ZERO – The Future of Automated Packaging and Display Production.

Digital Converting Machine ZERO is a packaging and display processing system based on over 20 years of hardware and software development experience.

Most Packaging and displays today are designed with over 80% of cutting and creasing lines in the horizontal and vertical directions. ZERO’s unique design focuses on this point: The ZERO system processes horizontal and vertical data with dedicated stages for each axis, and a third dedicated stage to process the remaining arcs and diagonal line data.

The system is designed with built in loading and unloading system to handle the automated future of processing. Once a job is started, ZERO loads, processes and unloads jobs without an operator.

ZERO offers greater speed, efficiency and productivity which provide faster delivery times for customers and greater cost savings for businesses.

Triple Table System: A New Concept Taking Shape

 

Stage Arrangements

The configuration of stages can be arranged to optimise the production to any business needs. With additional processing stages, production can be increased further.

ZERO Camera System

The ZERO camera option instantly reads printed sheets from underneath, making cutting and creasing on the reverse side of the sheet possible. The camera reads all marks during loading to ensure that no time is lost.

Knife Cutting

ZERO has a variety of knife tools available for processing. Oscillating knife, drag knife, V-notch and more tools off the ability to cut the industry’s most commonly used substrates. The tools are compatible with a large selection of blades to maximise cutting performance regardless of processing material or thickness.

Taping Units

ZERO is the only cutting system to offer an inline taping solution directly integrated into the same machine. High-accuracy taping in any direction is possible by mounting Taping Units on the free stage.

Perforation

The zipper perforation tool offers simple, high-speed application of zipper perforation lines. The blades simply roll over the material to apply a zipper pattern for easy opening of boxes and displays.

Operate ZERO’s Intuitive Interface by PC or Tablet for Maximum Flexibility

ZERO operation is performed through ZERO Controller, a control software specifically designed for the system. Through am intuitive, simple interface that is compatible with several major CAD formats, it is possible to operate ZERO with minimal setup. ZERO can be controlled not only by PC, but by tablet as well, allowing operators to control ZERO from any location around the machine.

Individual Material Settings

Individual settings can be defined for different tools and substrates. It is possible to set the assignment of processing tools by line type, cutting speed, acceleration and deceleration settings for fine R sections, and more.

Processing Preview for Each Stage

Even after the processing lines have been assigned to each stage, it is possible to preview and arrange settings for each stage.

The simple drag & drop interface allows intuitive operation with a tablet.
