, performance and cost. Due to these strict criteria, there are no voting or other public votes. It is about technical criteria, not popularity. This is the only way EDP can guarantee that manufacturers' achievements in developing new technologies will be recognized. Thus, the logo of the EDP Awards stands for innovation and quality, offering orientation and providing a neutral recommendation for purchase decisions of users.

Winners: FINISHING Best wide format cutting solution: Elitron Kombo TAV V2

Elitron’s new Kombo TAV V2 is the most compact, floor to floor, fully automatic cutting solution for bespoke packaging and displays.  It is the only system able to load and unload stacks of up to 1555mm of printed and non-printed materials.

This extremely versatile, fully automatic, cutting system can be loaded and unloaded from the front and end, in-line or alternatively can be loaded and unloaded from the side. This flexible loading and unloading means that the overall system footprint is kept to a minimum and can fit into production sites where space is critical.

The floor to floor solution

Preloading preparation: each individual sheet is aligned prior to loading, to guarantee precision.

Preloading: sheets are scanned using the incorporated, internationally patented, Seeker System, on either the face-up or face-down side in order to read the printed images and reference points, and automatically load the cutting files. The sheet is then moved to a buffer position. This saves time as the process takes place whilst the previous sheet/s are being cut and creased.

Loading: single sheets or multiple sheets are loaded to fully fill the working area, in order to maximise productivity.

Recognition: Stacks and individual jobs can be recognised as described above or the job can be identified using a printed barcode or QR code.

Cutting & Creasing: The concentrated vacuum working area, with up to 32 vacuum sectors, is automatically activated where the cutting heads are working, in order to hold even the smallest pieces in place. A perfect hold results in highest quality cutting results.

Two independent gantries and two cutting heads work simultaneously over the entire working area. Their workload is balanced automatically by Elitron’s Twin Cut software and each cutting head comes with up to 5 tools.

Unloading: The patented Airo Panel makes light of unloading and stripping as no nicks are necessary. Single and multiple sheets are unloaded in one go using the powerful vacuum Airo Panel. Both product and waste materials are unloaded and deposited in the unloading bay, and the nick-free sheets are ready for the next process.

Allan Ashman of Atech, praises Elitron for their continued dedication to Research & Development.  “Elitron has yet again received a well-deserved prestigious award for innovation and development in automation. Atech are proud to be part of this and offer our customers the latest technology enabling them to increase productivity and reduce costs within a very competitive industry. Many companies are experiencing a shortage of labour and having a system capable of combining many processes and only requiring limited operators to run non-stop productivity is a definite advantage. Congratulations Elitron”.
