Spartanics introduces X-350 Laser Die Cutting Module

Leading label laser cutting machine manufacturer, Spartanics, has unveiled a new market changing technology for label converters looking to achieve optimal results with lower start up costs.  Spartanics proudly introduces the X-350 Laser Cutting Module, engineered to be integrated seamlessly into Smag Graphique’s E-Cut and Digital Galaxie Semi-rotary Converting Solutions.

The X-350 is a modular laser station that can cut material up to 350 mm wide with an infinite length.  It is capable of reaching cutting speeds of up to 100m/minute, comes standard with Spartanics’ Fastline and Optimization Control Software and is available in either a 200 watt laser or 400 watt laser.    Since the X-350 is modular, it can be integrated into a SMAG converting solution from equipment inception or at a future date.

“The X-350 module provides label converters a more flexible finishing solution that is equipped with all of the features our existing customers have come to expect from a market leading laser supplier,” says VP of Sales and Marketing, Mike Bacon.

SMAG’s E-Cut Semi-Rotary Converting System is  a basic label finishing solution that can be equipped with a 200 watt or 400 watt Spartanics X-350 laser die cutter, a semi-rotary die cutting station, a flexo varnish station, lamination and a slitter; everything you need to get your basic label job completed.

Label converters in search of a semi-rotary converting system with more modularity and converting options will be enticed by the Digital Galaxie Converting Solution.  The Digital Galaxie is the most complete label converting solution for printed roll applications.  In addition to the flexibility of a modular semi-rotary converting system, label converters are able to customize this press with a robust list of converting options, such as: 400 watt X-350 Spartanics laser die cutter, flatbed screen printer, semi-rotary foil, flatbed die cutter, semi-rotary die cutter, flatbed foil, flatbed embossing, and a full rotary or semi-rotary UV flexo station.
