Microcut® ECO

Bring new life to paper cutters

Technology moves quickly. The first thing to become obsolete on a paper cutter is the computer. The microcut® allows you to completely replace your computer to automate jobs, increase productivity and bring new life to an older paper cutter. Our Microcut ECO is our top of the line unit featuring a 10” wide touch screen.

We designed the Microcut ECO as a powerful and economic option specifically targeted for smaller format machines 37” (95cm) or smaller. The ECO quickly and efficiently moves the backgauge into correct position more accurately than skilled manual operation.

A full-color, 7” capacitive format touch screen display guides the operator, with all operations presented in an intuitive, easy-to- understand format. Setup is fast and simple, with no complicated codes to memorize or reference.

The system frees the operator from the wasted time and risk of error associated with repetitive data entry. Its ability to automatically program a job while cutting the first lift turns setup time into production time, making automation effective for even two and three lift jobs.

The entry and review of programs is quick and easy. Fractions, corrections, additions, or deletions can be easily entered through the keyboard. Non volatile memory insures data is never lost.

Many paper cutters already have some form of automatic backgauge control, but may have become difficult and expensive, if not impossible, to maintain. These machines are generally sound mechanically and, with the addition of Microcut ECO, can quickly and easily be returned to a high level of productivity and reliability for a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

"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
