Taking a closer look at the RD-4055 in action


The latest generation Horizon RD-4055 die-cutting system from IFS was given its UK unveiling this week.

The enhanced system now incorporates a Dual Magnetic Cylinder delivering greater accuracy and sharper results, faster. It also features a simple receiving tray ensuring the product and waste are delivered together for cleaner, smoother, operation.

Designed to meet the growing demand for short run die-cut products, the RD-4055 has the ability to die-cut, crease, perforate, slit, hole punch and round corner in one process for digital and offset printed substrates up to 0.5mm. 

The repeat-register function enables the running of multiple up imposed applications with a smaller die to reduce die cost (Up to five repeats in a single pass). It can feed, die cut and separate in one pass at a speed of 6000 cycles per hour.

Bryan Godwyn, IFS Managing Director, commented, ‘The Horizon RD-4055 allows operations to die-cut a wide range of applications from brochures and folders to point of sale and promotional materials. We were pleased that so many UK printers were keen to see how this technology might help them elevate their service offering.’
