SCREEN Graphic and Precision Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN GP, President Katsuhiko Aoki) has secured the exclusive distribution rights in Japan and South Korea for the motioncutter® digital laser cutting system developed by German company themediahouse. SCREEN GP will begin taking orders for the system from July 2015.
In recent years, improvement of opening and response rates for direct mail has become a key issue in marketing. The situation has led to the diversification of printed materials, with progressive use of variable type direct mail produced on digital printers, in addition to conventional large lot items with
uniform contents. It has also created a growing need for a new planning and design method that can add increased value to materials. In response, SCREEN GP has acquired the exclusive rights to distribute the motioncutter® digital laser cutting system in Japan and South Korea and also obtained sales rights
for the Asia and Oceania region.
The system features a proprietary three axis laser unit and advanced transfer technology that enable printed materials to be cut with extremely high speed. It also eliminates the restrictions created by the blade required for conventional folding and die cutting and enables the processing of small lot and variable jobs to be completed in a single pass. The system allows designers to be much more imaginative and gives them the freedom to turn standard printed materials into unique, personalized products.
SCREEN GP is dedicated to providing solutions that combine digital printing systems and the latest technologies. These solutions allow the creation of printed materials with high added value and contribute to the growth of the wider printing industry.
