Microcut® bringing new life to paper cutters

Purchasing a new paper cutter is a huge investment. The most common thing that becomes obsolete on a paper cutter is its computer control system. Microcut® offers two solutions to update your paper cutter computer control system. Our products will allow you to automate jobs, increase productivity and bring new life to an older paper cutter for a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

Let Microcut® make your paper cutter smarter, safer and last longer. Developed by C&P Microsystems, the world leader in paper cutter automation, Microcut units will update the backgauge movement on any make, model, and size paper cutter while offering increased productivity, greater accuracy, and improved reliability. The addition of Microcut software will optimize the performance of any used paper cutter, easily giving it a higher level of performance for a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

It all starts with the Microcut’s easy-to-use operator interface: setup and programming is fast and simple, with no complicated codes to memorize. The backgauge position is clearly shown using the unit of measurement you prefer. Advanced programming options allow complicated jobs to be initiated with only a few keystrokes. Easily enter fractions or lay changes. Make cut additions or deletions. Our non-volatile memory ensures you never lose data. The Microcut PLUS WS is also CIP 3/4-enabled and network compatible which means you can quickly and easily convert .JDF files that contain cut-block information.

"We are able to transfer data from the cut files in prepress. This is a really nice added benefit for our more complex jobs, and something we could not do with the other paper cutters we were considering."
Kirk Larsen, Graphic Partners
