ID Cut is a Mimaki solution that prints the cut-data in the form of a barcode between the register marks of the nested images. At the cutting plotter, both the barcode and registration marks are scanned by an optical sensor and cutting starts accordingly, without the need to send the cut-data separately, reducing human intervention.
The advantage of ID Cut explained
ID Cut applied
ID Cut not only offers highly accurate cutting, as it separates the print- and cut job completely, it strongly reduces the chances of operation mistakes (waste) while allowing additional steps in between (lamination), and increases overall unattended productivity (roll versus sheet).
ID Cut not applied
Since the alignment of the media in the cutter plotter and applying of the cut-data have to be performed manually, not only manual intervention is higher, it also limits the production runs.
