MBM Corporation (San Diego, CA), a leading U.S. supplier of paper cutters and finishing equipment for the graphics and printing industries, has unveiled two Triumph Paper Cutters equipped with advanced bindery technology from Scissor Hands – an award-winning cutting automation software. The paper cutters’ integration of the 2015 Must See ‘Ems Award Winner ensures a seamless cutting process, said the company. “It was only a matter of time before someone linked pre-press to post-press. Scissor Hands and Triumph made this connection,” said Rudi Baldwin, Training Coordinator at MBM. “Now, by following step-by-step visual directions, anyone can be a qualified cutter operator. This means the cutter is no longer the bottleneck in the shop, labour costs are cut, and a quicker job turnaround time is possible. This is the future of finishing products, and we at MBM are excited to be working with Scissor Hands to deliver these cutting-edge advancements to the market.”

A strategic partner since 2017, MBM offers the award-winning software on its Triumph machines – “the world’s most reliable and safest cutters.” Shown at Print 17 this year were the Triumph 6660 and 5260 Automatic Paper Cutters with patented Easy Cut electronic blade activation bars. Live cutting demonstrations of popular marketing materials, including bookmarks and 4” x 6” postcards, were processed throughout the four-day show. Cutter operators were fully trained within hours on how to follow Scissor Hands’ guided animations on the mounted touchscreen. Step-by-step animated instructions guided cutter operators of all levels through entire runs, cutting down on training time and lowering labour costs. Cutter operators also handled less product before finishing, reducing cutting errors with overall cutting times decreased by up to 60% said the company. “Scissor Hands’ advanced technology delivers optimized cut programs that maximize cutting efficiency and eliminate complex manual programming. Its innovative software augments existing guillotine, die cutters and laser cutters, making full use of the machine’s capabilities.”
