|IDEAL PACK BIG MACHINE FEATURES INTO NEW COMPACT GUILLOTINE
The official distributors for IDEAL print finishing products in the UK, Duplo International, has announced the launch of the new IDEAL 4860-ET guillotine. Debuted at drupa, the machine is now available in the UK following a hot reception at Duplo's recent London Calling Rocks event at the O2 in early November.
IDEAL has long been the market leader in the small format guillotine market and this latest model looks sure to cement that position for the foreseeable future. Despite a footprint of less than a square metre, the 4860-ET guillotine has a 475mm cutting length, is fully programmable with 99 programmes and features an IR safety curtain - a feature normally only found on much larger models.
The machine is targeted squarely at the copy shop / mid-low volume SRA3 digital printer market and is designed with short-run fast turnaround work in mind. Marc Legge, UK Marketing Manager at Duplo explained, "At this end of the market most guillotines feature a transparent safety guard that has to be lifted and closed between each cut which can be a real drag on production. Replacing the plastic guard with an infra- red system means a typical job can completed in half the time."
Both the blade and clamp are controlled electro-mechanically whilst the backgauge is adjustable in 1/10mm increments for high precision cutting. The 4860-ET features a patented safety system and like all IDEAL guillotines, it is designed and manufactured in Germany so users can be certain of excellent build quality and accuracy.
IDEAL guillotines are available from Duplo's approved dealer network.
