Automates paper cutters up to 37"

Microcut 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 leadscrew wear.

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.
