S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • November 2015 • 89 PALLET-BASED SHEET FEEDER MCT, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has added pallet-based sheet feed- ing capability to its Versa-Tech automated finishing system. The new solution is essentially the 4th evolution of sheet feeder design based on the work previously done by the management team at MGE, Inc. This version was developed to ensure that the design was both simple and robust, that it could handle the widest variety of substrates, that pallets could be loaded from three sides and that essentially the same design could be used for both the 1.6 meter wide Versa-Tech tables and the 3.2 meter wide tables. All these objectives were accomplished. For more information, visit LASER ENGRAVER Trotec Laser, Canton, Michigan, introduces the newest member of the Speedy product line, the Speedy 360. Features include a new high-accuracy focus mode, an enhanced working area designed to optimize the working area and accommodate standardized mate- rial sizes, and a multifunctional table design. With a working area of 32" x 20", the Speedy 360 was developed to accommodate more standard material sizes. This saves time and money because there is no need to pre-cut materials. In addition, Speedy 360 is designed to increase production capacity by processing at maximum speed of 140 inches/sec.

The SID XL 1390 laser engraver comes equipped with a 100W laser tube, however there is now a new 150W upgrade option that utilizes CO 2 laser tube technology. This upgrade allows the SID XL 1390 laser engraver cut through even thicker materials and engrave at faster speeds. The advantages of CO 2 laser tube technology in comparison to other laser tube technology in the market mainly relate to the cutting speed when processing thicker materials. The CO 2 machine is faster in a straight line and also has much faster piercing times at the start of the cut. There is also the advantage of a smoother surface finish with the CO 2 machine when cutting thicker materials. The U.S.-manufactured sensors and precision laser cutting head ensure the precise engraving of the finest details, such as circles only 2mm in diameter. The laser tube and power source undergo rigorous five-step testing to guarantee optimal beam quality and power reliability.
