POLAR BM-105M is an automatic bander with manual loading, designed for banding square cut label stacks. The equipment perfectly complements the manual single-head bander BS-23 and the automated multi-station bander BM-105. The BM-105M is also an excellent upgrade from the B1-E multi-station bander, which has been used in many print houses for years. It has compatibility with any POLAR high-speed cutter.
Stages of Operation
With almost 2,000 Compucut® systems installed POLAR is the global leader in workflow integration for cutting machines. POLAR’s Compucut® has been on the market for more than 25 years. It allows making use of the available prepress data and automatically generating cutting programs outside the high-speed cutter. This reduces the machines set-up time to almost zero.
At drupa, POLAR is now presenting the new Compucut® Generation 5.0. This version offers some outstanding features: For example, a new software platform that now allows representation of graphic languages. Another extraordinary feature is the true-picture representation with integrated extra information. The settings already determined in pre-press can be transferred via the JDF file, e. g. the individual product sizes, production runs or pieces of information concerning the processing after cutting. While generating the cutting program with Compucut® the operator is shown the relevant data within the true image and can take this information into account. For example, if part of the sheet must be laminated after cutting, the respective block can be omitted for the moment. The high-speed cutter operator can view essential information directly onto the screen without any time consuming search on the routing slip. New features are the simulation of the cutting cycle, as well as the Japanese, Chinese and Spanish language versions. Compucut® is an essential part of the overall networking concept POLAR P-Net.
