We don’t announce every new piece of equipment we buy, but this particular acquisition is too neat to put into service without at least mentioning it in a blog post and highlighting how it improves our workflow and the quality of our finished products.
Over the holidays we were happy to welcome the newest piece of finishing equipment in our shop — a Triumph 5560 programmable paper cutter. Perhaps you saw it going into our building in Cady’s Alley via crane on 12/21! This cutter makes finishing perfectly cut pieces so much easier. And while of course we’ve had nice paper cutters over the years, this one is quiet an upgrade. Have a look to the right and you’ll notice a few special things about this cutter. First, and foremost, it’s highly programmable. The electronic display not only allows us to input and save custom jobs with multiple automatic cuts; it also shows the exact dimension of each cut right down to hundredths of an inch. That’s incredibly precise, by the way. Next, you’ll notice there is no retractable safety glass on this cutter. The Triumph 5560 actually has sensors which prevent the blade from coming down while hands or anything are near, so no glass is necessary. This speeds up the cutting process immensely. The blade itself is an incredible display of quality, machined cutting prowess. And with the red LED optical cutting line you can see in the photo, there’s never a doubt that the next cut will be right on the mark.
So when you need invitations cut to precisely fit into envelopes, or menus that have to be a special size to fit into sleeves, or anything that must be cut EXACTLY to size, give us a call.
