PATERSON, NJ—September 20, 2013—With the successful introduction of a 57˝ dual rotary knife precision sheeter and a strategic sales partnership announcement with Komori America leading the way, Colter & Peterson attracted a high level of attention at PRINT 13, held September 8-12 in Chicago.
“With the exception of the last day at the show, I was very happy with the amount of people that made it a point to stop by and talk with us,” said Bruce Peterson, president of Colter & Peterson, North America’s largest independent distributor of paper cutters and paper handling equipment. “The interest in our new precision sheeter was unbelievable and better than I expected.

Operated in combination with a user-friendly Accutrim HD1680 three knife trimmer, it impressed many show visitors with its innovative, modular design and the newest technology with Siemens electronics. But the sheeter’s highest praise was earned for its unique ability to cut up to 800 feet per minute with a +/- .010 inch cutoff accuracy.

The highly popular Saber paper cutters are manufactured to ISO-9001 standards with cutting edge technology. Incredibly reliable, they offer automatic knife adjustment, Microcut 15˝ touch screen controls and many other outstanding features.
