Capital Graphic Supplies marks more firsts in India

New Delhi-based Capital Graphic Supplies/AS Print Aids Pvt Ltd recently received two orders for Serviform machines. Zenith Diemakers (P) Ltd, Bangalore has bought the first ‘TACTO BRAILLE’ machine, while SB Diemaker Co, Faridabad ordered the first ‘IDEA’ machine in the country.

The revolutionary machine Tacto has been specifically developed to respond to the demands of the diemaker who needs an almost immediate availability of male embossing tools for Braille. The main operation performed by the machine include: cutting stripes into length, punching a corner in order to avoid mistakes during tools positioning, punching braille dots according to Fefco standards, and scribing on the surface the text of the braille embossing. Getting data from CF2 or DXF file, it can produce in a very short time the male tools which will be installed into a cutting die. The machine can also be programmed directly with the use of a user friendly graphic interface. All the punching/cutting operations are performed by a pneumatic cylinder while the measuring, scribing and shift operation are performed using CNC. The whole machine structure has been conceived to create a device which can also be used in an office environment.

IDEA is said to be the most advanced fully automatic diemaking machine available in the market. Conceived to fulfill the highest quality demand, Idea features all the operations a modern diemaker needs. It can process steel rule from 18 mm to 32 mm (.708” to 1.250”) high in thickness of 1.5, 2, 3 and 4 Pt. Due to a completely new bending tool structure, changing from one pointage to another is a matter of seconds and bending limits of machines in the market are just a memory! A revolutionary grinding unit for nicks produces perfect geometric and uniform nicks all in a straight line process. The machine is also equipped with a completely re-designed dual operation in-line broaching unit, and the broaching tool can be easily adjusted through software and the broaching depth can be changed without any problem, making broaching faster, cleaner and burr free.
