Vision control is necessary for digital finishing systems, according to i-cut Inc. (www.icutvision.com), because all printed materials contain size, rotation, and scaling distortions that, if not corrected, will lead to inaccurate digital die cutting. Version 7.1 of i-cut Vision, part of an integrated hardware and software solution, offers new features that i-cut says compensate for these distortions and enable digital cutting systems to produce error-free results. They include Adaptive Registration, designed to reduce the number of registration marks needed to adjust the orientation of a sheet on a table; the ability to eliminate overcuts automatically in sensitive materials by cutting away from inside corners; a Global Cutting Key library that allows a number of devices to share the same cutting-key libraries; multipassing for lasers; and more.
