Elitron is set to unveil an updated digital cutting system, Kombo TAV, at drupa in Dusseldorf later this month.

Paolo Malatesta, Elitron’s Executive Director, says: “The NEW ERA of the Kombo TAV fully automatic, integrated, digital cutting system is here

“This is the only cutting system with a fully integrated, patented pallet management system and it has now become even more outstanding, so it’s a real game-changer and a must-see for all those investing in digital finishing and looking for ROI in the shortest timeframe.”

The solution’s new “next-generation” control board, re-designed electronics, and new motion control system with faster communication protocol aim to take it to the next level.

Multi-stack pallets of boards feed directly into the Kombo TAV, with individual sheets being loaded, aligned, cut and creased, and then unloaded using the integrated Airo Panel for a clean-cut and aligned palleted stack.

Daniele Gallucci, Elitron America’s President, claims that the new solution brings productivity benefits, with “35% faster speed, 40% greater production efficiency and -30% energy consumption which all add up to place the Kombo TAV in a class of its own.”

“Furthermore, the system is not only ready for Industry 4.0 but it’s also ready for Industry 5.0 and future AI integration.”

In addition to the NEW Kombo TAV, Eltron will also be showcasing another new system in in Hall 16, Stand D11 at drupa. The compact Spark is a cutting system for sample making, with a multi-tool cutting head, patented Seeker System vision system and Stressless Working Technology for immediate sample production.
