SEI Laser: Offering a True, streamlined die-less workflow
True digital finishing uses high speed laser technology to deliver the most productive finishing solution eliminating the need for costly tooling or dies and lengthy changeovers.
True digital finishing can deliver a fast and efficient workflow that goes from PDF files directly to printed, cut, counted rolls, or sheets that are ready to ship. The prepress department creates the print file and the die file in one PDF. A True digital finishing solution, offered by SEI Laser’s Labelmaster, Packmaster, and Paperone finishing machines, can read a QR code or barcode, instantly read the PDF file, and understand job cutting instructions on the fly. Just as digital printing presses can print many different jobs of various run lengths quickly and efficiently, SEI Laser’s True digital finishing solutions can cut, finish and complete many different jobs of various run lengths, on demand.
