Paper Cutters — Slicing Through the Competition
Ty Adams, MAN Roland: Paper handling equipment. "We are seeing a higher demand for joggers, pile hoists, unloaders and pile turners."
Robb Gould, The Challenge Machinery Company: Air on the cutting table and side tables. "This one feature can make a huge difference in the operator's productivity over the course of the day. In fact, Challenge believes in this feature to such a degree that all Champion 301⁄2˝ and 37˝ cutters now offer optional air side tables, along with providing air as standard equipment on the main table."
Terry Lee, Dexter Lawson Manufacturing: Customers are seeking cheaper and more simplified loading and unloading systems.
Mark Pellman, Baumfolder: Airbeds for sheet sizes of 20x26˝ and bigger, with 4˝ of paper. "Customers are realizing it's easier to get the job done if they have an airbed."
Mark Hunt, Standard Finishing Systems: Easy-to-use and productive operator interfaces. "Standard Horizon cutters are equipped with simple, but powerful, programming features that allow operators to memorize frequent job setups and to easily build cut routines with push-outs built into the program. That makes the operator's job easier and increases shop productivity."
Len Rivett, Perfecta USA: Handling and peripheral equipment to increase throughput of the paper cutter while eliminating lifting and bending, thus reducing back injuries and expensive insurance claims.
