If you’re considering introducing an in-house cutter for your labels, you have three equipment options to choose from: rotary cutter, laser cutter, and plotter.
Each type of equipment has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. Rotary equipment is a great option for high-volume label cutting, but the cost of customizing flexible dies for each order can be significant in terms of both money and time. Laser cutting is a great option if you need to cut a variety of designs in small quantities or if you’re looking to work with different materials, such as tapes and reflective films. Plotters are ideal for producing smaller quantities of labels and offer a cost-effective option for low-volume label cutting.
Low-volume, high-variety laser label cutting offers a range of benefits, including precise cutting for intricate shapes, versatile cutting through a range of materials, fast cutting for high-mid volume production, cost-effectiveness without the need for expensive tooling or dies, and an efficient process with minimal waste and easy customization.
The ANY-CUT III laser cutter can cut at speeds up to 45M/min, making it the perfect pairing for medium and high-end labelers (Xeikon, Dantex, KM, Epson, Screen, etc.), while the ANY-CUT II is perfect for use with smaller digital label printers (OKI, Primera, Memjet, Epson, etc.) thanks to its smaller.
