Formax Cut-True 31A Electric Guillotine Paper Cutter

Formax Cut-True 31A Paper Cutter

The Formax Cut-True 31A Electric Guillotine Paper Cutter offers precision cutting for paper stacks up to 28” wide, up to 4” high. User-friendly, intuitive features include a 7” color touchscreen control panel, automatically-adjusting back gauge and the capacity to program up to 100 jobs/100 cuts. An infrared light beam safety curtain provides safety and convenience as it shuts down operation if the light plane is interrupted.

Operation is simple with the full-color touchscreen for programming and selecting jobs. The foot-pedal pre-clamp and bright LED Cutting Line work together allowing operators to see exactly where the blade will cut and to make fine adjustments. Electronically-controlled two-hand operation engages the hardened steel blade for crisp, accurate cuts, every time. Cutting accuracy is 0.1mm on maximum paper stacks.

The Cut-True 31A features extra-large side tables, making it easier for operators to maneuver large paper stock. A false clamp is included to minimize the risk of marking sensitive paper stock or perfect bound books. The false clamp can be removed to decrease the minimum cut length to 1.18”, and stored within the machine when not in use. The Cut-True 31A also features an internal light to illuminate the cutting area.

Standard safety features include dual-button operation and an infrared safety curtain, a lock with key, blade lock, automatic blade return from any position, an easy-to-use blade change safety tool, and a wooden paper push for safe alignment.

The Cut-True 31A is ideal for transforming large sheets into brochures, invitations and more, with crisp, accurate cuts, and is a welcome addition to print shops and in-plant finishing operations.
