Automates paper cutters
up to 37"
jr. is designed to automate backgauge movement on any paper cutter, 37
inches (92 cm) or smaller. The benefits include increased productivity,
greater accuracy and improved reliability.
An easy-to-read vacuum fluorescent 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 current
backgauge position is clearly displayed in inches, centimeters or millimeters,
depending on operator preference.
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. The system's patented DC drive assures mechanical repeatability
of the backgauge position to ± .002 inch (.05 mm) regardless of
Microcut jr. 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 insures data retention.
A proprietary power console accepts a broad range of voltages, 50 or 60 Hz,
and has provisions for control of air and such external devices as loading
and off-loading equipment.
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.
All Microcut systems are designed not only for ease of operation, but for many
years of trouble-free service. In the unlikely event service is required, on-board
diagnostics, together with modular construction and plug-in connectors, insure
GMS's ability to provide timely and responsive after-sale support.
