Océ has introduced its new Océ ProCut digital cutting solutions, which comprise a range of ProCut Digital Cutting Tables, ProCut Software, and pre- and post-installation service and support. The ProCut digital cutting solutions are automated finishing systems that can be used to optimize basic trimming tasks for rigid substrates such as hard and soft foam board, plastic material, acrylic and styrene, and flexible media including paper, film, vinyl and fabric. They can also be used to finish more complex jobs such as contour-cut point-of-purchase displays, production-quantity decals, and structural projects.

Designed and manufactured for Océ by Zünd, the ProCut Digital Cutting Tables are suitable for roll media, sheets or rigid substrates up to 1.9-in. thick; the tables can be utilized on output from any manufacturer's printer.

Four sizes are available: 52.36 x 98.42, 70.86 x 98.42, 70.86 x 125.98, and 86.61 x 125.98 in. A modular tool system enables the operator to mount up to three tools at the same time (for simple jobs, cut speeds can be maximized by removing nonessential tools – and excess weight – from the carriage). All tables feature an aluminum-composite table top, an innovative self-adjustable vacuum system and advanced industrial dust protection.

Océ ProCut Software is included to prepare files for cutting. The Océ ProCut Prepress module enables quick and easy preparation of registration marks, barcodes and tool assignment (and enables scaling or tiling of a job before cutting). The Océ ProCut Nesting module gives users the ability to quickly nest images based on their actual shape or nest multiple jobs on the same media. Specialized vision software is included that compares the cut data to the position of the registration marks on the print and accurately drives the cutter along the cut path (it also compensates for image or material distortion such as shrinking or stretching).

Pricing starts at $69,500 for the Océ ProCut 2500 M model table only.
