ArtSystems has introduced two new print finishing trimmers that it says will make 'ideal partners' to the HP Latex printers during busy production runs. The Xativa AutoTrim XY and the Xativa Textile Super Trim are manufactured in Italy and carry a one-year onsite warranty provided by ArtSystems’ Service and Technical division.
The AutoTrim XY is an automatic trimmer for sheets and rolls up to 1650mm wide and designed for simultaneous cutting on all four sides. An optical sensor reads a diverse range of marks to cut quickly and accurately in both dimensions. It can handle a range of media including photo paper, vinyl, banner, polyester, polycarbonate film and many others. Advanced alignment technology ensures optimised straightness, rapid roll loading, cutter positioning and accurate cutting.
The Xativa Textile Super Trim is a precise electric cutter with independent rotary blade which can be heated up to 350°C, particularly suitable to cut natural and synthetic fabrics with bi-directional cut. The cutting carriage has a variable speed for different kinds of materials, ideal for soft signage applications that require real post production. The Xativa Textile Super Trim is available in 1650mm, 2800mm and 3400mm wide models.
ArtSystems' sign and display division director, Andrew Edwards, comments, "We wanted to offer our resellers additional print finishing options to address problems such as bottle-neck delays, which can occur during busy production runs. Modern wide format printers like the HP Latex L26500 can produce high volumes of print but if these cannot be finished with the same speed and quality then there is a danger that the productivity gains can be lost. The new Xativa trimmers are manufactured to the highest quality in Italy, we then cover the warranty here in the UK. They are simply the best trimmers in the market for their applications."
