Unveiling The VeloBlade 68

Due to the incredible success of VeloBlade64, launched at The Print Show back in September 2019. We took the decision to extend the VeloBlade range to include a larger system, VeloBlade 68. This new digital die-cutting system provides the ability to cut sheets up to B2 as well as a selection of enhanced features for even greater efficiency and productivity.

Richard Marlow, Vivid Sales Director said, “the VeloBlade range has been incredibly well-received. It just made sense to bring a larger model to market, the VeloBlade 68 is the ideal choice for those businesses who need to produce bigger artwork or have a greater volume of products to produce”.

Features & Functionality

VeloBlade 68 provides all of the great features of its smaller compatriot, with the added benefits of being able to manage a wider variety of stocks. Also, a rotating cutting knife for the cleanest of finishes, laser registration technology, individually activated vacuum clamps and zonal conveyor belt for efficient stock placement.

Create a workflow of various different artwork, load 100mm of up to 1.5mm or 1200gsm stock and let the VeloBlade 68 do its thing. Individually activated gantry mounted vacuum clamps operate alongside air separation jets. Enabling you to select the ideal feeding function to set your stock into production. From here, the zonal vacuum grip conveyor belt holds stock securely in place. Zonal selection ensures that whatever stock you load onto the belt, it is held in place in the most efficient way.

Before cutting commences, VeloBlade 68 will locate your registration marks using a CCD Registration Camera, this will ensure the consistency of finish throughout the job. However, if you’re given artwork that doesn’t have registration marks, the VeloBlade 68 can still manage efficient and accurate finishes thanks to its laser registration system.

Now cutting can begin. VeloBlade 68 is fitted with a pneumatic rotating knife, which works in a way where even the most intricate of cutting is completely seamless and you’ll be left with a flush finish, no matter the cut. Once all cutting, creasing and perforating is complete, the stock is automatically stacked in the collection tray.
