Operating the DYSS X7 cutting at Projects and Print, one of the company’s latest investments

Five years after Projects and Print started, they have invested in a heavy duty router, an Anapurna direct-to-substrate digital printer, and a DYSS X7 digital cutter from AG/CAD. 

The purchases comes just months after its bought a 2.5m wide Anapurna printer. 

Chris Parker, managing director of Projects and Print, says: "We bought the Anapurna as it has the option of roll feeding as well as handling rigid sheets, which is ideal for the 12m long mesh banners we produce for Network Rail. 

"Furthermore, we print a lot of 50m rolls that require subsequent cutting. These rolls would take two members of staff four hours to cut and with our roll print quantities, this would see two men permanently deployed to hand cutting banners.

"We looked at every machine,” he adds, “but it was the DYSS that impressed us for processing 50m long rolls. 

"The DYSS has clamps that traverse along the bed on the gantry of the machine. After processing each section, the clamps automatically grip the material and the machine conveyor then pulls the roll forward very accurately for the next section to be processed.

“To ensure each consequent cut from the roll retains its precision, we print registration marks along the entire length of the roll. The K-Cut Vision system on the DYSS automatically locates these datum positions and cuts every sheet from the 50m roll with amazing precision."
