Microcut® JR

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 JR is our most economical unit designed for smaller format cutters.

Microcut JR moves the backgauge into the correct position faster and more accurately than skilled manual operation. The confidence of computer-controlled precision translates into significant productivity increases - often 50% and more.

An easy-to-read liquid crystal display, featuring icons and symbols, guides the operator through all programming operations. Setup is fast and simple, with no complicated codes to memorize or reference.

The system memorizes cutting sequences instantly, stores them indefinitely and recalls them at the touch of a button. The system frees the operator from the wasted time and risk of error associated with repetitive manual positioning. Its ability to automatically program a job while cutting the first lift turns setup time into productive time, making automation effective for even two and three lift jobs.

Keyboard entry and review of programs is quick and easy. Advanced programming options include label and sheet divide, allowing complicated jobs to be programmed with only a few data entries. Fractions, lay changes, additions or deletions can be easily entered through the keyboard. Non-volatile memory ensures data retention.

Many paper cutters already have some form of automatic backgauge control, but may have become difficult and expensive to maintain. These machines are generally sound mechanically and, with the addition of Microcut JR., 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
