The New CardXtra Plus
Morgana Launches Dual-Purpose Creaser and Card Cutter
The latest digital finishing device to be added to the Morgana range is a fusion of the company’s well-proven blade and matrix creasing technology with the latest in accurate, high-speed business card cutting.
According to Morgana m.d. Quen Baum, the new CardXtra Plus has been designed to meet the digital printer’s need for multi-functional finishing systems which save space and time as well as contributing to extra productivity. As a business card cutter, the new unit is claimed to be several times more accurate than rival machines, working to an accuracy of +/- 0.1mm. It will produce 250 cards in less than two minutes, enabling printers to offer a ‘while you wait’ service for a job that would necessitate 18 cuts on a guillotine. Suction fed, it takes A3-plus sheets up to 375 gsm and has templates for a wide range of card formats.
The incorporation of the blade and matrix creasing mechanism into the CardXtra Plus means that it can take SRA3 sheets, trim them to A3 and produce finished A4 4 page booklets. Just as easily it will finish the job to A4, which can then be creased to make 4 page A5 leaflets or it will produce multiple creases for a variety of applications.
