AG/CAD Designs Large Format Success for PS2

DYSS X7 Digital CutterAs a company that has invested over £750k in the last 12 months, PS2 Print Ltd has developed from a repro print and design business to a company that can fulfil virtually all print demands. Since its inception in 1995, the Runcorn based company has rapidly evolved with its latest diversification being to enter the large format print sector.
The entry into large format work over the last five years has grown significantly for PS2 Print and to support this growth the company acquired an OCE Arizona 8’ by 4’ flatbed UV printer in January that was followed by a DYSS X7 2616C, 8’ by 4’ cutting table from AG/CAD in April. Commenting upon the acquisitions, Company Director Mr Simon Langford said: “We were doing our large format printing such as reel to reel, exhibition displays, external graphics and POS printing on roll fed machines, which wasn’t always cost effective or efficient. The introduction of the OCE flatbed made us more cost effective, competitive and has opened new doors for the business. However, as a company that is always looking to develop new markets, the DYSS X7 was the next natural step for us.”
PS2 DYSS X7 Digital CutterMr Langford studied the market and visited the cutting table manufacturers at the Sign UK show. “DYSS wasn’t a name that was initially on my radar, but as soon as I had a demo of the machine and the software, I was sold on the complete package. The machine was excellent, the KaseMake software was better than the alternate packages and the technical expertise and support has been remarkable. The demo showed how the software adds value to our business by giving us the capability to go to the market with on-screen demos of parts that can be presented in a retail environment. It was the expertise of the team doing the demo that really sold me on the package.”

PS2 DYSS X7 Digital CutterThe DYSS cutting table has brought new work into the business by enabling the company to offer superior customer presentations through the KaseMake software that are backed up by the capabilities of the DYSS X7 2616C. As Mr Langford continues: “The DYSS is used daily and has been producing jigsaws, boxes, counter top displays and cut out people for exhibitions – all jobs we couldn’t previously do. It also allows us to trial new products and do in-store development work, thereby enlarging our customer base and bringing more work in from existing customers.”
“Furthermore, in a cost competitive environment, the DYSS has significantly reduced the cost of many jobs, making us more competitive and more profitable whilst offering the customer far more. For example, many jobs on the DYSS come direct from our roll fed printers and one regular batch of 100 banners used to take the finishing department two days to cut out by hand, however this is now done on the cutting table in only 4 hours.”
Whilst many of the company’s large print runs are cut on a Heidelberg Cylinder, the DYSS has created remarkable efficiencies on its smaller print runs, especially complex boxes and shapes. Recently the company produced 50 presentation folders and 100 bespoke cubes that were printed on the OCE and transferred straight to the DYSS. The boxboard cubes were creased and cut out on the DYSS and by doing this, PS2 reduced the cost of the job by a significant amount.
PS2 DYSS X7 Digital CutterThe DYSS X7 incorporates three cutting heads that can accommodate routers, knives, creasing tools and kiss cut tools that can be programmed for each job and material type to simplify operation for the end user. Additionally, the easy tool leveling system calibrates tool height offsets automatically to reduce the operator input. This system works in synergy with the K-Cut vision system that records uniform distortions that are commonplace in all print and media jobs and calculates optimised cutting paths to deliver precise cutting and reduced waste, time and again.
Commenting on these features, Mr Langford says: “We have a frequent print run of 200 posters that we couldn’t previously print or cut. The roll fed OCE prints 100 posters overnight and these are then transferred to the DYSS, which also has a roll feeding set-up. This allows us to set the job on the cutting table and cut in one hour as opposed to a full day. The K-Cut vision system automatically calibrates the cutting path and guarantees 100% accuracy on every job, resulting in less mistakes and less wastage. These posters are a job that we wouldn’t have previously taken on, as the labor input wouldn’t have made it cost effective for us to do the job.”
From a profitability perspective, Mr Langford believes the DYSS will have a payback period of 12 months. The 31 employee company was previously sending upwards of £30,000 of work out for subcontract cutting, which has now been brought back in-house. This has improved the processing of the job, the profitability and lead times for PS2, enabling the company to react faster to customer demands.
Supporting this ability to react to customers is the KaseMake software that complements the DYSS cutting table. As Mr Langford continues: “With the KaseMake package we can design and display our products with an in-store format for customers to view. This has enabled us to design and implement POS & POP projects that wouldn’t have previously been possible.”
PS2 DYSS X7 Digital Cutter“From a day-to-day perspective, the package has thousands of templates for boxes, folders and all types of shapes that can all be easily manipulated to our exact needs. This has reduced the time required by the design department to deliver a concept to the customer and then through the shop floor to finished product. This software is continually updated to ensure we will always have the most up-to-date package available.”
Highlighting how the DYSS has improved the throughput of work at PS2, Mr Langford concludes: “The complete package has been a revelation for our business. The KaseMake software has improved our design capabilities and lead times as well as our presentations to customers whilst the cutting table has opened up markets beyond our scope. Not only can we cut, crease and bend forms previously beyond our remit, we can also cut acrylic, Di-Bond, box board, Foamex and other materials in thicknesses beyond 10mm that we couldn’t have accurately cut by hand. This has improved our quality, consistency, accuracy and above all lead-times. We are delighted with the DYSS and OCE combination and we are destined to expand our large format business considerably with the combination.” To see how a DYSS X7 can benefit your company contact us for a demonstration on:

The DYSS X5 Digital Cutter

 

DYSS X5 Digital Cutter

The DYSS X5 comes in a range of sizes.

The X5 has been designed specifically to handle all the proto-typing, sample-making and short/medium run production needs of packaging companies.

The X5 comes in a variety of sizes with versatile tooling to suit all common packaging substrates. Folding boxboard, corrugated and display board; and even structural honeycomb boards, textiles and paper can be processed, along with many other materials.

DYSS X5 Corrugated

The X5 handles corrugated, carton, and more.

DYSS X5 sample cutting tables combine this flexibility with lightning fast performance and semi or fully automatic feeding options and you have a genuine, 24/7 digital production machine able to service conventionally or digitally printed short to medium runs.

The X5 is available with a range of options including a conveyorised bed, and automated sheet feeders to turn the table into a full production unit.

Features:

  • Precise high speed cutting of materials up to 1.6 metres wide, including rolls of unlimited length
  • Precision cutting of jobs longer than the table with the automatic roll feed and conveyor system.
  • Touch-N-Go! Easy tool levelling system. It enables all tools to calibrate height offset automatically.
  • Printing and media distortions are present in all jobs. K-Cut efficiently records these non-uniform distortions and calculates new optimized cut paths thus giving precise results time
  • and time again. This reduces waste and enhances quality.
  • The new K-Cut software allows the operator to select the material they are cutting and to have the option to visualize recommended tools with optimized cutting speeds. This adds efficiency and support to the operator when testing and working with new and unfamiliar materials.

The X5 digital cutter has been designed in several compact sizes perfect for the sample maker who does not work with wide format materials.
Although smaller than the X7, the X5 is as versatile and at the same time faster, and at a much lower cost.
