Intec ColorCut. A future-proof investment

All ColorCut flatbed cutters are digital, enabling users to react instantly and on demand to any market opportunity. There is no need to send out and wait for the making of costly dies – users can start cutting immediately from suitable vector artwork.

ColorCut Pro software is supplied

This software reads vector artwork lines via the optical sensor, which retrieves the associated cutline from the Server’s Job Library. SmartMarks ensure perfect registration. This software gives the user sophisticated control over the entire cutting and creasing process – even enabling cut line modifications to be made on the fly.

ColorCut Pro

ColorCut Pro is a stand-alone application with a plugin, that can be installed on remote computers anywhere within the workflow environment, to perform contour cutting of paper card and synthetics. Intec supplies this with all ColorCut models to offer a complete turnkey solution.

For creatives the application enables artworkers to generate barcoded or QR coded cut files with associated job numbers, as an integral part of their design, for instant job recognition and file retrieval.

For print finishers the ColorCut Job Library enables users to retrieve previously prepared cut files into their workflow, without the need to launch Adobe® illustrator® or CorelDRAW®. This is typically used in a production environment, remote from the design studio.
