CMYKHUB of Australia Chooses the Insignia7H by Rollem to Give 400 Percent Uptake on Previous Die Cutting Technology

CMYKhub is now the new owner of a hybrid Rollem Insignia, having bought the machine from Graph-Pak.

The company’s CEO Dayne Nankervis said it purchased the Rollem Insignia IS7 H as the company was looking to improve its service to customers with better quality and faster turnarounds, decrease the technical skill required for production, and provide a base to allow an increase in its product offerings.

CMYKhub has been purchasing machines from Graph-Pak since its early days. It has several Graph-Pak installations around the country – from large laminators, small laminators, Digital Ink Jet spot UV machines – and the most recent installation is this rotary die cutter.

Nankervis said CMYKhub was attracted to the simplicity of operation and the flexibility of the Rollem Insignia IS7 H as the model allows the company to maintain a competitive price point when it only needs one flexible die.

Graph-Pak managing director Tom Ralph said as CMYKhub has a reputation of leading the way with technology and innovation, it chose the latest model Insignia Seven Hybrid machine which houses two cutting drums.

The H model dual magnetic Insignia systems reportedly offer the ability to utilize a single cutting tool, or a paired set of dies when looking to produce packaging products or other scored work.

When running a single cutting die, a “blank” lower jacket is wrapped around the lower cylinder and acts as the cutting surface for the upper die. This setup allows for cost savings on tooling when producing straight die cut product and/or diecut/kisscut decal work.

If producing boxes or the like, a paired set of dies allow for zero make ready from machine operators as well as enables embossing and/or debossing of substrates in a single pass.

Insignia machines weigh between two and five tons depending on size of machine (die cutting section only). These machines are built strong with thick solid side-frames measuring between 38 to 64 millimeters to house the cylinder section and support the cutting station.

The Insignia machines are offered in two delivery configurations – with a StackMaster Receding Stacking Unit, which is designed to accept either full sheets of kiss cut labels or die cut product, or with a Shingle Conveyor Table that delivers cut pieces out for continuous offloading.

The StackMaster delivery system is designed for high volume runs, requiring less offloading labor from an operator. This delivery system becomes very important when running die cut product in many lanes as the offloading labor becomes intensive.
