Insight Graphic Systems, a partner of Diversified Graphic Machinery, is featured in the August/September issue of Inside Finishing magazine. This issue’s “Tech Watch” section focuses on the Die Co-Ordinator and the groundbreaking software which accompanies the machine.
“Well aware of the margin pressures facing luxury carton producers, the leading hot foil press manufacturers were quick to introduce new models to improve machine uptime, productivity and output quality. Features such as longer dwell time, machines running at lower pressures and temperatures, larger sheet sizes, improved registration, faster foil changes, reduced foil wastage and higher production speeds are all much appreciated, but do nothing to address the issue of reducing job set-up.”
“Founded in 1995, Insight Graphic Systems markets the Foil Connect system that incorporates various elements to provide reduced set-ups (50-60 percent), increased run speed of the hot foil stamper (+10 percent), reduced foil per job (-5-15 percent) and reduced time for estimates (-5-10 minutes per job).”
