Information INLINE OFFSET CUTTING

Inline cutting has now truly become professional.

An end to fiddling, pasting, positioning. Simply exchange the
rubber blanket in your offset press for the flexible die complete
with blanket bars and you are ready to run!

You can now print, cut, perforate or crease in a single pass
to the highest standard of quality with maximum reliability
and productivity. And for repetitive runs the die is ready for immediate use.
