KAMA at Interpack with finishing for short-run cartons

At Interpack KAMA will be presenting an efficient workflow for processing and finishing digitally printed folding cartons with the KAMA DC 76 Foil ASB at the stand of HP Indigo (Hall 13, C77).

KAMA provides the complete workflow with the advanced DC 76 Foil ASB, presented at Interpack, and the unique KAMA FF 52i, the world’s first short-run folder gluer with set up at record speeds

The German based specialist for smart finishing solutions has optimised the versatile die-cutting and stamping machine with AutoRegister for the requirements in digital printing. New features reduce the setup time, servomotors simplify the hot foil stamping and increase performance and the tool-less inline stripping system with blanking saves additional time and costs. The result: Significantly reduced throughput times and accelerated ‘speed-to-market’ – customised for the growing demand of brand manufacturers for versioned packages ‘on demand’.

The complete workflow to the finished folding carton with the world’s first folder gluer for short runs, the KAMA FF 52i, includes the fully 100 per cent inspection of each and individual box (and ejection, if necessary). Thus, producing serial or personalised folding cartons in short and very short runs is possible: Quickly, straightforwardly and profitably.

For beauty and pharmaceutical packages…
‘We will show the fast job changes and the diversity of applications live on the advanced DC 76 Foil with printed sheets directly from the HP Indigo 10000 and 30000,’ said KAMA CEO Marcus Tralau. Folding boxes for markets with short runs such as beauty, food and pharmaceutics are processed – the beauty box precisely embellished with four hot foils and diagonal creasing lines for the automatic lock bottom, the pharmaceutical box with registered holograms and the Braille embossing prescribed in Europe in the future. Interpack will also see the premiere of the EasyFix-system by hinderer + mühlich in the KAMA machine for the B2 format, with pre-registered dies on a carrier plate for further time savings.

…and personalised gift boxes in a very short time
At the HP stand, visitors can directly take their photo-personalised gift boxes with them – printed on the HP Indigo 30000 with Tresu iCoat and converted on the KAMA DC 76 ASB. With the workflow, HP Indigo and KAMA address an exciting market with attractive margins: Individual short runs which are designed by the end customer himself, e.g. gift boxes for private events such as wedding, name day or summer party. The shape of the box remains the same so the suitable cutting die for these ‘unique repeat orders’ is available for immediate use.

The new solution aims at print providers and folding box makers who want to enter new markets in packaging with digital printing and value-adding postpress. The KAMA solutions combine proven expertise in converting and embellishing with newly developed tools required by digital printing. First workflows have already been successfully introduced into the market – for the pure folding box production and, in addition, the KAMA DC 76 ASB as a flexible finishing die cutter for job printing.
