TCS-Supplied Grafcut 52 Guillotine Gives Secprint The Edge

Rotherham digital printer Secprint has invested in a Grafcut 52H fully hydraulic guillotine from Terry Cooper Services to support its delivery of high quality security print. The guillotine will enable the security print specialist to enhance its production of vouchers, tickets and security papers on a Xerox J75, and Ricoh C651 and a Konica Minolta. Explains general manager Brian Terry: “We had an old Polar but it was time to upgrade. We looked at Polar and Ideal but liked the Grafcut for a number of reasons. We liked its hydraulic clamp and its decent cutting depth. The lightguard is also great and we got a good price.” He continues: “There is a lot more automation than we were used to. Its ability to easily programme and store jobs makes us more productive. It has increased our capacity because we can now complete jobs much faster. It has improved the quality of the finish too.” The Grafcut 52H features maximum format of 520 mm width x 520 mm depth and high cutting accuracy 0.1 mm of max paper stack. The small foot-printed, fully-programmable, single-phase electricity, sturdy system offers the choice of electric motor driven clamp and knife or full hydraulic operation. All models include light barrier, infra-red cutting light beam, and full programmability via a touchscreen. Terry concludes “It has made a big difference. Finishing is everything and the Grafcut delivers helping us improve our service.”
